See This Irish Cottage-inspired Home On Lake Minnetonka

Nestled in one of Lake Minnetonka’s most coveted bays sits a gorgeous Irish cottage-inspired home that was completely reimaged for empty nesters by The Sitting Room.

This waterfront home in Minnesota possesses an aged grace, radiating storybook charm through a blend of materials – stone walls, arched doorways, plaster walls, oak lintels, and wide-planked, wire-brushed European white oak floors.

The 4,500-square-foot interior, with its thoughtfully sized rooms, exemplifies meticulous detailing over excessive scale.

Enhancing the lake view framed by arched windows, the living area was adorned in a palette of soothing creams and blues, reflected in textures such as cashmere, mohair, wool, and Belgian linen.

This refined sitting room features vintage oil paintings, sepia photography, and one-of-a-kind accessories.

In the dining room, a refined built-in now stands in place of the rustic buffet. This redesigned feature offers generous serving space, flanked by cabinets showcasing softly arched doors that were painted.

With extensive updates, this kitchen was met with new appliances, refinished cabinetry, and Taj Mahal quartzite for the perimeter countertops (in place of dark granite).

A timeless gray and white striped flatwoven stair runner beautifully complements the wrought iron railing. The designer maximized this functional area by introducing a bespoke entryway cabinet.
