Beautiful hillside home offers sweeping views over Lake Minnetonka

This contemporary home was completed by  in collaboration with , nestled hillside in Locust Hills, a private estate in Wayzata, Minnesota. Surrounded by woods and walking trails, the residence overlooks wetlands, a lagoon and Lake Minnetonka. The design of this three-story home blends historic architectural references with a sleek minimalistic aesthetic. The dwelling consists of three individual pavilions which are intermingled by interior and exterior bridges.

On the interiors, an open plan living room, dining room and kitchen flow harmoniously from one space to the next, illuminated by natural light through expansive windows. The beautiful flooring consists of rift and quarter saw white oak, which travels through most of the main living spaces. French doors in the living room opens out onto a spacious terrace with views out to the lake. A spiral staircase provides easy access to the ground floor level and out onto the backyard.

What We Love: This stunning hillside home offers a lovely neutral color palette that is very soothing to the eye. A simple yet elegant styling throughout helps to focus more on the views surrounding the home. The open layout creates a harmonious flow, perfect for family living and entertaining… Readers, please share with us what details in this home that caught your eye and why in the Comments below.
