This home has a Coastal Classic design with windows on each side of the door, with a large porch.  The informal stone around the porch gives this home a warm, welcoming, organic feel.

This Dutch Colonial has an additional gabled portico and if you look at the next photo, you can see that when standing in the front door area, you can look up and see a timeless light that peeks through the window above the front door.  The tall walls of stone with a hint of chocolate stained wood, make this home’s entrance very unique.


This home’s doorway is a classic look to the Edina Country Club District.  This home was a complete tear down and rebuild and during the design process we took into consideration the other homes on the street and within the entire neighborhood of 500 plus homes.  This home is one of our best projects, because you can drive up and down this street and not once think it is a brand new custom home.  Once you get closer and enter the home, it become obvious that this home new, fresh and inspiring, but from the street, it looks like the other homes in the classic historic neighborhood of Edina Country Club.
