133 feet of Lakeshore with the home very close to the water. The architectural style is a blend of transitional and Prairie School, with many interesting features. The lake view is superior in all 4 seasons; a blaze of color in the autumn, hushed in winter with heavy snows and hoarfrost. Built-in waterfalls recirculate lake water and send it shooting off the roof via scuppers into 2 koi ponds below which, in turn, overflow into runnels that carry the water back to the lake. Great place for parties and events; hot tub, area for lawn games or party canopies. Egrets and eagles nest close by (up stream) and fish often out the living room windows. Limestone cliffs border one side of the lake, making it secluded enough so the water is usually calm. The home is in a lazy quiet rivertown, but is only 15 minutes from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul. The interior of the home was designed for entertaining. It also has an attached studio. The floor plan is very open and has 2 3-sided fireplaces; one in the great room and one in the master suite. A stand alone guest suite has a private entrance and is handicapped accessible. The lower level has 2 bedrooms, its own kitchen, laundry, jack and jill bath and large open space for pool table, piano and sofas which provide additional sleeping area. As many as 12 people can be accomodated overnight in the whole home without sleeping bags. 2 huge, matching dining tables extend to seat 16 for formal dinner or conference. Other dining areas, both upstairs, and in the lower level seat more. Outside, there are tables, chairs to seat another 30 people easily. 4 canopies, with chaneliers provide shelter from sun or rain. Parties are never rained-out. Bonfires usually take place on a small beach area.
