While considering the needs and wants of homeowners, a skilled architect will often reflect on the surrounding landscape to acquire direction for the style of the home. So it is only natural that the farmland surrounding, and within, Lake Elmo, Minnesota, city limits would lend itself to the construction of a farmhouse with a large, open porch and elegant lines.
While the home itself is of new construction, it certainly looks as though it has been there for decades. Its vintage appeal comes from its Greek Revival design featuring a classic, white exterior and welcoming, covered porch. The interior is equally impressive as rows of large windows fill each room with streams of natural light. Richly-stained hardwood floors and detailed woodwork create depth and custom detailing throughout the home. The kitchen is especially memorable with its palatial wood-topped island and Shaker-style cabinetry. Vintage-inspired pendants add glamour and provide task lighting to the kitchen's various work surfaces.
