Minnesota Private Residence

Perched on wooded hilltop, this historical estate home was thoughtfully restored and expanded, addressing the modern needs of a large family and incorporating the unique style of its owners. The design is teeming with custom details including a porte cochère and fox head rain spouts, providing references to the historical narrative of the site’s long history.

We apologize that you are disappointed in our response. We are the architects that designed the overall project and we are always willing to share information we have in our records, but we did not know this information, and therefore provided the resource of the interior designer. We are always hopeful that they share information on their projects as well.

The French doors are from Marvin. They offer the single bottom raised panel as an option available when ordering the doors.

Looks like a black wood. Painted maybe. Looked at a similar one and it was almost a lacquer finish on plank wood.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Your wall color can help enhance your piping. This off-white piping, for instance, feels amplified against walls of a similar shade.
