Nestled on the beautiful shores of Robinson’s Bay on Lake Minnetonka, this traditional home is rooted in the classic Deephaven lake cottage style.
A major renovation resulted in a complete transformation of all interior and exterior spaces, while retaining the original footprint and foundation of the home. A team of artisans crafted the richly detailed arched walnut beams of the great room, the new pine paneled study, and the reclaimed timber ceiling of the romantic “Cabin” above the garage.
Designed by Murphy & Co. Design, this traditional home has approx. 5500 square feet of timeless architectural details and inspiring elegance.
UPDATE: I will not be able to post tomorrow (Thursday), but I will be back with a new “Interior Design Ideas” on Friday. Thank you, guys!
The garage colonnades are approx 13″ wide x 8′ high.
The beautiful main entrance features curved shingles and multi-radiused stone arch.
The stone is a fon-du-lac country squire flagstone.
This is a custom designed front door designed specifically for the homeowner.
An expansive view of the entryway, hearth room and kitchen from the great room.

View from Above
The Great Room is approx. 22′ long by 17′ wide x 21′ high.
The butler’s pantry is spacious and has a wine fridge.
Dimensions: Approx. 8′ deep x 5′ wide.
This looks very clean and inviting. I like how the white cabinets are broken up by the center Island in the dark stain finish and the counter top and backsplash are a darker color. This is a good option for those who don’t like an all-white kitchen.
The cabinets have a lot of architectural detail to them especially above the sink area.
The glass cabinets are used to separate the kitchen from the dining room.
Island Dimensions: Approx. 9′ x 3′-6″.
Floors are walnut.
The custom cabinet doors feature antique glass.
The cabinetry houses unique glassware and dinnerware of the owner, and on the far back portion is the double ovens.
Inspiring corbel details.
The hearth room has beamed ceilings and hidden TV on automatic lift.
Home Office – Hers
This space is 7’6″ wide and 5’0″ deep and I love every inch of it! It’s practical and well-designed!
Home Office – His
This study has knotty pine paneling, coffered ceiling and a private balcony.
Table alcove in powder hall. This house has inspiring details everywhere you look!
Simple, yet elegant.
The master bedroom feels cozy and very comfortable, thanks to its carpet flooring and the bed alcove with fabric lined surround.
Bedroom Sitting Area
The separate master sitting room features window-seat and custom bookcase window surround.
The master bathroom has lovely views of the water and gazebo.
This is such an elegant closet! You feel the quality of this space.
Closet Dimensions: Approx. 12′-4″ x 17′-6″ (approx. 214 s.f.).
The light fixture is a Acharn Pendant with water glass, from Hubbardton Forge.
This cabin-inspired “man cave” is located above the garage and has reclaimed timber beams and board & batten walls.
The architectural brackets were custom designed, structurally reinforced, and installed by a local contractor.
Shingles are cedar shakes and the stones are Fon-du-lac.
Detail view of master bath curved roofline.
The stunning rear facade with stone terrace and hot tub.
The peace many of us find only when we’re by the water.
