Built by one of my favorite builders in Minnesota, Hendel Homes, this home is a mix of French sophistication and rustic modern. The lake house embraces the French architecture on the exterior with roof lines, limestone sills, metal window details, and clean stucco. The front showcases wood trellises and garage doors and a paved driveway. Around back there is a beautiful entertaining area with a fountain, built-in grill, fireplace, and multiple seating areas. The main level has the all the amenities for one-level living, including the master suite. In the lower level there are 2 more bedrooms, a craft room, another kitchen and greatroom, for guests to have their own private space. This home is in an amazing community called Locust Hills with dock slips on Lake Minnetonka and a pool club house.

Hi, my friends!
How are you feeling today? It was a very busy day around here… between business meetings and volunteering at my kids’ school, I surely feel that I had a very productive day! My son’s class went to an orchard today and it was wonderful. I can’t believe the day we had after the scary storm we had yesterday. It was sunny and we could pick many apples, which really surprised me. I guess we’ll be baking some apple pies over the weekend. Yum!!! 🙂
I hope that everything is good with you… may you feel healthy, healed and at peace.
Have a Blessed day, everyone. We’ll talk again tomorrow.
