Victorian Built 1906
This grand Victorian is a perfect example of blending the old with the new, but making the new look like it’s old. The home was in disrepair, but it had a great floor plan and tons of space for improvements. As other homes we’ve had on Tour, it features the 98-percent-efficient hydronic in-floor heating throughout — really the only way to go to heat a home of this size. In this whole-house renovation, all mechanicals (electrical, plumbing, and HVAC) were replaced, while wiring for sound, Internet, and a security system. We gutted the kitchen and created a gourmet space that could be the envy of a home on Lake Minnetonka. We created the master suite with vaulted ceilings, walk-in closet and full bathroom. The exterior has been renovated as well, with two decks, restored front porch and garage. Come see this gem for yourselves!
