French provincial in North Oaks

This is one of the most spectacular homes we have had the pleasure of building. Set deep in the forest of North Oaks, this home has the presence of an estate that has been there for 100 years. Over 10,000 sq. ft., 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms… The office on the main floor is truly amazing! 3 TV’s that retrace into cabinetry and behind artwork, it is the ultimate man cave. Over 500 sq feet, access to a cigar balcony huge wood burning fireplace, bar, secret staircase to the master bedroom and down to the entertainment room… More to follow….

Ceiling detail abounds in this French, Orono lake home

The 5th, often forgotten wall, the ceiling is often the key to making a room feel complete and cohesive in design. This concept was well understood by our client. They had recently moved back to Minnesota from a few years living in Paris. High ceilings, tall multi-part crown, beams, applied moldings were critical elements of their home’s design.
