The linear profile of this modern house is unlike any other home on the street. The one-of-a-kind design combines the impeccable detailing and fine craftsmanship customary of David Bieker, president of Denali Custom Homes.
Located on the shore of Lake Minnetonka, the primary focus of the unusual exterior includes a 20-foot self-supporting roof span designed to provide unobstructed views of the lake; while the focus of the interior was to create a welcoming space ideal for entertaining family and friends. Interesting elements include a beautiful glass-walled wine cellar noticeable from the dining room and kitchen, a separate scullery room for doing dishes after the party ends, and a kitchen island with a live edge walnut countertop. The lower level provides ample space for when the kids visit over holiday vacation and summer break, and doubles as the perfect spot for the exercise room.
The great room’s 24-foot floor-to-ceiling retractable Marvin sliding door system provides an immediate connection to the outdoors (and since this is Minnesota, a retractable screen drops into place to combat mosquitoes). When the weather cooperates, the vast covered veranda allows for taking in the lake view while grilling or sitting beside a wood-burning fireplace.

Reminiscent of a mountaintop retreat in style and grandeur, this 9,332-square-foot, seven-bedroom, seven-bath home in Lake Elmo is a direct reflection of the family’s Colorado roots.
Not only does the home look like a modern mountain lodge from the outside; it also carries some of the “Out West” influences on the inside, such as the sliding interior barn doors for private work and study spaces, exposed knotty alder ceiling beams, and natural stone fireplaces. The bar, with seats from Mile High stadium, overlooks a sunken media area, and the “mini Fan” boys’ bedrooms with blue and orange wall stripes pay homage to the Denver Broncos.
The open, flowing floor plan boasts a gourmet kitchen with professional grade appliances and ample workspace, an expansive master suite and spa-like bath, and a great room bathed in sunlight that encourages quality family time. In the lower level, Mom and Dad can work out in the fitness area while checking in on the kids through a window to the multi-purpose sport court.
The backyard is as luxurious as the living spaces inside the home, complete with an in-ground pool, expansive patio, and outdoor fireplace creating the perfect outdoor oasis.
