Luxury Home Tour Spotlight: Ridge Creek Custom Homes

This self-guided tour runs three weekends in June: June 6-8, 13-15, and 20-22 and showcases the work of the area’s most sought-after custom builders. The tour is perfect for those who admires architecture and fine craftmanship, those with champagne wishes and caviar dreams, those who are looking for unique ideas to incorporate into their own home, and those interested in hiring a custom builder to create their very own dream home.

Every week through the end of the tour, we will feature one or more of the 14 luxury homes on this blog, so be sure to check back for the full lineup.

Home #11

4200 Alden Drive, Edina, MN 55416

Ridge Creek Custom Homes and designer Sarah Randolph have collaborated on some spectacular homes during their years working together, and this Edina home—currently on the market—is no exception.

Once in the front door, natural sunlight floods the space. A fireplace serves as the focal point and a medallion design adds character to the dining room ceiling.

In the kitchen, a farmhouse sink and hand-scraped hickory flooring give the home a little bit of rustic flavor, while granite countertops create a clean, modern look.

It’s obvious that the builder, Ridge Creek Custom Homes, paid special attention to the layout of this home, with the living room, office, dining room, three season porch with a stone fireplace, and entertaining areas—including a main floor wet bar—on one level and the family quarters upstairs.

A fifth bedroom shares space with a media center and man cave on the lower level, leading out to the three-car tuck-under garage.

When the weather warms up, the party can move to the U-shaped outdoor kitchen. This space goes beyond the standard barbeque set-up, with a high-end gas grill, tin roof, tons of prep space, and outdoor speakers. Everything you need for preparing the perfect al fresco meal is right at your fingertips.

Perhaps one of the biggest attractions of this beautiful home is its location in the charming village-within-a-city Morningside neighborhood of Edina, close to quaint cafes and boutique shopping in Linden Hills and only blocks from the Lakes. • 612-250-5820
