It’s evident when looking at the attention to detail in this European cottage-style home on Lake Minnetonka’s Gray’s Bay that builder Sven Gustafson learned from the best. His family has been building homes since 1920. For over 13 years, Sven has carried on the family tradition.
Sven’s signature architectural details can be seen in the intricate wood trim on baseboards and crown moldings, framing the entrances, and outfitting the staircase. In addition to historically accurate details creating an ‘Old World’ fairy tale feel, the colossal six-bedroom home features a boat house, 11,000-square feet of living space, a Romeo-and-Juliet balcony/sitting room overlooking the lofty two-story great room, and multi-part doors and phantom screens providing indoor-outdoor connections.
An airy lower level mudroom leads to a fitness room, expansive bar beside an informal theater, and not one but two stone wine cellars featuring beautiful stained glass doors. A secret lower level loft in the spare bedroom is not only a brilliantly creative use of space, but the perfect spot for kids to curl up with a good book.
