Location: Minnetonka, Minnesota

Price: $1,100,000

Sitting three-quarters of an acre of private woodlands near Minnesota’s Lake Minnetonka, this striking modern home is the personal residence of noted American architect Charles R. Stinson. With strong horizontal lines and wraparound clerestory windows à la a Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie home, the 1993-built house is a prime example of what Stinson is known for: tranquil contemporary dwellings that harmonize with nature.

Coming in at 2,858 square feet, the four-bedroom house offers super well-lit open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area, which has direct access to the expansive deck overlooking the saltwater pool. Another bright family room to the side also includes a door to the deck. The lower level takes full advantage of the pool—one bedroom lets you roll right out of bed and into the water. As expected for an architect’s home, there’s a well-considered corner of the house dedicated to a drafting table. Additionally, the sale will include custom furniture seen throughout the house.
