From the firm that brought us a dreamy Scandinavian-inspired Minnesota lake home comes another Midwest modern stunner. Designed by Strand Design, this Minneapolis residence is envisioned as a modern ranch, blending the pool-and-cabana style of West Coast ramblers with warm, natural materials fit for the northern climate and woodland surroundings.

Covering 4,500 square feet, the hillside Theodore Wirth Ranch indulges in high-ceilinged, open-plan living spaces ideal for entertaining, with wall-to-wall views of the retreat-worthy setting. The interior material palette includes clear timber, sandstone, marble, cork, concrete, and steel, all highlighted against white walls and ceilings.

Outside, the 10-meter swimming pool comes with a pool house, which includes a sauna, plus an outdoor kitchen and dining area. A cantilevered roof over the main living spaces adds drama and some sun defense in the summer.
