These high style home owners wanted to effortlessly erase the 90’s architecture and design elements from this estate home in the prestigious neighborhood of Bearspath in Eden Prairie Minnesota and add airy contemporary style rooted in tradition with bohemian insights lightly layered throughout. WEST BAY HOMES did just that, creating a peaceful palette that feels fantastically fresh and functional, for this beautifully reimagined family home. Enter the foyer and be dazzled by the epic ceiling height clad in shiplap, a fabulous installation, and the white oak wide plank wire brushed wood floors that look like they have been salvaged from a chic Parisian apartment. New millwork including large simple baseboards throughout, charming wall trim designs, and stately pass through entrance casing enhance the newly renovated spaces. A curated collection of 5 meticulously placed Emtek door handle sets and hinges give life to freshly painted doors. New light fixtures throughout add bold interest and polish. Out with the old dingy wallpaper in the study, and in with the new textured glass cloth ceiling paper and rich warm black wainscoting and crisp white walls. The new stair case is an elegant combination of contemporary and traditional elements finished with a charcoal and cream herringbone pattern wool runner. The kitchen was completely reconfigured into an all white kitchen with sleek wood paneled freezer and refrigerator columns that mimic the walk-in pantry door. The delightful walk in pantry reveals shiplap sheathed walls and rows of gleaming unlacquered brass brackets and white shelves. Wide plank shiplap backsplash is bright white, large dappled white porcelain farmhouse sink add loveliness. Large custom center island topped with classic Carara marble houses microwave drawer and loads of storage. A brilliant collection of brass cup pulls and appliance pulls stand harmonious with modern glass and brass island pendant lights. The mudroom boasts elongated tiles set in a herringbone pattern, custom cabinetry allowing a place for everything with internal rows of brass hooks and outlets for charging tablets and phones. Walls were removed, fireplaces were completely revamped, bathrooms were revitalized entirely. The lower level delights in a library lounge area complete with a rolling ladder and large organizational pin board serving multifunctional family life and activities. The laundry room was relocated completely and is now a lavish retreat. Yes, you read that right, the laundry room is truly a lavish retreat. This home revitalization project was an absolute joy to produce with the lovely homeowners! The before and afters are dramatic… grab a pencil, it's so good you'll want to take some notes.
