Arts & Crafts Lake Home
Lake Waconia, Minnesota
When the homeowners’ decided to build on this property, they wanted minimal disturbance to the heavily wooded site. The house, designed by Studio Hittle, was placed on the edge of a high bluff, taking advantage of spectacular views of Lake Waconia and Coney Island. To fit the narrow lot, the house and garage were configured into an “L” shape, with a small courtyard anchored with a massive two-story stone turret.

A large deck off the main level is skewed and cantilevered over the bluff to allow for a well-lit sitting terrace below. A serpentine stairway crawls down the bluff to the lakeshore. The site is totally naturalized with native plantings.
