The result of a collaboration by architect James McNeal and stone mason Luke Busker, this custom stone residence combines old-world design with modern amenities. The 10,298 square foot residence is on the market for $7.5 million in Orono, Minnesota. Architect James McNeal told StarTribune, “It’s a glass box inside a stone house. I was trying to play with the modern feel of a glass home with an open plan and lots of light. From the outside, you might think it would be dark and gloomy.” McNeal also revealed that the interiors drew inspiration from the Game of Thrones and include steampunk features including a steel door operated by a pulley and hand crank that reveals a concealed television in the living room. Listing details: Introducing “Huntington Manor” located in the coveted Orono countryside. A design-build collaboration between famed architect James McNeal and luxury home builder Luke Busker.
