A European inspired estate designed by Murphy and Co. and masterfully built by John Kraemer and Sons in 2013 in Eden Prairie, Minnesota has been reduced to $5.75 million. The 12,558 square foot residence sits on a 4.7 acre estate complete with ski hill and tow rope! “With idyllic views of the Minnesota River valley, this new home commands elevated views seldom seen in the Minneapolis suburbs. The site is long and steep (including its own ski hill and tow rope), with much effort being placed on proper siting. To maximize the views, we designed a curving floor plan and large expanses of glass facing the valley, with a more subtle entry facade. A rooftop terrace with fireplace accessed via ships ladder is a favourite destination for viewing the breathtaking sunsets.” – Murphy & Co Distinctive Residential Architecture. The home is located in the relatively small suburb of Eden Prairie, about 40 minutes from Minneapolis. Architects Murphy & Co worked with builders John Kraemer & Sons, landscape architects Topo LLC and interior decorator Manor House Interiors to create a truly world class estate. Sometime after construction of the main house, Murphy & Co, John Kraemer & Sons and Topo LLC revisited the site to construct a charming river hut built into a hill on the property.
“Nestled into a hill amongst a forested estate along the Minnesota River valley lies this secluded hut. Our repeat client, an avid outdoorsmen and adventurist, asked that we design a space for him to enjoy some of his hobbies. The structure would also serve as a space to park his UTV and snowmobiles. The twin, open-swing carriage door entry is tucked discreetly into the hill below the owner’s home above. The hut is met by a gravel approach ascending from the river, which is located next to the owner’s private ski hill with tow rope. The workroom has interior walls of refined knotty timber boards giving the hut a rustic yet sophisticated feel. A wall-to-wall waxed wood workbench was designed to hold tools and power equipment.” Professional photography by Landmark Photography and Alyssa Lee. The property is on the market for $5.75 million with Ryan Platzke of Coldwell Banker.
