Artisan Home No. 5

Wooddale Builders, Inc. Builder

160 Lakeview Lane, Wayzata, Minnesota | 952-345-0543 | MN Lic #BC002926

Created in partnership with Swan Architecture and Katie Bassett Interiors, this one-of-a-kind home is nestled in the heart of Wayzata, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and Lake Minnetonka. 

Vista Lago, translated from Italian, means “Lake View,” which is the name of the street where this stunning new build resides. The design team chose this because the homeowners sought a modern Mediterranean spirit for their dream home, where balanced strokes of contrasts — through color, edges, and proportion — all matter. 

Simple, staunch, and stoic, this home’s exterior offers balanced symmetry for the main body of the house and welcomes guests through the formal spiring entryway.  

The elegant natural white stucco veneer is punctuated with tall, narrow, black casement windows and doors, and the glossy black Italian clay roof tile shines above like a tiara.

Inside, the hand-framed curved staircase is reminiscent of an old Hollywood movie. 

A sculpted, groin-vaulted hallway provides an architectural connection between the various public spaces of the main level, including the formal office, kitchen, living room, powder room, and mudroom.

The main living room features a fireplace surround handcrafted by Orijin Stone – a true work of art that can’t be missed. 

Off the primary living area, discover a three-season porch with a wood-burning fireplace and tempered screening to extend the season.

The lower level hosts a glamorous bar overlooking a movie-watching area, plus spaces for fitness and perfecting one’s golf swing.
