Artisan Home No. 9

ADŌR – Bespoke Homes Builder

2290 Melody Hill Road, Excelsior, MN | 612-590-8099 | MN Lic #BC761771

During the building process of this 3,650-square-foot home in Excelsior, the clients’ goal wasn’t to be trendy, but to ensure that every detail had a purpose and fit with the overall design of the house. The result is a thoughtfully crafted new build that radiates a transitional, classic-meets-contemporary interior style from top to bottom.

  • On the exterior, clean white siding, black window and door trim, and front porch columns evoke a modern farmhouse aesthetic.
  • In the gathering room, the fireplace anchors the space and sets the tone for the rest of the house, featuring a linear fireplace with custom steel paneling, Venetian plaster, natural stone, and one-of-a-kind floating shelves.
  • High-quality materials and furnishings are on display in the kitchen, where Cambria countertops complement top-of-the-line Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Cove appliances, including an additional oven hidden in the pantry for easy food prep.
  • The main-floor bar was made on site to allow the entire grain of white oak to flow floor to ceiling with no seaming of stiles and rails. A second bar on the lower level is adorned with unique custom details, from the wall treatments to the shelving.
  • A main-floor primary suite—complete with custom nightstands and an L-shaped walk-in closet—creates one-level living for the homeowners to age in place. In the primary bath, a dual vanity, relaxing soaking tub, and shower with bench seating create a spa-like experience.
  • An additional three bedrooms on the lower level welcome visiting friends and family.
  • The cordless home office will impress even the most tech-savvy homeowner and is finished with custom black metal and glass paneling and door.
  • The spacious three-car garage leads to a mudroom outfitted with solid oak doors alongside tongue-and-groove, rift-cut white oak paneling. An adjoining laundry room can instantly capture wet, snowy clothing, making for a seamless, mess-free transition from outside to inside.
