Artisan Home No. 12

City Homes, LLC Builder

5221 Halifax Avenue S., Edina, Minnesota | 612-217-2853 | MN Lic #BC673138

Rustic meets modern in this five-bedroom, six-bathroom home within walking distance to Edina’s 50th and France shopping district. 

The style and design of the home begin with the exterior, where a modern farmhouse aesthetic is brought to life through rustic woods, smooth ivory brick, and handmade textural black brick that makes up the facade of the two-story chimney. 

Solid oak doors framed by custom oak trim and a transom above separate the foyer and office — featuring soft green paint, natural woods, and white metal pocket doors — from the rest of the main living spaces that share an open-concept floor plan.  

On the locally made staircase, each tread was designed to look like a solid reclaimed beam. White metals through the handrail and spindles match other design accents throughout the main level.  

In the great room, the fireplace is the focal point, complete with a custom, hand-carved mantle and a hearth seat by Orijin Stone. 

Since the homeowner is a pastry chef, a gourmet kitchen was a must. In addition to the main kitchen with high-end appliances and natural materials, a scullery and side pantry offer more prep space and storage.

Bi-fold doors galore! Floor-to-ceiling accordion-style doors line the back of the home, including one three-panel and two five-panel Marvin bi-fold doors. 

Step out to the patio and porch — complete with vaulted ceilings made of Montana timber and Phantom Screens with motorized retractable vinyl panels — before heading to the outdoor athletic court. 

The vaulted-ceiling primary bedroom gives way to his-and-hers closets, and an ensuite bathroom finished with a cobblestone floor from France — inspired by the historic streets of Paris — handmade ceramic sconces, natural cast bronze hardware, and custom white metal shower doors. 

Don’t miss the smart home features, including motorized window shades and the programmable lighting system.

A media room, game area, wet bar, and home gym on the lower level give the active family of four room for entertainment and recreation.
