Dip your feet in the waters of Lake Minnetonka in Tonka Bay and savor legendary sunsets from the deck of this warm and charming cottage-inspired home. Kroiss Development created a three-level retreat with stunning architecture by Charlie and Co. Design that was designed for family living and entertaining inside and out.

  • This lake home radiates warmth and openness, with amenities found throughout its 5,550 square feet. Electric outage from storms? Kroiss has thought of that, too, with a built-in generator system. Add more thoughtful details like a heated garage, paver driveway and beautiful landscaping and you have an equisite setting
  • A cottage feeling is reflected in its v-groove ceilings, custom beams, shiplap walls, beautifully crafted woodwork that continues throughout the main floor with a reclaimed timber mantle/wood burning fireplace.  A floating staircase adds to the feeling of airiness and open spaces
  • Cooks love gourmet kitchen appliances, and this kitchen has them, plus spacious storage in the pantry and butler’s pantry. The integrated refrigerator and pantry doors make for a seamless cabinet design. Everybody gathers in the kitchen, where the space flows to the breakfast nook and dining area
  • Enjoy resort amenities with an outdoor covered living area complete with A/V system, infrared heaters, Phantom screens and stone fireplace for those nights when you just can’t go inside. There’s an expansive paver terrace for cooking or lounging along with built-in grill system
  • When does a home office become a favorite room? When it’s spacious enough, has a lakeside balcony, paneled ceiling with beams and a rustic distressed wood floor.  And there’s also a lounge area on the upper level featuring a cozy day bed and built-in library area
  • Host a winetasting or select the right wine for every occasion and preference from the lower level’s complete wine cellar and adjoining bar. With reclaimed paneling and beams, windows for bottle viewing and a very unique Espavel bar top from Costa Rica, this space is sure to please everyone
  • Stay healthy and enjoy your own spa, with a steam shower in the master bath or relax in an oversize soaking tub with expansive views to the lake. Workouts are a regular routine when you have a roomy exercise room
    at home
  • The home is completely wired with the integrated Lutron Control System for A/V, thermostats, garage door operators, security system, Phantom screens, lighting and motorized window treatments
