This home is modern, but combines features and design drawn from the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century. There's a three-sided, floor-to-ceiling fireplace, a granite fountain in the atrium, skylights and oversized windows, the better to take advantage of views out onto the garden on the half-acre lot.

This is a large house with a walk-in kitchen pantry, laundry room, hobby room and wine cellar. The whole package overlooks the tree-lined 14th fairway of Olympic Hills Golf Course, and is only about 18 miles from downtown Minneapolis. The $100,000 taken off this home's price makes it even more attractive.
