Remodelers Showcase Dream Homes
Friday-Sunday | 12-6 p.m. | October 1-3, 2021
Fox Homes, LLC
6704 Point Drive, Edina MN
This 1950s lake home went through a large renovation in the 1980s and is now completely reimagined in 2021! The living area ceilings were all vaulted — soaring to 16 feet. The back of the home is now nearly all glass to capture the panoramic lake views, and the forgotten pool was totally revived. The previous home had one bedroom on the 3,500-square-foot main level, which didn’t work for this family of four. The homeowners went with an eclectic vibe throughout the home with an artisan brass hood vent, custom wood cabinets and doors, a free-floating staircase, and a custom Malm fireplace.

The great room features a fireplace with a limestone surround and whitewashed brick. The owner’s suite is a relaxing retreat with marble floors, shiplap walls, white oak cabinetry, and a large walk-in closet. The upper level opens to a cozy loft, which is perfect for movie nights and slumber parties. The lower level is full of entertainment which includes a full bar, lounge area, fireplace, exercise room, and guest bedroom and bathroom.
