Kenwood Queen Anne
This family dreamed of owning a Queen Anne Victorian home. But this Kenwood gem, built in 1892, wasn’t exactly the perfect fit for a modern family with three children. The rooms were tiny. There was little storage. And the word “functionality” wasn’t in the original design vocabulary. They wanted a home that could accommodate a modern lifestyle without undermining the home’s original architectural integrity.
Arts & Crafts Kitchen
Before our the owners of this home moved from New York City to the Twin Cities, they spent five months searching for a home. They looked at new condominiums and houses, hoping to find the modern amenities they had grown so accustomed to in New York. Yet when they first stepped foot into a Lowry Hill Arts and Crafts home, built in 1907, they were instantly enamored with its old-world charm. The home, however, had one big problem: a 1980s kitchen that was a blemish on the historic beauty of the home.
