Ruttger Road

Whitefish Lake, Minnesota

Designed originally as a RemWhirl spec house, this project is a two-story home with an eye on entertaining. Nestled unsuspectedly into the terrain, its curbside appeal is elegant yet modest while the lakeside face is clearly designed as the showstopper. It is tucked into the hillside and features full walk-out access that maintains a continuous space for entertaining, inside and out. The house is accompanied by a spacious boat house with rooftop patio. The site is built to be experienced as an extension of the lake, water and beachfront. Outdoor patios are complete with built in fireplaces, complimented by the sounds of cascading water from the wrap-around stream.
