Tuscany in Kenwood

Kenwood is one of the super-premium neighborhoods in Minneapolis.  Kenwood is a gingerbread dollhouse-encrusted hill perched just southeast of downtown Minneapolis.  Back in 1995, I looked at a carriage house apartment behind a 5000 square-foot mansion that would have been the nicest place I had ever lived – and it was above a garage.  Given […]

A Room with a View

I love when a house has a unique surprise – something that makes me drop what I’m doing because I’m dying to see what it has to offer.  This house in Lake St. Croix, MN has that wonderful screen porch on the garage reachable by a skyway from the main house.  Why?  So you can […]

Keep the Home Fires Burning

There is nothing that makes a property look more majestic than doing a dusk shot.  There is something about the illumination of the property, the glow of the windows, and the deep blues of the sky that transforms any property into a stately manor.  It it significantly more effort than doing a drive-by shot during […]

Ephraim Sanctuary

Since I did a big house for the last post, I’m going to the other side and posting about a very small house.  This is Log Cabin Place in Ephraim, WI which I shot over Labor Day weekend last year.  This cottage was recently remodeled and had just been reopened for visitors.  The owner, Diane, […]
