Why Our Modern European Rambler is an “Award-Winning” Home
Recipient of the 2020 Reggie Award for $1.5 - $2 Million Category
This stunning and transitional Modern European home recently earned the coveted Reggie Award this year! This award is given to outstanding homes on Parade of Homes tour and is judged based on design, construction quality, and value.
Practical design and use of modern space were at the forefront of designing this rambler home. Perfectly suited for empty-nesters and families alike, here are the top reasons why we believe this home won the industry’s recognition.
Main Level Design Highlights
Crafting practical spaces with optimal functionality is just as important to us as it is to our clients. Our goal is to provide thoughtful and distinctive spaces to enjoy for years to come.
Our Modern European main-level floorplan incorporates methodically designed spaces that will flow with everyday routines.
-The owner’s suite & bath is attached to a custom walk-in closet that conveniently connects to the laundry room.
-Off the kitchen, the prep kitchen and pocket pantry are tucked away for easy access and the exceptional unseen storage space.
-The porch, just off the kitchen and dining area, is a serene space that provides an amazing amount of natural light. It also provides an additional access point to the outdoor deck.
-The third (flex) room on the main level could likely be used as an office or study, but allows for elasticity with future homeowner’s needs..

Lower Level Design Highlights
Building a "next level” lower level is all about creating a multi-purpose space to enhance your lifestyle. This lower level is set up perfectly for guests and entertaining with a large media space, pub-style bar, and spacious game area sized perfectly for a pool table. There are two additional bedrooms in the lower level, a full shared bath with spacious custom vanity, storage space, and a walk-in shower. Both bedrooms have full walk-in closets as well.
We have yet to meet a homeowner who doesn’t want more storage space at every opportunity, that’s why for this build we added a lower level garage. Whether you are storing your boat in the winter ( Lake Minnetonka is just a few minutes away), or additional tools for lawn care, bikes, sports care, etc, this extra space is a dream for any homeowner!

Warm Timeless Finishes & Custom Details
Building a stand-out, award-winning home always comes down to the details. The talented team at Carbon 6 Interiors, went all-out when it came to selecting finishes and features of the Modern European Rambler!
This stunningly warm transitional & modern rambler is detailed with white oak cabinetry, gold finishes, plenty of natural light. Cozy accents like the custom stonework on the fireplace and kitchen backsplash, distressed wood beams, and hardwood floors complement the modern details of black-framed windows, stunning lighting fixtures and Calico White Q-Quartz countertops.
Additional custom features we believe judges paid special attention to were the faux paint walls in the powder bath and ceiling details, paneled walls in the porch and third room (office), and the heated floor tiles in an Owner’s bath -- a luxurious addition for those cold Minnesota winters!

Last but not least...
The neighborhood and lot placement may not be on the judging criteria but we think it’s a standout highlight of this home. The Modern European Rambler is set perfectly in the Lakeview Orono neighborhood on Saint Andrews Street, a short distance from Lake Minnetonka with plenty of ponds, walking trails and green park spaces. In the backyard, you will find green trees and a small little creek with a bridge. This quiet and peaceful setting is perfect for any family looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

We are incredibly proud of our team and the hard work that went into this Reggie-winning rambler home. The practical use of the floorplan with distinct design elements contributed to this home to be recognized as one of the industry’s best new construction builds this Spring.
