5 Reasons to Make Our Dream Home (#232) A Destination on your Parade of Homes Tour

· Carbon 6 Interiors

The 2019 Fall Parade of Homes event begins September 7th and with five new custom-built Dream Homes competing for your attention, we want to make sure you have all the details you need to designate the Swanson Homes ‘Modern Mediterranean’ as a must-stop destination on your tour!

Influenced by Mediterranean-styled homes off the west coast, this stunning dream home showcases a blend of modern style with distinct design elements. Impressive in size (9,019 square feet to be exact) this five-bedroom, six-bathroom home in Medina, Minnesota has been an exciting build for our team. We want to share the top components of things we know you will be eager to see!

5 Reasons Our Dream Home is a “Must-See”
  1. Unique Decor Details That Will Delight and Surprise 
    Get ready to be inspired. This dream home showcases our owners’ unique personalities, lifestyle and cultured flair! A few fun details that stand out will definitely be the amazing variety of light fixtures in every room, you are sure to love the 60” European-influenced minimalism round chandelier inside the 10’ great room radius, as well as the unique Utopia Linear dining light designed by Kelly Wearstler. The children’s playroom entertains fun drum lights as well, along with an eye-catching city-scape wallpaper display by London Art. On the same floor, you will find a luxurious Owner’s Suite with a grand crystal chandelier in the bedroom and beautiful black and white marble floors in the bathroom. This professional pair of owners also built not one, but two full-sized “his and hers” offices. “His” office includes an overlook to the regulation-sized half basketball court, which leads us to our next dream home detail…
  2. A Regulation-Sized Half Court for a basketball Lover’s Paradise

    Athletes and sports lovers alike will appreciate the regulation-sized half-court, with real stadium court flooring. Just down the hall from the exercise room and sport court are a Timberwolves memorabilia case, a recreational entertainment media lounge featuring a ping pong table, and a spacious wet bar all accessible from two separate staircases.

  3. Dream Home Automations That Are SMART

    On your way to the court, you will discover a revolutionary workout machine, the Tonal. This all-in-one full-body equipment is combined with the technology for world-class personal training in the convenience of your own home. Definitely not the last time you’ll see this luxury piece! The Tonal workout machine isn’t the only innovative technology in this home. JJ Orion’s automation services have installed Google Home speakers throughout the home to create a house fit for the most tech-savvy. Hidden speakers in every room allow for voice control lighting, music, and a variety of other features powered by Google.

  4. Views that Bring the Good Natural Light

    When you first walk into this home you will be stunned by the natural light, large windows and expansive views. The main floor’s open concept allows for a full landscape view of the serene Deer Hill Preserve conservation land. Sunlight brightens up the distinct details of this home including the stunning Caesarstone Quartz waterfall edge countertop of the kitchen center island, and the rattan hanging-swing in the sunroom. More standout pieces of this floor are the custom-designed ceiling radius and chandelier which complement the large format-tiled fireplace featuring an 85” TV screen, creating a unique and modern space for entertaining.

  5. Charity Donations, supported by YOU

    Each time you visit a Dream Home, your $5 admission supports the BATC-Housing First Minnesota Foundation’s work as it builds and renovates transitional housing facilities for Minnesota’s homeless, veterans, and others in need. So not only will you walk away with a ton of new home inspiration ideas, but you’ve done a good deed for those in need!

Now that you have the scoop on what makes this home a dream home, join us during the Parade of Homes Tour and see it for yourself!
