Tucked amidst coniferous trees in Golden Valley, MN, this outdoor living space is thoughtfully constructed, inside and out. The cozy screen room, NY Bluestone patio, and landscaped yard are fully integrated with the home’s main floor via a retractable Phantom screen and a 12 foot wide Marvin bi-fold door. With screen and door open, all three spaces become one - inviting the outside in on coveted summer days. Flush floor transitions respect universal design principles by ensuring contiguous wheel-chair access to all spaces. A hand-carved, lotus fountain (made by local artist Steve Hemmingway) offers a constant, tranquil murmur inviting relaxation at day's end. This stunning space is high function outdoor refinement at its best.
