A stunning urban farmhouse gets a dose of universal design in Minnesota


modern-urban-farmhouse-exterior

Designed and built by Trestle Homes with interiors by InUnison Design, this lovely modern urban farmhouse is located in the Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The design of this home places emphasis on universal design or what the builder likes to call a “lifetime-friendly” design. The builder thinks it is important to think about the future when constructing your home. It is more cost-efficient to build in accessibility from the beginning instead of retrofitting later for aging in place.

Encompassing 4,353 square feet of living space, this dwelling boasts four bedrooms and three bathrooms, ¾ bathroom, and a powder room. Highlights conclude an open and airy floor plan with an abundance of natural light, a spacious kitchen and pantry with high-end appliances, an expansive front porch, and back deck, and a fantastic upper level with a bath for each bedroom, a 3-floor elevator, two mudrooms, personal office, exercise room, extensive custom cabinetry, and built-ins throughout.

What We Love: This upscale urban farmhouse boasts stylish and modern living spaces that are subtly packed with accessible design features throughout. A crisp black and white palette with pops of color provides an attractive aesthetic while also helping those who are visually impaired. We are especially fond the exterior facade of this home, it’s warm and inviting with a large deck for entertaining family and friends.

The interiors feature a black and white palette with pops of color, on-trend but also helpful for those who are vision impaired and need to navigate where one surface ends and the other begins. Large turning radiuses can be found throughout this home where a wheelchair would need to pivot.
