The latest custom Kootenia design is underway in the highly accredited suburb of North Oaks! Located in the prestigious Rapp Farm neighborhood, this home is situated on a fabulous home site with pond views and lots of open space. Built for a family of 5, this two-story will include 5 bedrooms (4 on the upper level), 5 bathrooms, an open concept main level with Chefs Kitchen, Great Room, Screen Porch and finished lower level with basketball court.
As with all Kootenia homes, the exterior of this home is composed of the highest quality materials, designed to protect your home from all of Minnesota’s varying climates. We use Tyvek HomeWrap, which helps prevent the infiltration of water and air into your home while simultaneously allowing water vapor to escape. This unique material improves a home’s durability and helps protect it against rain and damaging winds. By controlling water intrusion and the flow of air, Tyvek HouseWrap increases energy efficiency and can reduce your home energy bill. Kootenia also uses James Hardie siding. This type of siding is specifically engineered for climate and categorized by the region in which you live. James Hardie understands the long-term effects that different climates can have on siding and produce products that are made to withstand those climates. This home will contain HardiePlank Lap Siding and is designed to resist wet and freezing conditions. The exterior of the home also has stone, a 3-car garage, cement driveway and covered front entry.
The main level of this gorgeous family home has a welcoming foyer with wood flooring, private study, formal dining area, Great Room with wall of Pella Encompass windows, reclaimed wood beam ceiling, gas fireplace with stone front, spot for tv above, and built-in cabinetry. The Gourmet Kitchen has a beautiful center island with seating, massive refrigerator, double ovens, 36” cooktop with range hood, tiled backsplash, and walk-in pantry. This space also has an informal dining area, a perfect place for doing school work or quick meals on busy nights. Past the Kitchen is a beautiful Sunroom with a cased opening and wood flooring. The Sunroom leads out to a Screen Porch connected to a Deck. The Screen Porch has an impressive vaulted bead board ceiling. The main level is rounded out with a large mudroom that has luxury vinyl tile flooring, built-in cubbies with bench, walk-in coat closet, and powder room.
