Twin Cities Parade of Homes

THD is currently featured on the Artisan Home Tour, an elite, luxury home showcase offering visitors a peek into the best the Twin Cities has to offer. THD’s work is highlighted throughout every room in the home.

What is the Artisan Home Tour?

A ticketed, scattered-site tour of dozens of high-end Artisan Homes located across the Twin Cities. These luxurious residences have met the minimum standards for price and finish level to participate in the tour. New homes and newly remodeled homes are offered on the tour. Our interior design project, home #3 on Tonka Bay is featured on this year’s 10th annual Artisan Home Tour 2023.

About 4901 Manitou Road

This description of home #3 is from

  • “Clean lines throughout the home offer the modern aesthetic the homeowners wanted to achieve, while dark, rich colors and textures add warmth. 
  • Wall-to-wall floor-to-ceiling windows on both levels create unobstructed sight lines of Lake Minnetonka. 
  • The living room seamlessly flows into the dining area and kitchen, highlighting an open floor plan conducive to hosting. 
  • Cambria countertops and fireplace surrounds throughout the home not only look luxurious but are durable and easy to maintain. 
  • Convenience is on full display in the lake room, a main-level space outfitted with a banquette and shower for the homeowners and their guests to rinse off between swimming in the lake and spending time in the sauna.    
  • In the primary suite, an ensuite bathroom — with his-and-hers vanities and a freestanding tub — acts as a divider between the bedroom and expansive walk-in closet. But the most impressive feature is the private deck that gives the homeowners a quiet spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine. 
  • Heated floors across the main level, primary bath, and three-car garage are a must for Minnesota’s cold winters.   
  • On the porch, retractable Phantom Screens and an outdoor kitchen — complete with a grill — maximize al fresco dining and entertainment opportunities. 
  • An office, home gym, and kids’ bonus room above the garage round out living spaces for work and play.”
