Nestled in the burg of Grand Marais is The House of Light. Near to all the enjoyment of America's Coolest Small town, yet private with its own peaceful courtyard set within charming landscaping of stone, flowers, ornamental trees and shrubs. An architectural gem, this small footprint home embodies the best qualities of the movement to do more with less. The floor-plan and design optimize the space, providing all that is needed at a scale that is simultaneously practical and uplifting. The emphasis is on highest quality materials, built-ins, design, embellishment, and flow rather than wasted space for dust bunnies. Built by renown local builder Greg Tofte, his crew poured their talents into each step creating gently vaulted ceilings, clear white pine paneling, tile mosaics, bump-outs and rooflines pleasing to the eye. This is life within a piece of artwork. The exterior is all cedar: shakes on the roof, blue solid color stain on the siding, perfect in this Scandinavian setting. There is a stone wall for the ages of indigenous basalt in many hues and shapes. Quaint fencing is out of our Arts & Crafts past, deck and patio to soak in the cool air of Superior. Tuck back inside where much of the furnishing manifests in Steve Asche built-ins: THE local cabinet and finish carpenter wizard! Throughout, are corner windows spilling in sunshine. The bump-outs open the home expanding space and your mind. The bathroom is quality and attention to detail throughout, with blues and wood tones harmoniously wedded. The effect is comfort, clean, and ease. The practicality of the design influences the physical plant as well. Two boilers offer a reduced rate for dual fuel, a gas fireplace allows for ambience and a quick heat-up if necessary. The crawlspace is dry, only accessed from the inside and neat as a pin. Single car garage is handy, boasting its own corner windows! Fiber optic speeds and wifi controlled thermostat. Were you planning to buy a place you could rent to defer ownership costs? That works here. Or keep it all for you and yours. Thought you needed lakeshore? Here's the alternative: House of Light!
