We do at least find out that this distinctive build dates back to 1966, winning awards in its day and being featured in the US Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Has it changed much since then? We suspect not.

Decor and fittings aside, we’re not sure how you could change it. That facade towers up, hosting those huge panels of glass. Natural light certainly isn’t going to be a problem here. Window cleaning might though.

The drama continues inside the house, with double height ceilings and huge wood panelled walls. Yes, the decor might be a little ‘twee’ in places, but that’s something you can change relatively pain-free.

    HI! I live in a Stageberg-designed home close to downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota. It’s not terribly far from the one listed in Edina you are featuring in this post. What fun to see another home of his design! The soaring windows make his homes feel really special! Ours was built in 1964, so a few years older, but I am guessing it was in much worse condition than the Edina house when we purchased it almost a year ago…

    Our renovation began in January, and we have been working hard ever since! We hired a young architect to help us keep as much of the original character as possible, as well as give the house a fresh look. It has been a budget-busting emotional roller coaster, but I think we will end up with something pretty cool to call home! If anyone is interested in learning more about our project, come visit my blog “This Mod House”, which I try to update weekly. Here’s the link!
