The Eye-land

Stillwater, Minnesota

Situated among rolling hills, gentle valleys and quiet ponds, the Eye-land home is the first completed project in the new White Oaks Savanna™ development in Stillwater, Minnesota. The development is a beautiful residential community carefully developed in collaboration with the City of Grant, Brown's Creek Watershed District and Washington County overlooking 200+ acres of nature.

Nicknamed Eye-land” for the expansive savanna views, this beautiful 5,200-sq.-ft. custom family home was completed in September 2020. The house features a mix of casement windows, fixed windows and hinged patio doors in black interior and exterior color – complementing the moody, dark exterior of the home and adding contrast to the bright white interior.

At the front of the house, two Watercolor Blue windows, from the E-Series palette library, offer additional visual interest and warm contrast against the dark reimagined shiplap look.

"The blue accent E-Series windows at the front of the Eye-land home were an important component of its design. Utilizing strategic pops of color enabled us to play with the home's scale and create a unique, one-of-a-kind look," said Chris Strom, principal architect and founder of Christopher Strom Architects. "Given the home's location on the street, the garage was the first thing you see when arriving. The large 4.5' by 7' window at the front enabled us to downplay the size of the garage and refocus on the home, playing with proportions to make the garage gables seem smaller in relation to the rest of the home."
