The Lake Chelan Community Hospital “Guild B” presents their annual and ever popular Lake Chelan Home Tour and Art Show this Saturday, Sep. 16, 2017. The 2017 Home Tour will feature tours of four distinct homes in the valley.

The second home to be featured on the Lake Chelan Home Tour is Historic Treasure, owned by Dan and Dian Prentice. This historic home located at Minneapolis Beach on the South Shore of Lake Chelan was built in 1930 and bought by the current owners 20 years ago as a summer home. They have lived here full time since 2002. Throughout the house, look for the original art created for the home by architect/designer Milan Heger, and fine interior finishes by Lukas Prochazka who remodeled the home.

The spacious, open-plan great room faces Lake Chelan, with a wall of windows looking out to the spectacular view. One end of the room is a seating area with fireplace and a high mantelpiece. The other is the dining area with a table for eight to ten and a six-feet long antique bench with spindle back. A gracious deck with comfortable chairs is the perfect spot to watch a sunset over the lake.

The kitchen, separated from the dining room by a half-wall counter, is modern with a commercial gas stove, farm sink, white cabinets, and a backsplash of white subway tile. The “theater room” has built-in sound speakers, artwork by Heger, and a glass door leading to the side yard.

The atmosphere throughout this beautifully remodeled home is one of rustic elegance. Each room displays a sure sense of style and fine design. With its beautiful lakeside setting, the home is indeed an historic treasure.
