Fountains, courtyards and gardens with 100-year-old vines. Curved ceilings, rounded walls and wrought iron details.

Such a home might be expected in the Tuscan countryside, but this one is on Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis.

Now the 7,000-square-foot house in the 2200 block of East Lake of the Isles Pkwy. is on the market.

Listing agentBruce Birkelandsaid the home is unique in more ways than one.

“It’s three-quarters of an acre which makes it one of the largest lots on the lake. I think it’s maybe only rivaled by only two others,” he said. “What’s also remarkable about this house is the romantic nature of the architecture and the grounds. You have these hidden gardens. A pool house. It’s walled in. It feels very authentic, European-Mediterranean.”
