The day of the party this house was full of people from every age group, it is a family house, there is room for everyone, it has a big open floor plan, nothing pretentious, everything organic and natural. It is a wide L shape house and the bedrooms are at separate ends both upstairs and downstairs. There are no formal rooms, this is a lake house after all.
If I lived here, this is where you would find me, all of the time!
This is the only picture in which I could capture the front of the house in all its glory. The entire house has a Arts and Crafts feel with the cabinetry and doors leaning toward the Mission Style
This is the most complete picture of the rear of the home that I could capture.
At the rear of the house is this upstairs porch with iron spindles and wood posts. As you can see the lower level deck is currently having its railings installed.
Isn't this roof line and the use of the wood and stone materials just stunning.
Ready to go inside?
This is the living room looking back at the front door. There is an abundance of windows, a 20' ceiling, a massive fireplace, and the windows on the opposite side look directly onto the lake. You can see a glimpse of the loft upstairs.
The heart of the home is always the kitchen and this one has everything and more. All of the cabinetry in the entire home was custom made by Stauffer Custom Kitchens and they are exquisite. The wall cabinetry is finished in a very soothing and very pale sea foam green color. The upper cabinets alternate between having a decorative seeded glass front which contains bubbles and dots, closed cabinetry and open shelving right and left above the double sink with the large double window which looks onto the deck and straight out to the lake.
Here you can see a into the living room from the opposite side of the eating area looking down into the hallway that leads to the Master Bedroom.
There is a back staircase that goes to a extra large private retreat, large enough for lots of beds for the kids to crash in during a large family gathering. This room has its own full bathroom. I especially like the staircase to this private retreat.
Lets go out back!
There is a wonderful fire pit surrounded by seating. I can just picture kids surrounding this pit while toasting marshmallows.
Come on, walk with me down to the boat house. Look at these beautiful natural stone pavers, also notice the stairs down to the lake on the left side where the grass ends. As you will see there are several way into this water.
I hope you enjoyed this incredible lake house. I have to go now, that swing is calling my name, and I must answer. I think there is a bottle of wine and some cheese and crackers waiting for me.
