Soft grays and beige carry the farm theme throughout again telling the story of a relaxing vacation and inviting you to sit and stay a while. Exterior elements were carefully considered to stay in line with the Lake Cottage theme. Stone and hardi- plank in varying shades of gray and beige bring this home to life not to mention the solid cedar beams on the front and back porch that soar 26” high.
Using different textures creates an interesting dynamic for the façade. Energy efficiency was kept in mind by using spray foam insulation, Nest thermostats, Nest smoke detectors and the home has many smart features including several I Pad mounts through-out that control the Sonos speaker system, thermostats and Haiku smart SenseMe fans.
Upon entering the front door you are welcomed into a warm cozy interior with wide hand hewn plank flooring, wainscoting with custom made railroad spike coat hooks including a drop zone that will accommodate the largest of families. Beyond the foyer is the dining room and has an open flow into the spacious family room with a stone fireplace flanked by built in book cases, vaulted beamed ceilings and large windows that capture the water views from every angle.
The master retreat just off the family room features a full wall of windows and barn doors leading into the master bath. The master bath has wide plank tile, custom cabinets, frameless shower enclosure and a free standing soaking tub. All of these elements are surrounded by a pallet of soft grey and white subway tile and paints a canvas of tranquility that no mom would want to leave.
This open floor plan allows ease and functionality while the family room continues into the kitchen featuring custom white cabinets and an island top made from Reclaimed beams that were imported from Europe.
The kitchen is all in keeping with the farm design hence the old barn lights over the windows, exposed hand hewn floating Cherry shelves, white subway tile and white Quartz counter tops.
From the family room you can step onto the rear porch with amazing water views that makes this a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee.
Switching gears to the basement brings new light with an industrial theme that carries marbled concrete floors, rustic tin and reclaimed beam bar top from Europe. Dominating the back wall of the bar is a stained concrete wall with free floating Walnut shelving that still carries the characteristics of rust from the old cut nails. To compliment these components we finished off the electrical with metal conduit and concrete countertops. Moving down the wall the two reclaimed gas station lights cast a warm glow upon the shuffleboard table that was custom built for the homeowner. WOW what a statement!
