Disaster creates opportunity. After losing the family cabin to a fire, this family recreated a modern craftsman retreat completely designed for lake-oriented entertaining and activities. The existing site was perfect for a rambler with walk-out basement, but rather than putting the bedrooms in the basement, and wasting valuable lakefront access, the primary areas of the home are located on the lower level. This provides a direct connection for lakeside entertaining to the kitchen, dining and main living room.
Lakeside entertaining. The craftsman influenced home has optimal lakeside entertaining with an exterior fireplace, bar, jacuzzi and patio. The interior has more of a Cape Cod influence and features a theater room, billiards and wet bar. The perfect getaway for summer weekends at the lake.
