Exterior Amenities

The beautiful white 5 inch clapboard siding on the outside of this cottage-style home comes from the Artisan Collection of James Hardie Siding. All of the windows are Marvin.  In the back of the home facing the lake is a covered porch with beautiful flagstone terrace.  There, you can sit and enjoy the wood-burning stone fireplace topped with limestone mantel while watching the sunset over the lake.  Lower the motorized Phantom screens with the touch of a button to keep the bugs out.  This beautiful cottage-style home is complete with carriage garage doors, flagstone stoop, stone risers, flower boxes and a stone retaining wall.

Interior Amenities


The kitchen gleams in white paneled and glass cabinets.  Matching built-in Subzero refrigerator, and Wolf Range.  The eight foot-long island is topped by marble, finished with satin-nickel hardware.

Dining Room

Stunning 60 inch wainscot paneling stops just under large transom windows.

Living Room

The wood burning fireplace keeps you cozy as you gaze out on to the lake.  The fireplace is surrounded by black marble and white paneling, a built in tv and bookshelves, which sit on either side under transom windows.  The look is complete with white ceiling beams framed by a dark hardwood floor.

Formal Bar Area

The main-floor formal bar area is a few steps away from the Living room through glass pocket doors.  It opens to the Dining room through solid pocket doors and is separated by the outside porch through an Accordion wall to wall door.  Walnut paneling, bar, counter top and ceiling create warmth against the lake.  The room is complete with Perlick “Signature” series beer tap, refrigerators, clear ice maker and bottle shelves.
