Friendly Lake-Front Farmhouse for Family Vacations

Designed for a large extended family, this six-bedroom residence with its gambrel roofline, gray cedar shake exterior and stone chimney is reminiscent of a stately farmhouse. The primary bedroom enjoys the second-floor terrace above the glazed sunroom, with magnificent views of the lake from most rooms in the home.

Multigenerational Vacation Home Is Both Attractive and Accessible

Pairs of white columns grace the white paneled front patio with gray cedar shake shingles on the second story of the residence. Accessibility is key in this attractive modern farmhouse, with the first floor close to grade and an elevator servicing all levels of the home.

Open-Concept Main Level Offers Lake Views

Subtly arched doorways with white millwork pair with pale yellow walls in the entry. A view down the hallway reveals the living room, the all-season room beyond and, finally, views of the lake outside. The designers' goal was to keep the home light, airy and open.

Cheery Coastal Vibe for Lakeside Living Room

Four sets of French doors open the living room to the all-season room. A white tray ceiling backed in shiplap is an elegant country touch and augments to the airy feel the copious windows lend to the room. Out of view is a large stone fireplace. A neutral linen sectional and rattan armchairs in a coastal blue create a cheery, inviting grouping.

White and Bright Friendly Farmhouse Kitchen

With plenty of space to sample and mingle, a wide and open kitchen with Shaker-style cabinetry welcomes chefs and guests alike. Four blue-glass pendant lights overhang a large central island with a prep sink and seating, and the wall opposite contains a coffee bar and wet bar area.

Lakeside Dining for Friends and Family

A pale wood farmhouse table is accompanied by side chairs with flecks of blue in their fabric atop a sea blue rug in the dining room. White shiplap wainscoting joins white molding to frame the pale-yellow walls. Centrally located in the home, the dining room was designed to be polished for formal entertaining and cozy for family meals in one breath. By using cased openings on all four sides, the room feels intimate while allowing for the gorgeous lake views.

Blue-and-White Guest Bedroom With Views of the Water

A white-and-blue bedroom is one of three guest suites in the home with views of the water. A high chest and four-poster bed in white join a wicker accent chair and hamper to finish the room in a friendly, country style.

Primary Bathroom Soaking Tub Offers Views of the Lake

A soaking tub enjoys both spa jets and lake views in an intimate corner of the primary bathroom bathed in white.

Primary Bedroom's Private Terrace With Lake Beyond

The primary bedroom suite is beautiful in blue with white cove ceiling, built-in bookcases and molding providing contrast. The view from the bed is of the room-spanning private terrace and the gorgeous view of the lake beyond.

All-Season Room Open to Nature

Natural fabrics in a gentle blue are the ideal selection for the armchairs and sofa in the all-season room, with a fun coastal ottoman bringing personality to the party. With a 270-degree view of the lake, this light-filled sanctuary is simply glorious. The floor-to-ceiling windows allow breezes to flow through, and four French doors open to the living room to make one large entertainment space.

Lakeside Home's Rear Garden Has Room for Play

With entertaining in mind, the clients requested that the rear of the home be as carefully designed as the front. An expansive patio and manicured lawn permit stargazing, outdoor dining, hot-tub soaking and frolicking in rich, green grass — innumerable enjoyment possibilities for grandchildren and grandparents alike.

L-Shaped Aspect Allows Lake Views From All Rooms

This lakeside vacation cottage conveys a friendly farmhouse vibe with cedar shake siding and a gambrel roofline. The architects chose an L-shape for the home to create an intimate entry, offer privacy from the neighbors and maximize the lake views. The clients wanted to incorporate an aging-in-place aesthetic, so the home was built close to grade, has wide hallways and an elevator services all levels of the residence.

Multigenerational Vacation Home a Dream Come True

This six-bedroom, beautiful lakeside residence features a glazed all-season room below and private terrace above and was designed as a multigenerational vacation home. The clients' wish list included multiple entertaining spaces inside and out, a largely open-concept main level, five guest bedrooms with private bathrooms on the second level and a third-level office.

Side Patio With Outdoor Shower and Mudroom Entrance

A side entrance leads straight through a mudroom to both the kitchen and rear stairway. The small covered patio is home to an outdoor shower stall. A stand-alone two-car garage offers the residence privacy from future homes beyond.

Two-Story Garage Cottage With Exercise Room Above

The home's two-car garage blends seamlessly with the main residence. The upper floor of the garage features an exercise room as well as plenty of storage space. The garage's covered side entry with adjacent windows was designed to convey a cottage feel when viewed from the home's rear patio.
