Plan Description

This spectacular cottage was meticulously designed by Visbeen Architects to make the most of a sloping lot and scenic views, winning it a first-place award int e Model Home category at the 2008 American Residential Design Awards. Long rooflines and interesting angles add to its picturesque street-side facade, while the lake side includes porches on three levels and a walkout basement, all designed to take full advantage of the watery views. Interior spaces are equally pleasing, especially the fireplace-warmed master suite on the second floor. The optional third floor features a cozy tower room perfect for watching sunsets or reading a good book.
