Bright, roomy Lakeside is family-friendly
The textural interplay of stone veneer wainscoting and shake-textured siding can't help but draw eyes to this classic European cottage. While the Lakeside is designed for construction on a parcel of land that slopes down on the left, it could also be built on a level lot. The home's stone-trimmed entry arch adds to its yesteryear charm.
Light spills into the vaulted entry through sidelights and a transom. An arched opening on the right leads into the dining room and on to the kitchen. The arched opening on the left takes you into a vaulted living room with a gas fireplace. Proceeding forward, with a slight jog around the railed stairway and powder room, brings you into the vaulted family room. Windows fill most of the rear wall here and in the nook, where sliding glass doors open onto a side patio.
A multi-angled eating bar marks the boundary between the nook and kitchen. Cabinets run along overhead, capping the open space below. The kitchen's central work island has a cook top. Laundry appliances, along with a roomy pantry and a utility sink, are right around the corner in a pass-through utility room that links with the garage.
The spacious owners' suite is also on the ground level. It boasts a deep walk-in closet and a roomy bathroom with a spa tub and double vanity. Soft light filters in through glass blocks on two sides of the deep spa tub.
Upstairs, a railed balcony cuts across the upper air space of the Lakeside's vaulted entry and family room below. A bedroom and a deep, unfinished bonus room are to the right, while a two-section bathroom and a bedroom with a rectangular windowed alcove are on the left.
