This lake house had originally been two separate structures that are now joined, an original cottage and an adjacent out building once connected by a porch. The new remodel has married the two buildings with the addition of a central living room. The cottage volume contains the kitchen, dining spaces and entry on the first level. On the second-floor lives bedrooms with porch access, individual bathrooms and a casual family room.
The former out building houses the master bedroom with an ensuite bath featuring a bathing tub with direct views to Lake Michigan. A soaring fireplace flanked by floor to ceiling window walls is the anchoring feature of the new living room. A covered porch directly from the living room offers a second fireplace and provides a protected respite.
All interior finishes, furnishings and fabrics echo a peaceful ‘Zen’ making the project a tranquil haven to be enjoyed all year.
