The exterior of the lake house offers plenty of visual interest with varied rooflines and an attractive stone construction. The staircase on the side was originally intended to come down from the back deck, but designers moved it to keep sightlines open out to the lake.
A modern lounge chair rests beside an infinity pool with sweeping views of a Connecticut lake. Blue pillows connect to the hue's use in the home's interior. The house is fun inside and out for this family of five.
To give the living room more expansive views of the lake and mountains, designers widened the doorway into the sunroom and added larger windows. On the other side, folding doors now join the room with a screened porch.
To update the look of this lake house's front exterior facade, designers rejuvenated the cedar shingle roof and had new copper gutters installed. Blue siding was put on the house, and the existing garage door was replaced with a mahogany one, and the Dutch door was restored to bring back the home's charm. To put the finishing touch on the home, new landscaping was added, making the home feel cozy and inviting.
Rooms open out to sweeping views of Lake Montauk through wall-sized glass doors. The color scheme inside is designed to focus attention on the home's beautiful setting, with natural materials in bleached white, browns and crisp black.
With the Adirondack Mountains on one side and Lake George on the other, the town of Hague, N.Y., is an idyllic escape from big city living. Here, a three-story lake house with large porches and a private dock encourages its owners to slow down and soak up the natural beauty.
Situated against the side of the house and running the entire length of the residence is this sleek pool concept designed by Lake Flato Architects that reflects the intimacy of the water canals of Venice.
As you step inside this luxury home, a grand entrance hall with plush carpet awaits you. A pair of delicate glass pendant lights hang above, and a statue of a knight in armor completes the elegant design.
To make the most of the home's floor plan (and create even more space for entertaining), the designers converted the basement into a den. A built-in entertainment unit houses the TV, with shelves on either side for DVDs, while a sectional and ottoman encourage everyone to cuddle up for a movie night.
