This reimagined lakeside cottage is transformed creating an idyllic retreat to live, work and play year-round. A combination of open lofted spaces and seldom found intricate details evoke a rustic sophistication. Each space is crafted for multiple uses. Enter to find a great room with vertical grain fir floors, locally quarried stone, gas fireplace, beamed ceilings and window seat. A sun-filled kitchen has gas cooking and incredible storage. There is a bedroom with exposed stone, a mudroom/laundry/office and one FB on the first floor-all with stunning views. The deck is a perfect vantage point for viewing an everchanging array of birds and waterfowl. A turned stair leads to a master bedroom suite with expansive lake views. The post and beam carriage house is 20 steps away. Created as a work at home space, it’s the perfect guest house adding 1000 SF. A lower-level great room offers inspirational views. Upstairs find a studio with kitchenette and full bath. The two-car garage is just below. Both buildings are renovated stem to stern (see spec sheets) - insulation, wiring, plumbing, well and septic, Marvin windows/doors, high efficiency propane heat and on demand hot water and central air in the main house. Split units are found in the barn. This 1.49 acre parcel offers gently sweeping grounds settling at lake’s edge. Launch your boat from the dock and discover 265 acres of pristine fishing, boating and swimming. If you’re not yet convinced, visit at sunset. Welcome home.
