South Shore Vacation Home on Clear Lake

  • Lake view of new cottage

Project Description

Centered on the south shore of beautiful Clear Lake, this elevated home site provides a spectacular vista of the lake to the north. As is typical of many lake-side building sites, this sloping lot presented unique design challenges and opportunities for the landscaping, hardscaping and home layout. Lynn worked closely with the owners to design a home that not only meets their requirements but complies with the strict ordinances of the Town of Clear Lake as well.

This two-story home consists of 3,100 sq. ft. of living area above grade and is built on an unfinished walk-out basement and attached one-car garage. Like so many vacation homes there is an abundance of sleeping areas (5 bedrooms) and 4 1/2 baths. The master suite is located on the main floor and accompanied by the laundry room, mud room and a large area on the lake side consisting of the great room, dining room and kitchen.

Two levels of maintenance free decks as well as a Rosetta stone lake side patio provide wonderful options for outdoor entertaining. A strategically placed lake toy storage area offers a convenient outdoor closet to secure skis, life preservers and the like. The home is designed with the very popular Craftsman style and low maintenance materials will be used to allow for maximum leisure time at “The Lake”.
