Pretty Lake Two-Story Cottage

  • Street side view of lake cottage

Project Description

Situated on the west shoreline of the appropriately named Pretty Lake, this home now serves as a year-round residence for this family. The existing cottage on the site has been demolished while the existing unattached garage has been preserved and will remain as a separate structure. The layout of the new home was designed with the possibility of easily adding an attached garage in the future if that is ever desired.

This compact two story offers 2 bedrooms with the owner’s suite situated on the main floor. The second floor sports the second bedroom and a loft open to the great room below. Sloped ceilings and an open floor plan will create the feeling of a home much larger than its 1,778 sq. ft. of living area.

A screened porch and deck on the lake side and a covered porch on the street side provide options for outdoor entertaining. The exterior of the home will be primarily covered with maintenance free vinyl siding and manufactured stone to allow the owner to spend more time fishing and less time doing chores. Extensive landscaping compliments this pretty home on Pretty Lake.
