After exploring the possibilities of remodeling the existing cottage the owners and Lynn came to the logical conclusion that the best way forward was to remove the existing cottage and start new.
The new home will be built on a pretty site on Hamilton Lake in Steuben County. The 2,484 sq. ft. of living area provides plenty of space for 4 bedrooms ( master on the main floor) as well as a large bonus room overlooking the lake on the 2nd floor. There are 3 full baths serviced by an on-demand water heater for those times when there is a house full of guests.
An extra deep bay in the two car garage will allow for a boat to be stored in the winter. There will be plenty of room for entertaining in the large open area that includes the great room, kitchen and dining area, with beautiful views of the lake from anywhere in this space.
The existing decks will be preserved and resurfaced at a later date. The owners are very anxious to see the finished product as are we.
