A contemporary cottage with a sophisticated style. This England inspired cottage is a traditional blend of color and textures, uniting interior spaces with the outdoors. White oak covers the main level living area and is complimented by a bluestone exterior patio that ties the two spaces together. Interior paneled walls, columns and crown moldings designate spaces yet connect to custom built-in cabinetry. This theme is carried to the upper level featuring a wide plank bleached Douglas fir floor.

Materials inspired by the shores of Nantucket. The bluestone patio extends across the entire lakeside of the home with sheltered spaces for entertaining. Bonderized metal covers the lower roof portions for aesthetic appeal and variation. A combination of cement board siding and cedar shakes complete the exterior.
