Lake-View Getaway

Designed as a weekend retreat for a family of four, this lakeside home strikes a seamless balance between its modern exterior and warm, transitional interior. The entry’s mudroom cabinets and the pantry/laundry room’s fittings, complete with wine racks and a bar fridge, help to keep life’s necessities organized. The open-concept great room is the ideal hub for family gatherings and relaxation, and features a wood-burning fireplace with stone surround and live-edge wood mantle. The kitchen island’s striking quartzite countertop is a unique feature in the home. As a whole, the home’s neutral colour pallet and natural, modern rustic design elements pay homage to it’s serene exterior surroundings. A four-panel sliding glass door connects the great room to an expansive back deck with sweeping lake views, and additional lake-side windows flood the space with natural light. Two bedrooms and a full bathroom round out the main floor. Upstairs, two bedrooms with walk-in closets are interconnected by a Jack & Jill bathroom with a private toilet/shower room.
