Waterfront Vacation Cottage

The owners inherited this waterfront family cottage, razed it and rebuilt it. The owner sought a comfortable, four-season cottage retreat that allows for entertaining and privacy. The new construction focused on achieving the best possible view of the river and nearby conservation land. The home features walls of windows, three outdoor decks and a screened in- porch. The exposed wood provides texture that fits with the outdoor surroundings.

The best features in this home are the windows, textured wood, and the multiple decks. Two of the living room walls are completely devoted to windows overlooking the river. Textured wood is present throughout the house from the ceiling beams to the floors. The house also features not one or two, but three decks and a screened in porch to allow for outdoor entertaining and enjoying nature’s beauty.

The space’s livability has been greatly improved with the rebuild. The house now has a second floor with two bedrooms, a half bath, and a fully functional loft. The downstairs has an expanded living room with floor to ceiling windows, the kitchen went from a small galley set up to a full gourmet kitchen, and an additional bedroom and full bath rounds out the first floor living space.
