From Kids to Quiet

On the site of an old family summer cottage, nestled on a lake in upstate New York, rests this newly constructed year round residence. The house is designed for two, yet provides plenty of space for adult children and grandchildren to come and visit. The serenity of the lake is captured with an open floor plan, anchored by fireplaces to cozy up to. The public side of the house presents a subdued presence with a courtyard enclosed by three wings of the house.

The company that did this custom window is Pella, but most window companies can make a custom window similar to this.

I would guess by the form and size a flowering cherry or crabapple, but the image is too small to be sure.They work very well in this beautiful "dooryard" entrance.

Glad, you are interested in this home. Unfortunately, we do not show floor plans of our projects. We protect the privacy of our clients, as well as the time and money spent developing their custom home.
