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.

Thanks for your question Lauriebm! All the trim work in white is custom. The siding is cedar shingles with a custom paint. The porch ceiling is a stain v-groove.

We're about to build a porch similar to this one ( not quite as grand). Love the flooring material. Is that blue stone?

What material are the posts made from? I like smooth finish with nice base & crown detail. Is it a high density material, aluminum, vinyl or wood (species) . Thank You.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Enliven Your Porch With Color
Fall mums inspire a few autumnal red accents as the seasons change around this porch.
15. A cozy porch. Plump pillows, fluffy throws and pots of gorgeous fall blooming flowers come together to create a porch you can happily spend time on long into the fall. Carry a mug of hot apple cider out, put your feet up and relax.How to cozy up outside this fallTell us: Would you try any of these ideas?
With a lakeside setting like this one in upstate New York, it’s not surprising that a knockout front porch was part of the plan for this new home. It has all the essential elements: boxed columns, a bluestone floor, a wood ceiling (fir V-groove boards with a clear finish) and wicker seating with lots of plush cushions.

Set a seductive mood with paths. Much like the female form, serpentine pathways create the sensual vibe of an unfolding story. The entire garden is not visible from any single juncture. A sense of mystery is established as the garden is explored and discovered anew at every turn. A quick straight path to first base is not to be found in this garden.
