Lake Keowee: Smith Private Residence traditional-exterior

Lake Keowee: Smith Private Residence

With its cedar shake roof and siding, complemented by Swannanoa stone, this lakeside home conveys the Nantucket style beautifully. The overall home design promises views to be enjoyed inside as well as out with a lovely screened porch with a Chippendale railing.

Throughout the home are unique and striking features. Antique doors frame the opening into the living room from the entry. The living room is anchored by an antique mirror integrated into the overmantle of the fireplace.

The kitchen is designed for functionality with a 48” Subzero refrigerator and Wolf range. Add in the marble countertops and industrial pendants over the large island and you have a stunning area. Antique lighting and a 19th century armoire are paired with painted paneling to give an edge to the much-loved Nantucket style in the master. Marble tile and heated floors give way to an amazing stainless steel freestanding tub in the master bath.

While this is just naturally weathered shakes, I'm sure a siding manufacturer could match up a similar stained shake for you.

What type of copper gutters are used? Are they half round? And are the downspouts corrugated?

Do you happen to know how many coats of stain were used? I am using this same color on my cedar siding and it just doesn't look similar to this at all. Mine is definitely more blue than grey...thanks!

Unfortunately, I’m not sure how many coats were used. On many exterior stains you can only use one coat because using more effects the protective qualities.
