Blaine

The classic 5,000-square-feet, five-bedroom Blaine boasts a timeless and traditional façade of stone and cedar shake. Inspired by both the relaxed Shingle Style that swept the East Coast at the turn of the century and the all-American Four Square style found around the country, it features Old World architecture and modern conveniences as well as unparalleled craftsmanship and quality design.

The curb appeal starts at the street, where a caramel-colored shingle and stone façade invite you inside from the European-style courtyard. Other highlights include irregularly shaped windows, a charming dovecote, cupola and a variety of welcoming window boxes on the street side. The lake side includes two porches designed to take full advantage of the views, a lower-level walk out and stone arches that lend an aura of both elegance and permanence.

Step inside, and the interiors won’t disappoint. A spacious foyer with wood staircase leads into a large, open living room with natural stone fireplace, rustic beams and nearby walk-out deck. Also adjacent is a screened-in porch with a door and steps that lead down to the home’s lower level as well as an inviting lake. The nearby kitchen includes a large two-tiered multi-purpose island with butcher block perfect for both entertaining and food preparation as well as an informal dining area perfect for gathering both family and friends. Leaving the home’s family area, cross the foyer and enter your private retreat, a master bedroom suite with a large master bath as well as a private sitting room and sun room. Who needs vacation when it’s such a pleasure staying home?

The second floor features two cozy bedrooms, a bunk room with built-in sleeping area and a convenient home office. In the lower level, a relaxed family room, billiards area, pub with wine cellar and two additional bedrooms await.
