The Northern Nautical

Gorgeous lakefront views are the focal point of every room in this custom home; views which inspired the homeowners to bring tasteful nautical influences indoors. A custom, lighthouse newel post, complete with nautical lamp, is a surprising highlight as you make the turn up a light and bright, wood-planked staircase. The stairs lead to three quaint upper bedrooms, including a playful bunk room, and a window-seat that is a serene retreat to read or enjoy the remarkable view. The living room fireplace stone was preserved from the property’s original dwelling and meticulously formed around the new gas fireplace. Detailed millwork and coffered ceilings add warmth and character to the main floor. This family’s only regret, “we should have done this years ago.”
