Whether situated by the lake or closer to town, this 5 bedroom 4 bath "Breezy Point" plan by Visbeen Architects (Plan 928-4) exudes a recreational sense of welcome and comfort. With its oval windows, gables, board-and-batten and shingle siding, and ample
porches it recalls the great Shingle style summer houses along the New England coast in places like Manchester-by-Sea,
Massachusetts and Northeast Harbor, Maine from the 1880s and 1890s. The sheltered deck becomes an extension of the living 

room, and frames the lake view. The large island kitchen opens to the dining area, which connects to a screened porch for outdoor

dining, and this space also opens to the central porch off the living room. Indeed, as the floor plan indicates, it's a house that breathes a summertime sigh of relief as soon as you open the front door, since you can look right through the house to nature in the 

distance: whether lake, meadow, or mountain vista. The master suite and a den are in the opposite wing. Upstairs are three more bedrooms, two bunks -- one of which is shown here, where youngsters and their cousins and friends can have sleepovers -- and a loft sitting room. The basement has space for games, and another den and bedroom. Indeed, it's a house for relaxation and making fun family memories, whether as an occasional getaway or as a year-round home.
