Designed with an open floor plan and layered outdoor spaces, this Visbeen Architects plan fits nicely on a slim lakefront lot. Elements from both the Shingle and Craftsman architectural movement create a warm cottage feel on the exterior. Inside, the open main level encourages movement while gently defining spaces with columns. The kitchen features a long island capped by a pub-height table with chairs for a fun, relaxed vibe. Above the garage (and separate from the main house) a bonus space includes a bedroom, bunk room, full bathroom, and living space. Meanwhile, the master suite offers the best views from its private deck. Just a step away in the hallway, the laundry room is easy to access. Another bedroom up here uses the hall bathroom, while the small office provides an inviting spot for enjoying views while working from home. The walkout lower level can be finished to hold a variety of fun spaces, including a large kitchenette, guest bedroom, and a full bathroom that's convenient for rinsing off sandy feet after a dip in the water.
