The approach to this traditional home on Cavanaugh Lake presents the first impression of a welcoming, modestly scaled, classic gable-roofed home with a low-pitched porch roof wrapping the garage and living room wing. A curved stair landing quietly anchors the front entry. The lakeside view of this home then presents a contrasting dramatic impression of the home as a vertical composition, perched on the rim of the hill, with a curved dining terrace projecting forward with living space below, and steps cascading down the hillside to the lake. Walls of double-hung windows provide views through the home to the lake beyond and flood the home with natural light. The space between the house and the garage provides a second walkway for easy access for guests (and pets) to access the lake side of the home. French doors thrown open to the dining terrace provide an elegant overlook to the lake, sheltered by the classically detailed porch. The stone-clad lower level provides a bunkroom for grandchildren and a walkout level for entertaining on the lower more private terrace. This home was completed in the summer of 2020, with the landscaping completed in the summer of 2021, providing a welcoming environment for entertaining family and friends in this elegant timeless home overlooking the lake.
