Timeless Lakefront Style
From the cedar shingle siding to the separate, enclosed screen room this South Shore Custom Home was custom designed to make the outdoors part of the living experience. Situated on the north shore of Geneva Lake, Wisconsin, this home reflects the design sensibilities of a bygone era and looks gorgeous in every elevation.
This home has been featured in the book, Distinctive Homes of America: Volume IV and has been the highlight of the Antique and Classic Boat Society's annual home tour.
Kitchen and Dining Room
The kitchen is the heart of the home. This is especially true when the custom home is designed around entertaining guests and family, as this one is. From the custom honed carrara marble countertops to the one-of-a-kind steel and polished nickel hood, the details of this kitchen are designed to blend the outside and inside of the home seamlessly.
The true beauty of a custom home derives from the ability of the home to reflect the personality of the owners, matching form to function in a way that the home helps to create and enhance the experience of living. In this home, comfort and echoing the natural beauty of all the Midwestern seasons is key to amplifying the lake-oriented lifestyle of the owners. The result is an inviting, comfortable experience that is ideal for entertaining and is equally fulfilling whether enjoying the stark beauty of a winter morning or relaxing away a warm summer evening.
The Guest Suite in this custom home was designed to provide visitors with a sumptuous experience that's consistent with the welcoming mood of the whole home. The guest is afforded autonomy and an immediate feeling of welcome through the placement of the Guest Suite entry off the foyer. From the warm feel of the bedroom to the lavish but tasteful bath suite, the experience harkens back to yesteryear: precisely the experience the homeowner wishes to create.
Bedrooms in custom homes are spaces in which personal style of individual family members can truly shine. As in all South Shore Custom Homes projects, we work with each family member to learn who they are, where their passions and comforts lie, and create a space that's uniquely "them".
The bathroom: your own private spa, custom tailored to your comfort and personality. Too often, other builders neglect the sanctuary and warmth that these spaces represent: we start and end our days here, and these spaces should reflect warmth, comfort, and peace. The bathrooms in this home, from the grand shower of the Master Suite, to the vibrant femininity of their daughter's space, from the warm masculinity of the "Jack-and-Jill" shared by their sons to the welcoming opulence of the Guest Suite, deliver on that goal of providing truly comfortable and personal spaces.
