The Lakeshore is a modern Craftsman house plan designed to show off impressive views on a down-hill sloped lot. The front of the house is stylish and charming but the rear is the real showstopper. A stone chimney flanked by rows of windows and wrapped in a deck is sure to impress even the harshest critic.
At the front door, to the right, is a small storage closet perfect to hold bicycles or other outdoor gear. Through the front door is a mudroom with entry into the laundry room, allowing for muddy shoes and dusty clothes to be shed before entering the main living area.
Walking into the main living area, you are greeted with ample natural light coming in from large, floor to ceiling windows all along the back of the house. The central great room has tall 16-foot vaulted ceilings for an inviting, open feel. There is also an impressive, yet cozy fireplace to enjoy while chatting with family and friends. The left side of the house is an open kitchen and dining area. The kitchen has a long island with an eating bar for extra room to work and a place for a casual breakfast. The dining room features more floor to ceiling windows and a sliding door out to a covered deck perfect for outdoor entertainment.
On the other side of the house is the master bedroom. This room is not lacking in windows either and also features a spacious walk-in closet and a private entrance into the main floor bathroom. This bathroom has dual vanities, a private bath, a large walk-in shower, and a relaxing spa tub.
Going down the centrally located staircase will lead to the walk-out, daylight basement. The central part of the basement is a family room with another warm fireplace. This area can be used as a media room, game room, or whatever is needed. The main area is flanked on both sides by bedrooms. With four bedrooms and two full baths, this area is perfect for company or extended family to stay and enjoy the views.
