Built on the south shore of Lake Morey, this shingle-style house is a gracious and informal home. The architectural details refer to the tradition of 19th century country villas. The two-story living room with a free standing stone fireplace and views down the length of the lake provides the central focus of the home. All of the bedrooms communicate with a balcony overlooking the living room. The open porches, screened porches, sleeping porches, sweeping roof lines and the detached garage break down the building’s mass so that it fits comfortably into the lakeside neighborhood.
