Skaneateles, New York
This Skaneateles, NY custom lake house is perched on a steeply sloping west-facing site. The house was designed in a transitional style on lakefront property. Key elements in the design were to create open, light, and airy spaces, to maximize the beautiful vistas of the lake and to create an aesthetic that was in context with the traditional architecture of the community. The project was inspired by the East Lake movement of the 19th-century architecture and detail, but with sweeping views, a more open floor plan, and the essence of a contemporary lifestyle.
