Understanding the homeowner’s vision, Scott Lowell reaches back to his New England roots for this inspired Lake Geneva home. The Hampton’s Shingle is an example of all-American architecture that embraces gracious living. Originally created as a departure from elaborate Victorian design, this style is synonymous with casual elegance. An asymmetrical arrangement of multiple rooflines, gabled facades, and Palladian windows define the look. Wrap around porches connect the interiors of this hilltop home with scenic grounds and the lake views. The interior features a domed entry, curved library walls, a chef’s kitchen and secret rooms. Interior woodwork and molding contributes to the warmth throughout generous spaces. Volume ceilings and walls of windows on every floor invite the light and expose scenic vistas from every perspective.
While social spaces define much of the Lake House, the Guest House captures the Hampton’s Shingle style from an intimate viewpoint. A strong visual connection is maintained to the main house while achieving a cottage-like atmosphere. Multiple bedrooms care for visitor’s privacy within a short walk from the waters edge. Garden views and quiet reading niches provide a reflective escape for homeowners and guests alike.
