Design Statement | The cottage-style Craftsman exterior with cedar-shake siding, rustic, reclaimed barn timbers and handmade cement tiles and countertops add unique architectural accents to this home. Gorgeously crafted warehouse style doors open to a climate-controlled wine room. A Marvin bi-folding door with Phantom Screen opens the sunroom to the outdoors. This five-bedroom, six-bath home also features white-oak hardwood floors and lofted ladders in the children’s suites. Other amenities include a 566- square-foot art studio, boathouse with cantilevered deck and a three-car garage.

Judges’ Comments | “Nice big windows…for a traditional house it’s all decked out with contemporary on the inside | The roof pulls it together well. Love the white rooms with black doors and trim.”
