Traditional Style Lake Home – Merrimac, WI
This Traditional style home in Merrimac blends classic and modern features with a touch of rustic elegance. The home was designed to make views of Lake Wisconsin the focal point and create luxurious living space inside and out.
The exterior contrasts Summit Blue LP Smartside with Snowscape white columns with stone bases and black exterior/white interior windows. A porch with retractable screens and a white tongue and groove ceiling is accessible from the kitchen, as well as a lakeside access deck featuring white posts and black spindles. Doors leading to the deck and patio feature dual sliding glass doors.
The arched front entry welcomes you into the foyer and then great room, made airy with a barrel-vaulted ceiling. Arches carry through to the interior in the extra-large great room window, entryways and doorways. The fireplace is yet another highlight of the great room, with white paneling and crown molding detail at the mantel to tie in with the built-in cabinetry.
The kitchen is open to the dining room, which features a tray ceiling. Maple cabinetry in a white icing finish and granite countertops complement the white subway tile with decorative herringbone tile backsplash. A hidden walk-in pantry blends with the cabinetry.
A staircase with custom metal railing leads to the second-floor master suite, laundry room and living space above the garage. The master suite features maple cabinetry, quartz countertops, large tile shower, walk-in closet and private deck that overlooks the lake.
A staircase in the garage provides secondary access to the open, multi-functional basement with a family room, fireplace, traditional style bar, game space, bedrooms, and bathroom.
A 450 square foot boathouse with rooftop deck completes the lakeside living experience.
