From the exterior of the home, a cedar shake roof and siding along with Swannanoa stone veneer (in an ashlar pattern) accents helps to blend this home into its lakeside environment. Designed to maximize the views from inside and out, with a cozy screened-in porch with a Chippendale railing. The interiors offers 5,775 square feet of living space, with four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half baths. Eye-catching and unique features are abound, such as antique doors framing the living room entryway.
The cottage was designed by Greenville-based architects Mel Dias Designs. The siding of the cedar shake is Sherwin Williams Blue Shadow semi-transparent; while the trim paint is Benjamin Moore Winter White in a semi-gloss.
