This romantic cottage was designed by Wade Weissmann Architecture in collaboration with Peabody’s Interiors, located in Door County, Wisconsin. Door County is on a peninsula between Green Bay and Lake Michigan. This traditionally styled home offers magnificent lake views with beautiful architecture to match. Local limestone graces the exterior facade of the main residence. The interiors were designed to offer a comfortable living environment for this captivating home.

Here is the background story: This quirky home, along with a coach house, garage and boathouse, have resided on the property for 100 years. Over the course of many years, it had been altered multiple times, which prompted the homeowners to ask the architects if they should bother to renovate or just tear it down.

The architects found that the history of this home to be peculiar yet enchanting and decided to set out on a journey to fully renovate and update the home. Close attention to detail was made on the kitchen, rear porch and several other spaces that had undergone somewhat odd additions. The entire process took two-and-a-half years to complete.

Absolutely beautiful. A great job tying in all the years of different people occupying the home. The interior design elements are fresh, yet classic.
