Charming English country home nestled on the shores of Lake Michigan

This beautiful English country home was designed by Wade Weissmann Architecture, located on a Lake Michigan shoreline property in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When the client had first commissioned the architects, they were residing in a beautifully tailored ‘arts and crafts’ style dwelling that showcased quintessential English Tudor detailing.

They had fallen in love with the warmth, materials, and craftsmanship of their residence, and were hoping that their newly acquired home would reflect some of these same characteristics. The goal for this newly developed residence was to embrace the sensibilities of the familiar English country home.

Utilizing various materials to compose a casual yet unique facade, the architects played with local symmetries on the elevations, composing them in a decidedly fun and informal manner.

Large, expressive chimneys and exquisite combinations of brick, timber, and cement stucco come together to create a charming, and undeniably welcoming exterior.

What We Love: This gorgeous English country house offers its inhabitants a warm and welcoming environment both indoors and out. We are just loving the exterior facade of this home, fantastic curb appeal! A gorgeous mix of materials makes the facade very appealing. On the interior, the heavy use of wood in the foyer brings inviting warmth, beckoning guests inside. Large windows boast delightful views of Lake Michigan for a tranquil living environment.

On this home’s beautiful interior, and echoing the layout of many great country homes, rooms were arranged around a central two-story hall, which features a library, which stands atop the space’s grand staircase.

Flanked by large, wooden windows, each of the living areas within this meticulously crafted residence enables its inhabitants to feel as though they are just a few steps away from the water’s edge.

In accordance with the owner’s desire for indoor/outdoor living, several terraces and porches are positioned just outside several of the home’s main living spaces.
