Lafayette Retreat

This award-winning lake home is a picture of summer family bliss. This stunning renovation completely transformed a dark and segmented home into expansive, light-filled spaces that open seamlessly to the lake.  But the home isn't just about looks, it is also all about function.  A large farm-house style kitchen table brings the family right to the action, while a tuck-away working pantry shifts the mess out of sight.  The mudroom and lake bath take care of all the boat chores, while having a bit of fun.
