Upon entering, a brief foyer gives way to a well-designed kitchen at right, and the living room with expansive lake view straight ahead. The kitchen has a generous breakfast bar and ample storage, with Fisher & Paykel counter-depth refrigerator. The living room includes a generous lounge area with wood stove, and finishes at the back with a former porch that has now been enveloped into the main house and boasts two eight foot glass sliders and other windows, that provide exciting lake views. Also on the ground floor is a small guest bedroom, and a renovated, wood-paneled full bathroom with new claw foot tub, that provides access to the sauna.
