These days, most potential homeowners have a keen interest in creating a unique, one-of-a-kind home. To accomplish that goal, sometimes you have to think out of the box. Remember, log cabins don’t have to be built exclusively from wood. The Riverside Lodge is a striking example of how stone can be thoughtfully and effectively integrated into a design. Often, people only think of stone as a flooring option or as exterior hardscaping material, but it can also be used in a myriad of vertical applications, like this one. The classic wood structure, a design that’s a bit of throwback to old-fashioned farmhouse constructs from Colonial times, benefits greatly from the stone facade’s appeal. Additionally, rustic butt and pass corner joins bring in more texture and contribute to the traditional feel of the building’s design.
If you’re not inclined towards stairs, or have accessibility concerns, you might consider mimicking this entryway style in your own custom home. A single step gets you into the house quickly and easily. And those two covered porches? Ahhhhhh…just add comfy wicker furniture or a couple of Adirondack chairs and watch guests settle right in, perhaps with a good book in hand or a glass of lemonade.
After entering through the mudroom, you’ll emerge into a stunning, open-concept living space. Dominated by a breathtaking stone fireplace, a design feature that ties back into the stone-themed entrance, the downstairs living room is a relaxing respite for family and guests alike.
The Riverside Lodge log home features a number of eclectic design choices, including a spacious open kitchen area with an generous eat-on counter. A separate island houses the stove and oven, and includes a convenient serving area on one side. In this kitchen, don’t forget to look up! Exposed beams and artisan craftsmanship combine to add ambiance and warmth to the room.
Just steps from the kitchen is the dining room, featuring three walls of windows through which light just pours in. This is a place to wow guests with incredible views while dining and entertaining.
A spacious master suite, including a full bathroom, separate vanity area, and a large walk-in closet is also located on the first floor. Main level masters are always an excellent choice for anyone heading towards retirement who plans to age in place. At the back of the house, the main floor opens up into a huge, partially screened-in deck with beautiful lighting details. Grill outdoors and then eat inside…no bugs and no inclement weather!
The upper floor is ideal for family or guests, with much of the square footage allocated to three large bedrooms served by two full baths. Built-in dresser drawers and wall-mounted lighting contribute to a minimalist design sensibility. The spacious den can be enjoyed as a quiet spot away from the downstairs bustle downstairs, or transform into a play area or craft room.
