Lake George HomeHague, New York
Sited on the shore of Lake George, this exquisitely crafted, four-bedroom, lake home incorporates large spaces where groups can gather as well as intimate spaces for relaxation.
Details of shingles and stone, typical of Adirondack architecture, tie the house to its site and the region. The granite fireplace is a central feature of the open first-floor plan; the same stone is repeated in the chimney, at the foundation, and in the landscape.
The scope of work for this lakefront home encompasses the design of extensive built-ins and cabinetry, the selection of interior and exterior finishes and fixtures, and the detailing of custom pieces including a steel range hood, a soapstone sink, stair and deck railings and a unique light fixture made of canoe paddles.
“Joan Heaton managed all of the interior and exterior design including landscaping, working closely with the contractor. She has wonderful expertise, design aesthetic and attention to detail. She has very high standards and is scrupulously professional. She is a great communicator and is easy to work with. She is a superstar. She produced superb results.”
