Westport New York RenovationWestport, New York

Once a seasonal rental property, this charming lakeside cottage now serves as a vacation home for a family of five. The property was in need of extensive renovation but it’s proximity to Lake Champlain made it worth the effort.  New timber framed porches enhance the exterior and blend with historic trim and shingle details.  The covered porches along with an existing deck, renovated screened porch and second floor balcony provide ample outdoor living space.

Extensive renovation on the interior created spaces for entertaining and relaxation including a new kitchen and dining area, a living room, a study, four bedrooms and three and one half baths.  New cabinetry and millwork throughout give the house a fresh appeal while maintaining the overall character of this historic house.
