Reminiscent of the European gems of yesteryear, this grand manor house, built on Delavan Lake’s south shore, features 125 feet of stunning lakefront property. The traditional exterior pays homage to an era when stucco and stone outfitted some of the area’s finest estates. A large turret features elongated windows and the delightful window boxes add to the home’s historical feel.
When you find this level of old-world charm in a home of this magnitude, many homeowners are eager to reconnect with its original, classic design. And that’s exactly what transpired during the interior and exterior renovations. We created a collaborative partnership with the homeowners that introduced modern amenities while maintaining the homes integrity. The result: exquisitely crafted renovations to the kitchen, great room, mud room, two bathrooms, office, solarium and a new detached garage.
The home’s interior is accented by many rich details including intricate crown moldings, stunning tile, extensive hardwood floors, and a custom glass solarium imported from England. To ensure all the overall architectural schematics remained intact, our team worked painstakingly to build five new arched doorways and doors that were equal in design and craftsmanship as the home’s original arched pine doors. To accomplish this, we handcrafted each doorway, including the jamb, casing and door. And because each door opening was not of equal size, slight modifications were meticulously made to each door to ensure a perfect fit.
