Judges said: Despite its cottage-style massing and detail, this is a grand house in a grand tradition on a grand lake! The house succeeds in transitioning from a rigorously formal front façade to a much more informal lakeside façade. Overall, there is good control of large volumes balanced by more intimate nooks, materials and finishes. Many of the rooms seem delightfully bright and sunny. There is good consistency, quality and craftsmanship from the large elements of scale and form to the millwork details.
