Northwest Bay Retreat
Bolton Landing, NY
The brow of the hill was selected for the project site, situated near an existing natural rock outcropping. Here the home could act as a perch overlooking the lake but through the trees and providing both a view and private enclave. Natural materials with a modern disposition were selected including Southbay Quartzite, American Granite, bluestone, western red cedar, and douglas fir beams incorporating both regional and durable sources.
A meandering path through the woods down to the lakeshore with its private beach allows the owners access to one of the most lauded summer vacation destinations in the country: Lake George. Inside the home however, the wooded clearing at the brow of the hill feels a world apart as a relaxing and peaceful place to retreat from the everyday.
