Cazenovia Shingle Style Residence

Cazenovia, NY


This formal, shingled lakefront residence is derived from the historic shingled houses built on Cazenovia Lake over a century ago. In the same traditional blend of shingled exteriors, asymmetrical gables, and Colonial Revival details as its stylistic cousins on Long Island, in Newport, and in Maine, it evokes the elegant yet relaxed atmosphere of a previous era. This house is arranged in linear fashion, with all major rooms having panoramic views of Cazenovia Lake. Most rooms benefit from natural light and air from two sides, in the classic summer house style. Interior detailing is simple and understated in the Colonial Revival tradition, while providing a strong, unifying, and scale-giving presence.
