Old Mission Manor
In the presence of greatness. That’s how one feels walking up to this home. From every angle one discovers a new appreciation for architectural design. Designed in the tradition of classic northern summer homes from the turn of the century, this one ascends to another level. Once in the entry, straight ahead the lake beckons from just beyond the wide living room with its massive field stone fireplace. The staircase to other levels is appointed with box newels, curved handrails and delicate dowel balusters. Beyond, each room is unique, carefully crafted to have a separate personality. The combination kitchen/dining nook, with its own fireplace and beefy timber rafters and skylights creates a stimulating ambiance more invigorating than daybreak coffee. Underneath the hardwood floors throughout the house is a computer-controlled hydronic heating system that allows for comfort level adjustment in each individual room. With too many details to discuss here, suffice to say that this home exemplifies the integration of classic beauty with state-of-the-art technology.
