The Projector house is an award winning, architecturally designed, lakeside retreat.
The home is a 2,600 s/f, 3 bedroom, family residence turned vacation home. The home was built in 2012 on Thompson's Point, a shoreline peninsula on Lake Champlain in Charlotte, Vermont.
Full lake access. Fishing poles and 2 kayaks available for guest use. Bikes can be provided upon request.
Excerpt from Houzz Tour: Flexing New Design Muscles on a Vermont Lake-
"The main living room acts as the public meeting space, while a guest bedroom on the same floor has access to the outside, making it feel like its own suite. The master suite upstairs has its own den and balcony.
To instill a sense of cohesiveness, she came up with the idea of a projector, the intent being that the home would force visitors toward the view of the lake and blur everything else. Guests enter a low-ceilinged mudroom of sorts before stepping down a few concrete steps to the main living space, which expands vertically to a double-height ceiling. The walls also expand about a foot. “So as you walk toward the view, even the view enlarges because of the angles of the walls and ceiling,” she says...
L’Esperance wanted the new home, which is now her residence, to be something that could accommodate multiple vacationing families and couples in summer. So she arranged the rooms with privacy and multiple function in mind. “I wanted people to be able to spend a week there and still have break-out spaces so they didn’t feel like they were up in each other’s business the whole time,” she says. "
The ipe deck wraps around the 3 south walls of the house with additional decks off the master bedroom and connecting the two structures on the second floor. The second floor breeze way has a hammock for lounging in the constant breeze created by the adjacent buildings."
Full access to house and lake with exception of garage and storage space
