Set on a twenty-five acre island in the middle of Lake Oconomowoc, this Shingle style home serves as a retreat for the owners and their family. Arranged around a cross floor plan, covered and screened porches extend from each side of the house to offer 360 degree views of the surrounding water and forest. The kitchen and main living areas lie at the center, which serves as the family’s gathering and entertaining space. A 1,300-square-foot guest cottage designed in the same style sits adjacent to the main residence.
