Lake Coeur d'Alene Residence #3
On the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene, Mittmann Architect and Edwards Smith Construction were tasked with the design and implementation of replicating an old lakeside estate – something reminiscent of the early 1900s. The owners were extremely committed to the historical accuracy of their vision, utilizing lichen-aged stone and reclaimed logs and timbers sourced from across the United States. Contributing to the estate’s ageless beauty are masonry walls, gas lanterns, wall sconces and stone paths. A hand-crafted, winding handrail guides family and guests from sleeping cottage to sleeping cottage. Just a few of the many memorable spaces include an outdoor covered barbecue and fireplace, the sitting room between the master bedroom and office and some 21st-century fun in the form of a beachside bar and pickleball court. Complementing the design and build – an array of sumptuous furnishings coordinated by Garrett Oiness of IVY Gift and Home.
