Take a look around the Sawyer log home – it shows how to capture the best of a lakefront

This modern log cabin was constructed by esteemed builders, Expedition Log Homes. The perfect lakefront location is captured by the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, numerous deck areas, and a large screened porch which can easily house a full dining set.
The Sawyer log home has a spacious layout covering 2,283 square feet (212.1 square meters). The floor plan includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a generous open-concept great room.
Taking a look at the house from the rear, we can see how the commanding wall of glass and elevated position combine to perfect the views of the lake.
The light-colored log walls contrast nicely with the vibrancy of the tree-top and lake views which are visible through massive windows.
The assertive stone fireplace reaches all the way to the ceiling of the double-height great room, creating an attractive and functional centerpiece to the home.
The stylish kitchen is finished with gorgeous green-stained cabinetry which appears modern, yet in keeping with the overall rustic theme of the home. A stout stone breakfast bar creates a psychological barrier to the room.
Adjacent to the kitchen is ample space for a full dining set. The glass doors lead to the screened porch.
The porch perfectly balances indoor/outdoor living with panoramic views of the surrounding woodlands. It is ideal for informal meals without the hassle of dealing with pesky flies.
The master bedroom is located on the ground floor of the home and features access to the master bathroom. The sliding glass doors lead to a private master terrace.
The loft space hosts two further bedrooms and a second bathroom. Open to the great room below, this soaring ceiling allows plenty of fresh air to circulate around the home.
The upstairs houses large bedrooms which benefit from the high ceiling. They have enough room for rustic furniture sets, meaning this home is ideal for big families and large parties.
The house includes a path which leads down to the lake. Anyone fancy a swim?
