Overlooking Lake Algonquin in New York lies a cozy farmhouse from the 1800's. The farmhouse has been renovated and modernized, but the spirit of the original building remains. Even better, the views haven't changed -- the house offers unforgettable views of the lake. Especially remarkable are the views from the second-floor master bedroom.
The kitchen, dining area, and living room area are all open with no walls separating the spaces from each other. The wood countertops match the hardwood floors.
The countertop extends outward to provide a bar seating area for small, casual meals.
A wood stove keeps the house from feeling too modern. The entire room has a beautiful view of the lake.
In the upstairs hallway, a reading nook provides entertainment for rainy or cold days.
The master bedroom features slanted ceilings, and a remarkable view of the water.
It wouldn't be a farmhouse without a porch, and this sleeping porch wraps around the rear of the house.
This view from the master bedroom shows off the natural beauty of Lake Algonquin.
And for days with perfect weather, nothing beats being a stone's throw away from the water!
