Tucked away in the woods, this pretty Scandinavian-style cottage allows its owners to escape from urbain life. Designed in a rectangular shape to blend in well with the steep terrain, it offers 1,800 sq. ft. on two floors with a large open area on the ground floor and three bedrooms on the garden level. The south facade, with its abundant windows, offers a spectacular view of Lake William and the surrounding mountains. The steel roof and the coloured door add dynamism to the clean lines of the house. For more information.
