Guest House -- Ithaca, New York

1,400 SF | living room | bedroom | porch overlook | changing room
Set in a bucolic residential neighborhood in Ithaca, New York, this guest house sits atop an existing pool house foundation. Nestled across from an elegant brick main house and complemented by a steel and wood pergola, the guest house creates an intimate setting for an outdoor stone-terraced swimming pool court. The lofty, open plan house soars above the landscape, enjoying views of Lake Cayuga and the far hills beyond. With its clean white walls, black honed granite floors, and minimalist appointments, the house is a contemporary counterpoint to its natural surroundings. Picture windows frame views to the lake and bathe the house in natural light throughout the day.
