    The “Homeland” estate—the affectionate name for the summer home of the
    renowned opera singer Louise Homer and her husband Sydney—was built in

    the early twentieth century.

    The new owner wanted to maintain the historic character of the home while also
    cultivating a warm environment for family gatherings. Phinney Design Group

    utilized outdoor space to maximize lakefront views, incorporating a stone hot

    tub, outdoor kitchen, and screened solarium. The design team repurposed the

    carriage house into recreational space, including a gym, arcade area, and home

    theater large enough to bring the three generations of their family together.

    Because the owner plans to use this estate as a retirement home, the design team

    renovated a wing of the house into a first-floor master suite, allowing for single floor

    living.

    This renovation improved the home’s energy efficiency while restoring the
    historic windows and fixtures. Many original features were restored, including

    the oak floors, trim, and mouldings, while modern fixtures were added, such as

    lighting and fans.
