Guild B Home Tour

City Cottage - 418 North Lake Street Double Dutch doors welcome visitors to a profusion of color. This charming home, built in 1958 and renovated by Bainbridge architect Bob Hobbles and the current owner, is a tiny private museum of wonders. The inviting living room brims with patterned fabrics and unusual artifacts from around the world - lithographs, lamps, ceramic chickens, and ornamental crosses. Built-in bookcases lend warmth and interest. Note the Doric column between the living and dining areas. The remodeled kitchen is bright with polished copper cookware, shimmering tile, and the artful placement of a mirror to harmonize and enlarge the visual space. European pine furniture in the master bedroom, shuttered windows, and a screen on the wall behind the bed lend a cottage atmosphere. The guest suite includes a sitting room with a carefully refinished barn door to add texture to the wall and a striking vintage poster. The spacious bedroom with its unusual iron bed frame and ensuite bath, leads out to the garden. A large paved patio off the dining area runs the length of the house. It includes a gracious seating area, dining area, and space for the hot tub. Beyond, the stone walkway leads to a free standing, custom-designed artist’s studio complete with tile floor and French doors.
