Crisp and simple, that's Shingle-style architecture in a few words. Creating a 5,500-square-foot masterpiece of Shingle-style architecture--a little piece of Martha's Vineyard on a picturesque Canadian lake--took a careful eye for details. Besides the profusion of its namesake cladding, Shingle style is known for restrained ornamentation.
On this home, adornment consists of a mix of square Arts and Crafts and round Tuscan columns, a stone chimney, and an arched window with a decorative grille.
Drawing on the New England vernacular, the execution is pitch-perfect. Or, in the case of the multigabled roof, pitched perfectly.
