The Montauk Lake House, designed by Robert Young Architects, stands out in an area filled with mansions. The home was designed to be a place where a family could grow and entertain guests. While it may not be one of the giant homes, it\u2019s still a beautiful addition to the area.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMontauk Lake wasn\u2019t always a destination. It was Carl Fisher\u2019s vision of turning the largest freshwater lake on Long Island into the \u201cMiami Beach of the North.\u201d Fisher blasted a hole in the northern shoreline to connect the lake to Block Island Sound, which connects to the Atlantic Ocean. On Star Island, an island in the lake, Fisher built the Montauk Yacht Club and the Star Island Casino. Soon, golf courses, manors, a playhouse, and more popped up around the lake.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Montauk Lake House took a different tact, opting instead for simplicity. The 4,500 square foot main house is accompanied by an 1,800 square foot guesthouse, a 600 square foot barn, and a 50 foot lap pool. The buildings plenty of room for growing and entertaining. Young incorporated the traditional look of the area with a weather-worn look, thanks in part to the cedar shakes, exposed trusses, gray-painted pine floors, and driftwood clad storage options. Views of the lake and surrounding area abound, and occupants and visitors will have plenty of places to admire.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
