3506 Lake Mendota Drive.

Located on the Shorewood Hills side of Lake Mendota. The timber siding of the home is unassuming from the exterior. But then, as soon as you step inside there’s a major wow factor. You can’t view this property without the words “sleek” and “clean” coming to mind. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out on the waterfront. A corner gas fireplace gives the living room an interesting depth. Built-in bookshelves look like they were made specifically for an impressive record collection. It’s the kind of home that makes you want to wear a kimono and always have a martini in hand. This home could double as an art museum, but an art museum where it’s ok to take a Roman-style bath next to a double-sided fireplace.
