"Designed to accommodate a growing family and close friends, this lake-front compound includes a 4,500-square-foot main house with 50-foot lap pool, an 1800-square-foot three-bedroom guest house, and a barn. An aggregate of smaller, informal living spaces carefully composed to disguise the bulk of the building and create a variety of views and experiences, each structure centers on a great room open to the northern water views and the southern sun and breezes. The structures combine modern design with the local gabled vernacular of cedar shingles and white-painted wood: large expanses of glass, painted pine board walls, exposed structural trusses, gray-painted pine floors, and driftwood-clad storage elements that subdivide the interiors" Robert Young Architecture 
What a beautifully designed and inviting space and I love the idea of various components carefully linked together to create such a wonderful home to share with family and friends.
I love the kiddies room too with the bunk beds and bright polkadot rug. 
All the subtle hues and colours and use of natural products creates a carefree environment to enjoy the picturesque scenery and natural beauty.

Montauk Lake House was designed by Murdock Young Architects and completed in 2007.
