This informal lakefront home sits on an existing lake developed in the 1970’s. Design emphasis was placed on developing a tailored “lake” home as opposed to a suburban home on a lake.
On the first floor, service areas were placed on the street side and the living, kitchen and master suite were zoned on the lakeside with maximum views of the water. The second floor contains two bedrooms and a bath, plus a lookout room for entertaining and enjoying the higher elevation perspective overlooking the lake.
The covered back porches allowed for outdoor living without exposure to inclement weather and the front porch was a throwback to earlier decades where homeowners could greet visitors.
The exterior transitional design used classic materials of natural stone, board and batten siding and IPE decking, while the interior surfaces were painted cabinetry, cypress woodwork and hickory flooring.
