The design objective for this home was to create a personal expression of a home with both visual and physical connections to the lake. Set back from the street, it allows for a specific, planned arrival sequence that commences with entry through a custom-designed gate. The experience continues as visitors proceed to the covered entry and the oversized entry door. The home features a layered roof which provides large overhangs for protection from the harsh summer sun and high clerestory windows which allow beautiful natural light to flood the interior. The orientation of the home captures stunning views of the lake, close and distant mountains, and the golf course from all main livable spaces. The entry door is the first of many incredible connections to the lake, overlooking a raised four-sided negative edge spa and a 37-foot-wide negative edge pool. The great room, entertainment/game room and master suite all contribute to the lake experience with large sliding glass doors which expand the interior livable space into an indoor/outdoor experience like no other. The second level features a terrace with spectacular views of the lake and beyond. Each upper level bedroom shares the same amazing views.
