2019 National CotY Award Winner, Entire House Over $1,000,000
The clients wanted to expand and modernize their new, but dated, two-story lakefront home to enhance the lake views, without making the house look pretentious. An extensive update included renovations to the kitchen and baths, construction of two massive, stacked-stone fireplaces, and an addition. The centerpiece is an expanded, 38-foot by 25-foot great room with 270-degree lake views, a 19-foot cathedral ceiling, and a three-story-high exterior glass wall. The open floor plan features wide walkways of warm, reclaimed pine connecting a dining room, family room and fireside library with amazing lake views from every corner.
