We’ve just wrapped up design on this Lake Martin home that sits on one of the best lake lots we have seen. Located on a peninsula in a quiet area on the lake, the land still holds 2 original stone chimneys that belonged to the original site’s cabin. The design of the home started around the larger of the 2 chimneys and in an attempt to preserve the historical aspect of the site and provide visitors with a unique story and experience, we decided to let the chimney be the start of the design. From the start of the entry drive into the site, visitors are on axis with the chimney and begin to experience it first thing. As they arrive closer to the home and walk towards the front door, the chimney greets themas they walk past small intimate garden and patio space towards the door. The site will also feature several walking paths to various hang out on the site including the sunset peak patio, a bocce ball court game area, and a boat house.
Opening up the home to the 180 degree views was also a very important feature of the home. Corner windows open rooms up and provide stunning close range and long range views in all rooms of the house.
