We have currently wrapped up a concept design for a couple’s lake retreat nestled into a wooded lot at Linn Valley Lakes. The project started a few months back with a site visit along with the client to determine appropriate positioning to maximize the lake views while maintaining some privacy. After several rounds of options, we have finally plowed ahead into development of the design.

The retreat’s main living space, kitchen and reading rooms all have magnificent views of the lake while both bedrooms have views of the nearby creek and waterfall. The over-sized windows serve not only to maximize the lake view, but to bring in an abundance of natural light – a key design feature that helps to really enhance the natural material selections for interior finishes of wood and limestone.

The retreat is a 2 bedroom/2 bath, 1,300 square foot modern work of architecture. It will be the first modern home on the lake and the client is looking to develop several other lots on the lake with a similar design. The client intends to break ground this spring.
