DESCRIPTION

Meeting with Bob & Sandy for the first time, I could tell they had lots of family memories at their old cabin. Their cabin had been added to a number of times, as many are on Lake Martin, and the family had outgrown their old cabin, filled with memories. They wanted to remove the old cabin and re-build a new one, Bob wanted to make sure that we saved as many of the mature trees as they had on their beautiful lot. We carefully measured & re-measured all the trees they wanted to save.

With that information, we were tasked with designing a large, new home on a site with big trees. The lot has a western sunset view, on a large secluded slough & we wanted to take advantage of those sunsets. The giant vaulted ceiling family room & porch allowed for tall glass & slide doors out to the porch with all amenities, a big stone fireplace, a trellised grilling porch, wide stairs out to the beautiful grass & treed lot, ample space for family & games. We also designed a fire pit nestled in the trees for cool nights & marshmallows.

The guest room has a tremendous view of the lake, on the main floor. The kitchen features a corner window glass above a corner-mounted sink, Sandy wanted a huge eat-on prep island, and we designed a large pantry with an appliance counter. The wood ceiling with flat cedar beams contrasts the lighter cabinets in the kitchen. The wood feature wall in the dining adds an interesting texture to the large lake-view windows.

We designed the master with a large corner, lake-view windows & plenty of space for reading or relaxing with coffee in the morning. The master bath features marble tiles with a soaking tub with a lake view, with his/hers walk-ins and a large glass shower there is plenty of room to unwind.

The upstairs feature 3 bedroom/baths, all with lake views, a balcony that looks onto a massive vaulted family room, and a unique second-level den design, we created what we call, an inverted pyramid ceiling, for built-in shelves & TV backdrop, the den has plenty space for a game table or video gaming for the youngsters.

DESCRIPTION

This project was designed to be placed on an existing point lot, with existing mature trees that Tom & Christy did not want to lose. We removed the existing cabin owned by Waydynne Bolton Bishop, then designed a new home around the existing tree locations. We loved the challenge of Tom & Christy’s vision, designing a new home to take advantage of this Lake Martin legacy property’s full 300-degree view lot. First establishing the location of huge trees, we designed a large vaulted family rm, with a large over-sized stone fireplace, and a beamed vault ceiling that continues out thru a big covered porch with views on three sides. Stunning two-story entry with a bridge overlooks into the family room. The open kitchen/dining allows plenty of room for large gatherings, and the beautiful countertops and expansive island makes for a great morning cup of coffee with the eastern sun rising thru the multiple windows in all rooms. Tom loves to cook, so we designed an outside grilling station, close to the kitchen, for convenience. Christy imagined that the master suite has the look of the existing cabin, so with salvaged beams & barn wood, along with designing the master suite a little off from the main body of the house, we were able to give an old look to a new structure. With the master wing off to one side of the lot, we designed the oversized garage on the opposite side of the lot, therefore providing some bit of privacy on this open point lot, without closing off views of Willow Point golf course. Above the garage, we designed a sort-of zen/craft space for Christy’s eclectic styles, with enormous views of the lake.
