MODERN HOME BY THE WATER

This lakeside home employs a modern version of the prairie style, featuring strong horizontal lines that run parallel to the water’s surface and link the architecture to the surroundings. The tall central portion of the home employs vertical elements in order to appear more dramatic and monumental, even though the south side of the home is only one-and-a-half stories tall. The property slopes gently towards the water, so the rear walls rise a full two stories above the terraced back yard, with more steps down toward the water.

In addition to the ample indoor living space, the home features a sprawling terrace, with outdoor living and dining areas as well as an ornamental pond. A short flight to stairs leads down to the beach.
