Maximize a Magnificent Lakeside View
When your property overlooks a gorgeous lake, you might as well maximize the view from inside your home. This couple had a sloping wooded lot and wanted a custom home that captured the natural feel of the surroundings.

We answered with a 4800 square-foot, all-brick, two-story home with attached three-car garage and wraparound front porch. The slope in the back permitted a walkout basement and double-hung windows in the rear foundation wall. This created a feeling of a lower level rather than a basement, which prompted the owners to finish off that area.

Expansive glass walls on the first and second floors in the back were designed to capture spectacular views of the surrounding woods and nearby lake.
