The special details in this lovely home were designed to be achieved by taking advantage of drywall architectural elements. This house was originally intended for lakefront property so in order to pull the water view into the house the pool was designed to come up next to the house. The porte cochere allows for easy unloading of passengers or supplies without being affected by the elements. The open kitchen is easily accessible from the family room, but sufficiently detached from the dining room to preserve the atmosphere of formal occasions. If work requires after-hours peace and quiet, the combination den/study near the master suite is away from the main flow of traffic but close to the foyer for business visitors. The nearby bath allows it to become a guest room. The family room can be incorporated into entertainment plans for large groups by opening the interior to the rear pergola and pool with the sliding glass door wall. An upstairs observatory introduces more bedrooms and baths. The garage was specifically designed to allow for extra work space for the mechanic in all of us.
