The New American Home: Introduction

FRONT AND CENTER: A dramatic stair-tower entry opens to a center hall that leads visitors through a pair of patio doors to the pool deck and the lake beyond, exemplifying the the view-oriented, light-filled design of the entire house.

LONG SHOT: Highlighted by a two-story turret that encompasses a grand staircase at the main entrance, the front elevation mixes a variety of elements and detail to keep the eye interested across its considerable breadth.


LAKESIDE: The rear elevation is as playful as the front, bookended by the master suite and stacked loggias that help shield the pool terrace while preserving dramatic and expansive views of the lake from inside the house.

WATERWORKS: A curtain of water from the top of a trellised roof (left) encloses the master suite terrace, partially obscuring a propane fireplace while adding one of several dramatic effects to the pool and spa.

INSIDE OUT: The back elevation is anchored by stacked loggias, both of which feature kitchens. The downstairs loggia also has a fireplace and TV, as well as convenient access to the family room and a full bath inside, behind the kitchen setup.
