The owners of this incredible lot on Eagle Island, dividing Lake James and Snow Lake, asked us to help them with the design of a home that would do the site justice. With lots of issues such as wetland setbacks and a misaligned road with the platted right-of-way, the lot certainly presented Lynn with design challenges for the home as well as wending our way through the process of getting governmental approvals.
The result of the extra effort in design and permitting will be a gorgeous 2,446 sq. ft craftsman style two-story home built on a slab foundation. There will be 3 full baths serving 3 bedrooms. Most of the activity will center around the open great room and kitchen area on the main floor. There will also be a very large bonus room over the garage that can be used as a secondary activity center as well as for overflow sleeping on those busy summer holidays.
A 16′ four-panel sliding patio door will open onto a generous covered porch, which will have retractable screens when those mosquitoes make their unwanted appearance. Uniquely, there will be another quad patio door on the lake side of one-half of the two car garage. The intent is to have this garage space double as a guy’s hag out. The other side of the garage will be deep enough to allow for boat storage off season.
The entire exterior will be clad with maintenance free siding and manufactured stone. The interior will be nicely appointed with features one comes to expect in a lake home of this caliber. Its difficult to discern who is more excited to see this home completed, our company or the owners.
