This homesite on beautiful Syracuse Lake presented not only design challenges but will also be somewhat difficult to construct. With very narrow access at the road the lot widens as it approaches the lake and provides a very generous lake yard. Being mindful of the minimum side yard, lake and street setback requirements Lynn designed a home that fully meets the needs and wishes of the owners.
When complete, the home will have 2,675 sq. ft. of living area above grade and 1,105 sq. ft. of living area on the walk-out basement. Of the five bedrooms, two will qualify as owner suites. There will be a large office above the two-car garage and a large recreation area in the basement as well as an open kitchen and great room on the main level.
A large exterior deck will be accessed from the great room as well as an exterior stairway. A clever use of space will be the lake-toy storage area under that stairway. The recreation area in the basement will open onto a patio under the deck that will serve as a screened porch when the retractable screens are deployed.
The exterior of the home will be clad with fiber-cement siding and composite trim as well as manufactured stone. The home will be conditioned with two separate highly efficient gas furnaces and air conditioners. The home will have a whole-house gas generator to provide electricity to all lights and appliances in the case of a power outage.
