The owners of this home are aviation enthusiasts and so it made sense to locate their home close to an airstrip. The home site they found was not only near an airstrip but adjacent to it with a private taxiway to the runway. This allowed the owners the luxury of having the hangar for their airplane attached to the home. A few years after completion we were contacted by the owners to do an unattached maintenance barn which is pictured in this gallery.
This two-story home was built for a growing family in the Angola area. With substantial input form the owners, Lynn designed this eclectic beauty using a mix of a lake home plan previously constructed and incorporating many of the owner’s ideas that are found in year-round residences. A combination of brick and thin veneer natural stone was used for the majority of the exterior with the remainder of the outside being fiber-cement siding. The very beautiful 27 acre lake can be viewed from the kitchen, nook, great room, master bedroom and screened porch. There are also views of the lake from the exercise room and game room located in the lower level walk-out.
The owners of this home were interested in a rural setting yet liked the benefits of subdivision living. They were able to have the best of both words by finding a partially developed lot in a small subdivision in northern Allen County. With large lots and relatively few homes, this suited their requirements nicely. Along with the owners, Lynn designed this two-story home to compliment this beautiful country setting. We were invited back by the owners to construct an unattached garage / man-cave using the same exterior materials that were used on the main residence.
After deciding that remodeling the existing cottage was too extensive and wouldn’t achieve exactly what the owner was looking for, they decided that demolishing the cottage to make way for this beautiful lake home was the correct approach. This home was co-designed by Lynn Delagrange and Brad Conway (deceased) as a year round residence and is truly a one of a kind masterpiece.
