Designed specifically for this lovely home site in southwest Ft. Wayne, Lynn and the homeowners have created a home that will take full advantage of the gorgeous pond that abuts this property. The topography of the site allows for a daylight basement that includes windows with sufficient length to give the feel of living space above grade. One of the four bedrooms in this home is located in the basement along with a recreation area and tons of unfinished storage and future flexible-use spaces.

This home recently constucted in New Haven is a second generation design by Lynn Delagrange. Originally built as a villa in New Haven, the plan and exterior design was tailored specifically to the needs and wishes of the owner. This 3 bedroom home is universally accessible in the main portion of the home and the master suite area as well. Views of the large pond in the rear of the home can be enjoyed from the sun room, nook, great room and master bedroom.
With instructions from the owners to preserve the abundant natural beauty of the property and to provide maximum area for outdoor living in the design, Lynn was turned loose to design what we feel will be among one of the most gorgeous lake homes in northern Indiana. With private decks for the three bedrooms on the 2nd floor and the wrap-around veranda on the main floor, there is certainly no shortage of exterior space to enjoy the jewel that is Big Long Lake. An over sized see-thru fireplace divides the multi-sided sun room from the great room and views of the lake are in abundance from these areas as well as most rooms in the home. A full "lake bath" and the super-sized laundry room are smartly located just a step inside the lake-side door. The large bonus room over the garage provides space that is available to use in any number [...]
After generations of serving the family well the existing cottage, it was decided, had seen its finest days and it was no longer feasible to be refurbished adequately. The family determined that a totally new cottage would be the direction in which they would proceed and contacted Lynn through references, to help in the design and construction of the new lake cottage. As is the case with virtually all vacation homes, the owners wanted an emphasis placed on sleeping capacity as well as adequate bathroom facilities. This 2,241 sq. ft. 6 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath one and 0ne-half story home on a walk-out basement ( 1,180 sq. ft. finished ) meets those requirement very nicely. Taking advantage of the unusally large lot, a super-sized composite deck will be built to allow for spectacular views along what is referred to as Clear Lake's "Gold Coast". The deck will be constructed in [...]
