Located on a closed equestrian training and boarding facility near Roanoke, this home, like the rest of the property has been given new life by the owners. Having built a home and cottage for these loyal customers, they requested our help once again to refresh this home so it could be occupied by the manager of the facility. The building was solid for the most part but certainly had areas that needed attention functionally as well as aesthetically. Among the work that was completed were projects such as adding a roof over the main entry, re-roofing the entire home and adding some stone wainscoting and other exterior embellishments. The interior was updated with brand new custom kitchen cabinets and granite tops, refurbishing some existing hardwood floors that were covered with carpeting and repainting the entire home.

With the unique challenges that seem to be commonplace for lakeside building sites this lake home now recently completed on Lake James was designed by Lynn to take advantage of what this site had to offer. The two-story Contemporary Mediterranean provides 3,880 sq. ft. of living area with a two-car / one-boat garage. Accommodating a large amount of guests at the same time was an important consideration and is provided for with the 4 bedrooms in addition to the large bunk room and 3 1/2 baths. The oversized kitchen, dining room and great room provide more than enough space to make entertaining a breeze. A strategically place sun room allows for a nice little lake side get-away.

The owner's dreams of country living are fulfilled inside and out with this beautiful Cape Cod home located in southeastern Allen County. Working closely with the owners, Lynn designed this home to function nicely and yet take advantage of the views of a wonderful private pond in the rear yard. The home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths with an exercise room and unfinished bonus room on the 2nd floor.
