Lake Keowee: Smith Private Residence traditional-entry
 

Lake Keowee: Smith Private Residence

With its cedar shake roof and siding, complemented by Swannanoa stone, this lakeside home conveys the Nantucket style beautifully. The overall home design promises views to be enjoyed inside as well as out with a lovely screened porch with a Chippendale railing.

Throughout the home are unique and striking features. Antique doors frame the opening into the living room from the entry. The living room is anchored by an antique mirror integrated into the overmantle of the fireplace.

The kitchen is designed for functionality with a 48” Subzero refrigerator and Wolf range. Add in the marble countertops and industrial pendants over the large island and you have a stunning area. Antique lighting and a 19th century armoire are paired with painted paneling to give an edge to the much-loved Nantucket style in the master. Marble tile and heated floors give way to an amazing stainless steel freestanding tub in the master bath.

The door was drawn by the architect and custom ordered from a company in Texas. It is a simple door and would be easy for any door manufacturer to replicate.

If you are referring to the stone on the exterior of the home, it's a Swannanoa Stone veneer in an Ashlar pattern.

There is a reflective tint on the window, though this home is in a rural location.

Unfortunately we do not have the floor plan to share, however the house was designed by Mel Dias and Jim Seward and built by Gabriel Builders.

The cedar shake on the house is Sherwin Williams Blue Shadow stain. The cedar shake roof doesn’t have a stain or color. It has weathered naturally.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This house’s front area works with the design elements of the rest of the house and effectively uses the principle of odd numbers. The dormer, strong horizontal lines in the stone base and low, swooping rooflines make the pair of windows on either side of the door necessary to keep the horizontal element. By mimicking the trio of windows above the door, the entry gets a boost in height and a strong sense of classical balance. The total effect is comfortable and approachable.
