Piedmont Residence

This modern lake house is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The residence overlooks a mountain lake with expansive mountain views beyond. The design ties the home to its surroundings and enhances the ability to experience both home and nature together. The entry level serves as the primary living space and is situated into three groupings; the Great Room, the Guest Suite and the Master Suite. A glass connector links the Master Suite, providing privacy and the opportunity for terrace and garden areas.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

As in a lot of houses today, the living room, dining room and kitchen make up one large space. Carlton nevertheless uses the structure and built-ins to break down the scale of the space and provide some special moments. In addition to the steel frame giving some rhythm to the space, a low and long cabinet in the lower left corner provides storage and a place for art. Crafted locally, like the door and island, the steel looks impossibly thin to be in such a configuration.Steel and wood are also used in the built-in storage and window seat in the corridor past the opening here. This creates some continuity between the two spaces, while making the corridor a place to be, not just a place to walk through.
