Shingle style houses found in New England's seaside resorts at the turn of the century inspired the design of this family vacation retreat. Situated on a wooded point overlooking Lake Norman, the homes asymmetrical lines and stone and wood cladding blend naturally into the landscape. From a dramatic two-story dining room at its center, the plan curves gently toward the lake, affording light and panoramic views to both wings of the home. In a playful touch, a blue light in the roof-top cupola has become a nighttime landmark for the lakeside residence. One of a kind in every way, Lake Norman's most prestigious home by award-winning architect/designer redefines success with extraordinary details and craftsmanship. This home sets a new standard of luxury with a unique private lakefront peninsula on 650 ft. of shoreline. The home is perfect for entertaining with a true gourmet Chef's kitchen, a 24-seat dining room with dual crystal chandeliers, a 2-story window over the lake and a 19th century replica fireplace. The adjacent family room features a full view of the lake and a stone fireplace. A luxurious master bath, spacious his and hers closets and a cozy reading area with surrounding views of the lake complete the master suite. The oversized guest rooms include a charming children's bunk room. Other highlights of the home include a 4-car show garage that doubles as a party room, 1500 bottle wine cellar and wine dining room, artist's studio, screening room, billiards/shuffleboard room, infinity pool, and outdoor living room with a 3-story stone fireplace. Of course, no home on the lake would be complete without a boat dock. This is a masterpiece better seen than described.
