The home's sitting room was designed as a comfortable reading spot for the homeowners. Within this space, they are able to catch views of the waterfront, while the space's eastern exposure allows for warm morning sunshine all year long.
This gorgeous home was conceptualized in response to the site: a small lot with close adjacent properties and 100 feet of lakefront with mountain views. By intensifying the view and obscuring the periphery, architectural designer Kristen L'Esperance successfully magnified the site's strongest asset.
Landscape architect Jason Brownlee designed this outside oasis to mirror the circular design of the Mediterranean-style villa but added modern touches to accentuate the view. This ebb and flow design features a reflective, infinity-edge pool in black onyx with terraced water features that allow overflow to be caught in spa basins below. The perimeter overflow system allows the pool to level flush against the travertine floor of the upper patio and helps to frame the view for a continuous water-to-water illusion from pool to lake.
This contemporary rooftop deck, which boasts its own herb garden and sweeping views of the lake beyond, serves as a quiet getaway for relaxation or intimate conversation. A factory cart table is a nod to the industrial style that's carried throughout the interior of the home.
Rising gracefully up from the hillside, the two-story house includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms and two partial baths. Balconies wrap around the buildings offering up plentiful outdoor entertaining spaces and gorgeous lakefront views.
Dark stained concrete flooring used indoors continues out to the home's deck. A steel and glass railing encloses the space, and an outdoor sofa and pair of armchairs provide comfy seating to take in the lakefront views.
Designed as a second home, this 10,000-square-foot luxury estate has a Mediterranean-inspired design that includes a tile roof and stone accents on the facade. Inside, every room is strategically situated to capture lakefront views. A cobblestone drive provides access to two parking pads and a four-car garage.
Two walls of built-ins rise to the peaked ceiling of this contemporary, third-story library. Chairs are sited to make the most of the room's lakefront views. A collection of Suzani blankets inspired the room's design and color palette.
A fire pit surrounded by seating creates a cozy spot to relax beside this breathtaking lakefront view. The infinity-edge pool and hot tub are surrounded by square glass tiles, which draw the eye and create a colorful focal point in the neutral space.
Strategic design equals stunning effect when considering Jason Brownlee's landscape plan for this lakefront property. Seen from above, the three-tiered, infinity-edged pool in black PebbleSheen onyx provides a dramatic contrast against the subtle tones of the patio and Mediterranean-inspired home while maintaining the contours of the radial theme of both the home and its location. From the ground, however, the pool highlights the lakefront view and gives the illusion of a water-to-water continuous connection.
Landscape architect Jason Brownlee took one look at this lovely Mediterranean-inspired home that is situated at the end of a lakefront peninsula and drew inspiration from its radial core and natural surroundings and created a work of art in this outdoor design. Not only are the sculptured angles of the patio, walkway and railing reflective of the circular architecture of the home, but also in the masterful design of the infinity-edged pool and interlaced catch basins, giving this outdoor space a sense of magic in motion. The design shows passion with purpose and invites the homeowner to enjoy the outdoor pleasures of this home's dramatic but inviting character.
Although this patio is perched 13 feet above the lake beyond, Jason Brownlee created the illusion of a continuous and direct connection to the water by designing a pool and spa feature that aligns perfectly with the waterfront view. The infinity-edge, reflective pool that lay flush against the perimeter of the travertine patio helps to reinforce this optical illusion and allows the flowing curves of the patio design to define the space.
