Back of Lakefront Home With a Saltwater Pool & Lounge Area
This 4,000 square foot retreat on Lake Gaston in rural North Carolina features an inviting pool and plenty of space to lounge outside in the sun or shade.
Outdoor drapery helped blur the lines between indoor spaces and exterior porches filled with upholstery, swings and places for lazy napping next to the saltwater pool, all keeping a fresh, clean and neutral palette. And after the sun goes down, the party moves to the lakeside fire pit.
As soon as they step through those double doors, the owners leave the desert behind and enter a gorgeous European garden. With blooming perennials and bushes all along the side of the house, they'll have no problem stopping to smell the roses.
