The new happy homeowners now have incredible views to take in morning, noon and night, but also get to enjoy a lifetime of fun lakeside living activities.

The brand-new custom home project features a one-of-a-kind exterior with a modern farmhouse look complemented by traditional accents. The exterior façade boasts several mixed materials and textures that seamlessly come together to create a cohesive look. The home features board and batten siding, natural wood columns, floor-to-ceiling windows, shingle siding, matte black fixtures and more.

Immediately inside, the homeowners and any future guests are welcomed by soaring ceilings with natural wooden beams paired with crisp white features, including the ceiling, walls and trim.
