Location:  Monticello, Indiana                               Project Type: New Home

The family owned this beautiful piece of property on the lake and wanted a home where they could spend weekends relaxing, boating, and water skiing. The resulting home is so inviting, they now live there almost all of the time. Incorporated into the floor plan are spacious living rooms with lake views, and also a separate mother-in-law suite that provides a little privacy while still being in the middle of family activities.

The large, expansive covered porches provide a fabulous space for relaxing or entertaining, catching nice cool breezes and providing beautiful views across the lake. The one of a kind porch railing was made by the homeowner and provides the perfect accent for these fabulous outdoor spaces.

The Monterey / Low Country styling was at the homeowner's request. It is unique to the area, but blends in perfectly with the lakefront setting. The upscale brick and metal standing seam roof add just the right amount of elegance. Streetside, nestled below an exciting loft space, the stylish, natural wood garage door is bracketed by period coach lamps. Together they create a beautiful approach and a perfect fit among the surrounding neighborhood homes.
