There’s no boat at the dock, but this lakeside retreat still provides the quiet enjoyment that its owners require. McClellan Architects had to overcome numerous obstacles in order to build a stable and aesthetically pleasing home on the lake. The lakeside retreat is located on a steep incline. In order to compensate for this, McClellan Architects signed a concrete platform and a set of front steps that will help to provide a more level work site. The entire front of the home is open. Open windows, an open front patio and a large sliding glass door that leads to a secondary wing of the house. Inside, the house has a decidedly Art Deco feel to it. Funky statutes lounge lazily alongside the soaking tub while looking out over the lake.
