Dubbed as the (not so surprisingly!) this fabulous home draws your attention instantly thanks to its unique silhouette and a dashing street façade. Combining two high barn-like structures with a glass pavilion the beautiful home seems like an effortless blend of the modern and the traditional.
As in the case of the 10 modern home designs that we featured earlier we are ending our journey across the best lakefront homes exactly where we began: on the banks of. The Madrona Private House has a street façade that is specifically designed to keep away any prying eyes while the rear of the home offers some extravagant views of the scenery outside. Warm earthen tones coupled with grey are used inside and the public spaces are housed on the top two floors to maximize the views.
When we talk of lakeside homes the first image that comes to mind is of traditional or modern retreats that borrow from the classic cabin style. While some of the remarkable lakefront residences that we already showcased challenge this stereotype this fascinating home in Carinthia by Spado Architects shatters that myth completely! Minimal at every turn this house employs translucent white glass panels and concrete to merge privacy with unabated lake views.
An open-plan living area complete with a dashing contemporary kitchen and an ergonomic dining space make up the heart of the top floor. Connected with the balcony outside through sliding glass doors this entire space offers unabated views of the distant ocean. A master suite en-suite and walk-in closet are neatly tucked behind this living area.
Despite embracing a contemporary style an indoor-outdoor interplay is the defining feature of the house and ensures that the homeowners are always connected with the natural goodness that surrounds the house. Even the living area is extended outdoors with a that is connected with the rest of the house visually. Sliding glass doors and clear story windows usher in ample ventilation while decor additions like the Eileen Gray side table elevate the overall ambiance of the home.
The street façade of the house itself is draped in trendy stoic grey and its design ensures that there is ample privacy. Large wooden doors lead to the front porch that charms with a Zen-style landscape complete with a beautiful pond at its heart.
The new living area dining space and kitchen are housed in an open floor plan on the lower level and open up towards the beautiful deck outside. Large sliding glass doors ensure that the transition is seamless while the modern extension in the rear holds additional living spaces as well as three bedrooms that are visually connected with the backyard. The transition between the old and the new structures is indeed effortless as one room flows into the next. An additional top level contains the new master bedroom and bath along with a walk-in closet and a private deck area.
