Welcome to a contemporary lake house with plenty of personality and an inviting feel! Envisioned by Carlton Architecture+Design and located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, USA, the Piedmont Residence takes advantage of the spectacular surrounding views, including a fascinating perspective over a neighboring mountain lake. Large window walls ensure openness and transparency, allowing inhabitants to bring the beauty of the landscape indoors.

According to the architects, “the entry level serves as the primary living space and is situated into three groupings; the Great Room, the Guest Suite and the Master Suite.The Master Suite is set apart from the others via a glass connector which provides privacy and opportunity for terrace and garden areas. The Master Suite is flanked on one side by an exercise room and lap pool on the other”. Wood was used in abundance, delivering interiors that are both elegant and welcoming.
