French Country


The homeowners came to me with impeccable taste and a vision for a large family home with endless entertainment possibilities. We worked together to decide on needs, wants, and priorities, I got to know their individual style and was ready to design their dream home.

Positioning of the home was crucial to take advantage of all this site has to offer. As I worked, I kept in mind the views of the lake, Tennessee hills, golf course, and the direction of the sunset. The house sits on a hill and is curved to take advantage of the landscape, wrapping around the natural elevation. The view from the front door looks straight through the house to the lake view at the rear of the home. I chose 14 foot ceilings and an 11 foot tall sliding door system on the first floor to accentuate views and maximize natural light. The master suite sits upstairs for privacy and to take full advantage of the stunning views, and the second story covered porch off of the master feels like a private retreat right in the treetops. I focused on luxury and privacy when designing this master suite, and the bathrooms, closets, and elevator system make this space truly feel like a resort.
