Jefferson Lake Residence

This craftsman inspired residence was designed to take full advantage of the view and outdoor activities provided by the it’s lakeside setting.  A large detached garage provides storage for the boat, ice house and all other lake life necessitates, while the house focuses on capturing the view.The home is constructed of insulated concrete forms (ICFs) which will provide great insulation value in the Minnesota winters as well sound dampening and solid construction in case of natural disasters.

From the entry door with flanking sidelights your eye will be drawn through a large vaulted living room to a full wall of windows with views of the lake, the centerpiece of the residence. The dining room  and kitchen are open to the living room with even more windows adding light and a sense of connection to the outdoors. A large outdoor patio both covered and uncovered provide a wide variety of locations to enjoy the scene. The master suite takes advantage of the lake view with large windows and access to the large back patio. An office and large laundry room round out the master bedroom wing, while on the opposite side of the house two guest rooms and a bath provide the perfect spot for weekend guests. Single floor living, wide doorways and hallways and low rise at the entrances all allow this couple to age in place and make this their forever home.
