Designed by Jay Corder Architect, this house is a blend of casual lakeside living with a sophisticated design aesthetic, located in the city of Horseshoe Bay, Texas. This spectacular lake house was designed on its site to maximize the views towards the lake from almost every angle.

Rough materials were reinvented and crafted to blend these notions. Site slope was a major factor in the overall design and site plan of the house. A series of terraced living spaces was carefully fitted into the landscape to react both to the house and to the terrain.

It was important not to block any of the lake view but still  minimally impact the steep site. The main house opens up to the terraced outdoor living areas and the series of porches adjacent. A bridge connects the house and upper lawn areas to the  boathouse in both a dramatic and functional response.

What We Love: This home offers casual lakeside living with beautiful details throughout… and of course, mesmerizing views. A relaxing home offering plenty of space to comfortably enjoy spending time with family and entertaining. From the eye-catching stone fireplace in the living room to the spectacular views off the dining room, every space has something to offer.
