JLF & Associates in collaboration with Big-D Signature designed this beautiful rustic sanctuary located in Santa Fe, a community in Maury County, Tennessee. This 3,400 square foot home offers the perfect escape from everyday life. Secluded by nature in in the heart of Tennessee, the home consists of four distinct living areas connected by a footbridge; including one space built on part of the neighboring lake. This dwelling is complete with private access to the lake, an outdoor seating area, fire pit, and a swimming pool.

The homeowners desired a unique feature as part of the property, so part of the house extends onto the adjacent lake. Portions of the project were built in the neighboring lake. Local and state regulations didn’t allow construction of a cofferdam, so the sturdy stone columns were built as separate panels on the shore and then attached to steel piles driven into the lakebed.

“This house is a serene and homey retreat. The building, with pitched roofs of Corten steel and clad in stacked limestone and reclaimed siding and timber, consists of four segments, or living areas, each connected by a footbridge,” states JLF & Associate.
