A blissful lakeside escape in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains

transitional-home-exterior

This historic lakeside escape renovated by Allard + Roberts Interior Design is located on Lake Lure, a beautiful man-made lake nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The goal of this remodel and addition project was to maintain the historic aesthetic while enhancing usable living space with the addition of a covered indoor/outdoor living area, increasing views, updating the primary suite, and adding a lower-level guest suite.

The design team space planned the interiors, elevated all walls, designed fireplace surrounds and built-ins, custom bathroom vanities, ceiling details, and shiplap accents, selected and specified all fixtures and finishes, and furnished and decorated each room. This was a second home for the owners who reside a few hours away.

While the site is incredible, the views of the lake and mountains were obstructed by sliding doors and tiny dining room windows. The deck was only accessible through the Sunroom and Kitchen, but not the main living area. A Nanawall system of sliding and stacking doors now opens up the main living and dining space to the new screened porch, complete with a stone fireplace and a TV. Indoor-outdoor living is possible year-round with this new layout.

The old Sunroom sliders were removed in favor of a cased opening. New picture windows beyond allow a view through from the Living Space. Three separate areas are combined for better views, a new furniture plan, and indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.

With this newly updated home, the owners can entertain and enjoy their getaway home (soon to be full-time residence upon retirement), with views of the lake and mountains from almost every room.

What We Love: This lakeside escape provides a welcoming respite with peaceful views of both water and mountains. Comfortable furnishings promote relaxation for both inhabitants and their guests. We are loving every detail of this home, from the serene color palette to the harmonious flow from indoor to outdoor living spaces. The four-season screened porch is especially wonderful with its fireplace and perfect setting for entertaining.

The primary suite renovation of this lakeside escape includes a large bedroom, bath, and closet. Glass French doors open to the Sunroom so that the view can be enjoyed from the main bed. When the doors are open, the lake views are visible, but when privacy or light control are needed, the custom traversing draperies close across them.
