Inside an inviting lakefront home that communes with nature in Montana

modern-lake-house-exterior

Charles Cunniffe Architects in collaboration with Denman Construction have created this modern lakefront home that is nestled along Whitefish Lake, Montana. This lakeside property features over 150 feet of beach frontage, presenting unique opportunities and challenges, namely a stand of mature trees and a natural spring on the building site.

Instead of fighting with the notion of the mature stand of trees blocking the view, they were instead preserved. The project team gracefully yet meticulously designed the home to utilize the trees for privacy screening from the lake. They designed the rooms and windows around them to take full advantage of the views and afford the owners their desired privacy.

A dynamic exterior is balanced by undulating forms and varying rooflines. Glass, metal, and horizontal cedar rain screen siding and locally sourced stone wrap the exterior in a warm, contemporary interpretation.

Just steps from the water, an expanded outdoor living area with a built-in pizza oven, barbecue, and wood-burning fireplace provide year-round enjoyment.

As one enters the great room from the foyer, a wall of windows immediately focuses your eye through the home to the lake just a few feet behind the house. Natural materials were selected throughout the interiors. This includes locally sourced stone on the entry wall and dual-sided fireplace, white oak flooring and window trim, and neutral furnishings — all help to not distract from the awe-inspiring views.
