The owner of this stunning modern river house is an architect from Ohio-based MKC Architects who drew up the design for his house by hand. Situated along the picturesque Manatee River in Bradenton, Florida, this dwelling boasts breathtaking views and a serene setting. A true masterpiece, this award-winning dwelling was constructed with great attention to detail.

The home is designed to provide ample living space for the homeowner and their guests, with an open floor plan that seamlessly integrates indoor and outdoor spaces.

The homeowner, an avid swimmer, wanted to ensure that their love for the water was reflected in the design of the house. The result is an outdoor oasis, complete with a beautiful swimming pool and a separate lap pool.

Since the property is narrow, the architect/owner had to create a design that was long in skinny to maximize the property.

The dwelling was separated into two wings: the public spaces, including the kitchen, living and dining room, and the private spaces, including the bedrooms, bathrooms, media room office, and staircase. The division of these spaces into two separate sections allowed for soaring ceilings in the living spaces, while the sleeping areas are more practical.

The idea for the design of this residence was for a seamless transition from front to back. The project team accomplished this goal by creating a walking path that begins before the entrance and makes its way through the house between the two living zones and through to the backyard.

What We Love: The front elevation of this modern river house showcases a visually appealing composition of materials. The entry into this home is particularly noteworthy, as it passes through a courtyard, which is also accessed from the dining room. The backyard of this dwelling maximizes its location with an attractive pier design, which includes inviting outdoor living spaces and an upper-level deck that adjoins the home office.
