Enchanting stone house with rustic and modern elements on Lake Keowee

modern rustic lake house exterior

Peter Block Architects in collaboration with Westbrook Interiors have designed this stunning lake house retreat that blends rustic stone and modern elements, nested on Lake Keowee, South Carolina. This dwelling was created for a pair of empty nesters to host gatherings, big and small. 

Designed to evoke the grand camp clubhouses that graced the White Mountains for generations, this home evokes a sense of timelessness. Spanning two-and-a-half stores, this English Arts and Crafts style stone house is nestled into a hillside. Its lower-level bar boasts expansive arched windows that overlook the swimming pool patio.

We would like to take a minute to thank all of you for sharing our posts and for pinning the pictures. Thank you for your continuous support. We truly appreciate every one of you!
