This is a customized version of the SeaNest model designed by well-known local architect, Chris Stoyles, at Archiscapes, for a family from Tupelo, MS. This is a second home for this family and they wanted a place to enjoy extended trips to the beach and be able to bring family and friends with them. This new home was designed to work with its beautiful lakefront homesite in Forest Lakes and take advantage of the views. It has double decker porches on the back side of the home which allow the owners to enjoy the outdoors just as much as the indoor space of this home.
This 2-story lake house has a lot of attention to detail and the owners did a great job with their selections both inside and outside! Like many of the homes in Forest Lakes, there is a front porch where you can be outside and visit with friends and family. This home has a 1-car carport with outside climate controlled storage. The inside space features 10′ ceilings upstairs and downstairs. The living area has the Nano doors which open up to allow the living area to flow right into the downstairs screened porch area. This makes for a big living space and there is an outdoor gas fireplace and tv mounted outside above the fireplace. Off the downstairs screened porch is an open deck space with gas hookup for their grill.
The kitchen in this home is just awesome and features custom shaker-style cabinets, upgraded stainless appliances, gas cooktop, built in microwave and oven, and quartz countertops.
This floorplan has a guest bedroom and private en suite bath on the first floor for those who don’t do stairs. There is also a powder room off the living area for guests use.
Upstairs are three more bedrooms, each with their own private en suite bath. The Master Bedroom is situated on the back side with access to its own screened porch. It is a nice extension to the master bedroom and they hung up an outdoor bed swing so they could get into full comfort mode!
This family was a pleasure to build for and we really enjoyed working with them to help make their beach house dream come true!
