I left a part of my heart and soul in this custom build on Lake Norman… the owners and their beautiful children were such a joy to work with. This three level walk-out home on the Lake has everything I could ever wish for in a good design: graceful exterior lines accented by nicely contrasting elements of stucco/stone/cultured stone/brick/metal/wood… my personal love of lighting shines through in this home as the homeowner was equally enthralled with going outside the normal confines of lighting selections. Metallic paint in the girls' bedrooms/master suite/powder bath/girls' playroom bath/office give that subtle shimmer without going overboard… Italian hardware throughout the kitchen/pantry/scullery (we used 24 different styles of hardware throughout the house)… the island is a custom color I developed to play as an ambiguous shade versus going the normal route of an espresso island… This build was completed in 2012 and we are still in the process of tweaking the interior design with the furnishings. This home is the epitome of custom… from the moulding profile to the exterior lights handcrafted by artisans. In pictures this home is lovely… in person, it's breathtaking!
