The home's exterior façade uses a mix of high-end building materials, including the custom blend of Polar White Clear and Yukon Blend brick, to significantly impact the look and overall feel. The architect's attention to detail and the builder's attention to their craft are apparent in all aspects of the project. Not only does this home feature brick on the exterior, but it also incorporates the stunning Antique Colonial molded brick to the home's interior in the Four Seasons Room, which makes its view of the lake even more breathtaking. Brick is carefully laid in Flemish and running bond with soldier courses around windows and recessed brick detailing, accentuating the verticality of the house. The transformative texture of the brick creates delicate color variations – in some lights, it appears soft white, and in others, light tan, creating something beautiful with its surroundings and emphasizing the timeless feel.
When we asked the homeowners about their experience collaborating on the design of their home using Belden brick, here is what they had to say:
The views of the lake from our property are spectacular. We confirmed this by having our builder erect scaffolding to the height of the first floor so we would see the views before the first brick was laid.
