This Lake Burton jewel began with the siting of a new home and boat house on a point of land historically known at ‘the statue of liberty property’. With expansive views across the lake the owners agreed the home should be sited away from the lake edge. This allowed the existing tree canopy to be retained and provides picturesque views from the house and lake. The most dramatic site design element is the re-alignment of the drive to capitalize on lake views and create an immediate sense of privacy and seclusion once the property is entered. A sweeping drive through a mountain laurel thicket brings you to the beautifully detailed rock home with commanding views of the lake.
Garden Architects crew meticulously constructed the boulder walls, water feature, rock terraces, steps and paths throughout the property blending the beautiful rock home with an equally beautiful property. A native plant palette accented with hints of the owners Louisiana background dress the garden and provide seasonal interest.
