Fun in the Sun

The brief for this project was ‘a little of something for everyone.’ For a single dad and his kids, this lakeside Lakeville home is a play and entertaining mecca replete with a deck that spans the length of the home, a bar under a pergola with a pass-thru window, two large screen TVs, spa, chaises under another pergola, ample seating for everyone and dining for al fresco meals. The above/in-ground pool features one-of-a kind engineering to comply with city requirements, and the customs lighting and lake-access steps mean the fun doesn’t stop at the deck.

The front of the home features a custom brick-built post box and gracious plantings that hug the front exterior. This ‘business in the front, party in the back’ landscape build meets everyone’s criteria for endless summer days of play together.
