Remodel maximizes views of lakefront home

Located in an exclusive golf community on a lakefront lot, the homeowner wanted to improve the home's flow and create large, comfortable living spaces for a growing family while maximizing views of the lake. Interior walls were removed and room placement adjusted. A second floor addition provides a master suite with exercise room, office, private den/media room and a balcony. The staircase's glass balustrade includes a removable baby gate made with a single glass and metal panel. Space for a future elevator was incorporated in the foyer's stone column as a coat closet covered by a barn door.
