From the grand front entrance of the massive glass and black metal door your eyes take you straight through the 24’ wall of glass to the lake. You literally feel like you can run and jump into the lake from the front door. Glass panels on the patio provide a seamless view to the water giving the feeling of stepping right onto the water. Glancing over to the left you will be blown away by the custom designed and fabricated 19′ lineal fireplace with an industrial picture framed metallic powder coated metal surround.

The builder incorporated a smoked mirror to create depth and warmth. This amazing, unique fireplace was designed and constructed by the builder and project manager. Steel beams were extracted from a local cotton mill built in the 1940’s and were installed as ceiling beams in the basement as well as the fireplace. Two massive slabs of live edge poplar wood were installed as both a floating hearth/bench at the fireplace and also surrounding the island creating a super fun yet unique and very functional area to sit and enjoy a meal or relax by the fire.

For the stair treads the builder used 4″ white oak treads cut from a local farm to support the local sawmills. The builder and project manager designed, fabricated and installed the open tread, glass panel, iron railing 3-story staircase. In the basement you will again find the incredible automated 24′ sliding door, super modern tile fireplace surround, metallic epoxied concrete floors & incredible steel beams over head flanked by warm stained wood and sleek modern light fixtures.

Custom cabinetry thru out stay consistent with the modern feel of flat panel door styles and clean design. The focal point of the lower entertaining space is without a doubt the authentic bank vault door dating back the 1950’s that the builder personally found and drove to Ohio to remove and transport to NC. This amazing vault weighs in at a hefty 100lbs shy of 10,000 lbs. and was lowered and set with a crane before framing. Smart technology engulfs this home making every day life simple and stress free.

Two Google assists wall mounted IPads control the entire home including, two 24′ automated doors, Sonos sound, thermostats, Haiku fans, security, swimming pool and lights.

Without a doubt this entire home will blow you away at every turn from the incredible one of a kind wood pieces, to the steel beams, fireplace and massive bank vault door and smart house technology. Simply put this home is a bad ass, show stopping, mouth open, one of a kind original…To say the builder out did himself is an absolute understatement. I invite you to come see for yourself.
