ABOUT THE Split Rock Modern Timber Frame (T00436)

Situated on a picturesque piece of land on Candlewood Lake, this home is a perfect complement to the stunning views and surrounding landscape. Combining the rustic ambiance of a timber frame house with a nod to Asian architecture, Split Rock has a wonderfully modern yet cozy feel.

The front door of the home leads into a small entryway which is open to the great room. Open tread stairs take you to the loft/balcony above. Timber floor-beams protrude from the balcony and have been left in their natural square form, a style borrowed from Japanese architecture, which adds to the simple elegance of this home.

Inside the home’s great room you can see how the wall of windows takes in the light and views of the lake beyond. The kitchen, which opens into the dining room, features a large central island. The island is finished with natural wood tones and a butcher block top. This contrasting treatment, combined with the island's feet, makes it feel more like an additional piece of furniture in the room than an extension of the cabinetry.

The rear of the home boasts a wraparound deck ideal for lounging and enjoying the spectacular views of the lake. There is also a covered screen porch to enjoy during drizzly weather or when bugs prove to be a nuisance.
