This cedar-shake house in Alexander City, Alabama in Tallapoosa County, south of Birmingham and north-east of Montgomery, is a weekend retreat on Lake Martin.
Designed by L. Mitchell Ginn and Associates and Liz Williams Interiors , and built by TCC General Contractors for a family as a lakeside getaway, they envisioned a home with lush landscaping and terraced lawns.
The exterior of the house with arched gable trusses and battered stone columns provide a fanciful storybook feel. This private lakeside paradise includes a waterfront infinity-edge swimming pool, a waterfront deck and a private boat dock.
Inspired by the lake, soft blue hues and neutral palette flow throughout the interior. The formal living room features a soaring wood ceiling, white shiplap walls, a stone fireplace and picture-perfect view of the lake. The large windows inside and covered porches frame the dramatic scenery.
