What this new 2,000 square-foot vacation home may lack in scope, it more than makes up for in rustic beauty and pure authenticity. Overlooking serene Lake Cherokee, this home fits naturally, appropriately into the shoreline landscape. It is both a celebration of the outdoors and a tribute to Craftsman-style construction, appointed with special touches the homeowners insisted upon. Tremendous 12-by-12 hammer trusses support the roof with nary a nail. A multitude of oversized windows invite the outdoors in. And paints and finishes were chosen from historic palettes found in the area. Even pieces of the brick and stonework were reclaimed from a beloved grandfather’s cabin that had burned years earlier. The Lake Cherokee Home has the solitude of a deep wooded getaway and the lakeside social appeal that all come to enjoy.
