Blue Lake Retreat By Lake Flato

Apr 20, 2017

Category: Living

Homes and buildings work best when they use their surrounding environments to their advantage. That could mean responding to an existing architectural style in a neighborhood – or, as the Blue Lake Retreat By Lake Flato does – reacting to its surrounding natural environment.

This three story tall home located in Marble Falls, Texas is perched on a steep hillside that plummets down towards the nearby lake. A bridge anchors the home to the hill, while the cantilevered deck sits comfortably above the tree line providing uninterrupted views of the water and opposite shore. Those same views can be enjoyed from inside thanks to the large floor to ceiling windows on the top story of the home. The bottom two stories feature two bedrooms each so friends and family can enjoy all of these same views in total comfort. And for those hot Texas days, the team at Lake Flato also included a lakeside deck because looking at water is fine, but jumping in it is better.
