A beautiful Bobby McAlpine designed home does not come around very often. Here is your chance to own one on Lake Martin just in time for summer! This home is featured in the book ''Art of the House'' by Bobby McAlpine and Susan Ferrier.This home has many unique features such as antique heart pine floors with wood walls and ceilings that is so natural it almost breathes. Triple hinged doors that open to transform the main level rooms into a screened porch that feels like you are in a tree house in the woods. The kitchen has rows of large casement windows opening to the surrounding landscape and a kitchen lounge that is as intimate as it is expansive that invites you to witness your surroundings in the company of family and friends. An eighteenth-century iron chandelier with vestiges of gilt is suspended high above the two-story living room with a limestone mantle wood burning fireplace that is home to a medieval- style pair of andirons from France. All the bedrooms are belted in glass resembling sleeping porches from days gone by. The architecture of the house is unassuming in style. Like a tree fort , it is camouflaged by color to remain unseen in the woods. This is the ultimate lake house that you will not find in suburbia. To quote the architect himself " There is a quality about the house that is as Saturday as can be. It is the day you made up all by yourself."
