Waterfront Retreat

2014 COTY Grand Award: Custom Home Over $1,000,000

Clients approached KohlMark Group to design a waterfront home on the ridge of a steep, heavily wooded site with spectacular river views 75 feet below. KohlMark created a unique timber frame structure utilizing natural materials including stone and wood, designed to evoke a park-like setting with water views on three sides. Two timber-frame pavilions flank the drive, creating a stunning entry feature and covered parking. A stone patio and covered timber frame porch enhance the home’s connection to abundant nature and wildlife.

Outstanding Features

  • KohlMark carefully preserved trees, perfectly siting the structure for a tree house effect.
  • Large windows capture unparalleled views on three sides of both water and unspoiled woodlands.
  • Timber frames of douglas fir are present in five areas of the home.
