This modern mountain home was beautifully designed by Mittmann Architect in collaboration with Edward Smith Construction, perched above Coeur d’Alene Lake, Idaho. The homeowner’s principal residence is in Houston, Texas, so their goal for their vacation home was to bring a dose of Texas Hill Country style to Lake Coeur d’Alene’s SunUp Bay.
Standout features are everywhere you look, from the tile wall behind the kitchen range to the shiplap paneling throughout; the reclaimed timbers from Louisiana to the use of stone indoors and out. Toss in a copious amount of marble and you will notice a carefully considered home, providing a gorgeous mix of traditional and contemporary elements.
Nestled on a forested four-acre-plus property, this dwelling was sited to highlight breathtaking views of Lake Coeur d’Alene from just about every room in the home. The property also includes more than 400-feet of water frontage with a boat dock, ideal for the homeowners who are a nature loving couple.
What We Love: This mountain modern lake home fulfills the owners vision of a light, airy and relaxing getaway. Floor-to-ceiling glazing highlights the majestic views of the lake through just about every room. From the customized details to the fresh and airy material palette, this home has a timeless appeal that makes for an idyllic escape. Overall, we are loving the aesthetics of this home — a beautiful mix of mountain modern and Texas Hill Country with a hint of glam.
