Everything about this spectacular lakeside home in western Montana is dedicated to relaxation—of the mind, body, and spirit, and also to the eye. Nestled into the hillside, which slopes down to the shore of the beautiful Georgetown Lake, the retreat keeps an extremely low profile while drinking in the views from every possible angle. The design even incorporates several half-staircases to keep the home flowing—like water—with the site.
Warm timber beams flow through the interior, opening the core of the home to a picturesque landscape beyond. In fact, nearly every room of the 4,593-square-foot, five-bedroom home has access to a unique outdoor living space. The rear exterior boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and doors at every turn, including massive bifold glass doors that fully open in the great room and master bedroom—marrying the peace and tranquility of the lake with the coziness of the interiors. The indoor-outdoor theme continues with a patio area that runs the length of the home along the rear and tucks around the side to create a courtyard off the master suite.
In addition to its stunning design and awe-inspiring surroundings, the home is also highly energy-efficient—multiple features cut down on energy expenditure, including south-facing windows and doors, structural insulated panel building envelope, and radiant floor heat—further honoring and connecting it to the site.
