It is one thing to have a waterfront home, but it is another to design it yourself. A custom home can take on any structurally feasible design, which can lend oneself to a wild imagination. A waterfront custom home plan that makes the most of the views is a great house. If you are in search of a few ideas, you’ve come to the right place! Check out these lighthouse home designs and more with Shore-Line Construction!
A Lighthouse-Themed House
A lighthouse-themed house has more design options than you might think. It could have a lighthouse-like structure attached to one corner or side of the house, complete with windows, a balcony, and an exterior that would make it look like a lighthouse. Inside, it could include a spiral staircase with a landing on each floor, or simply a nook on each floor in which to enjoy the views.
Another option is to include a square tower or turret with a pyramidal roof. This formation can be on the front, side, or center of a house. Some houses have a lookout turret of such a shape at the top center of the house. It gives any house a modern look with its clean, straight lines.
A Loft Lookout
Some house designs capture the waterfront views via an interior approach rather than with a bump-out like a lighthouse tower or modern lookout turret. You could also integrate a loft into your house. The loft can be as large or as cozy as you please. It can span the width of a lofted living room or connect to a main staircase landing.
The loft could be the perfect spot for window framing a beautiful view. Include a window seat, a couple of comfortable chairs, or both. Add a side table and a bookcase or a few if you have room.
A Vista Indoors
Yet another interior design you could use is to make your windows the focal point of the room. Plan for large windows that go from wall to wall and reach the floor. Position a long couch facing this view. You have the beginnings of a beautiful spot in which to enjoy your gorgeous waterfront views!
