This Lakeside Home Is a Summertime Dream

This family home designed by Heather Garrett was made for entertaining—literally. Located on Lake Gaston in North Carolina, the home features an expansive wrap-around porch, natural-look swimming pool, and the pièce de résistance, a party pavilion built on what would be a boat dock. Multiple outdoor lounging and dining spaces make the home feel like a resort and can accommodate some pretty epic summer soirées. The second residence of a young entrepreneurial couple based in Chapel Hill, the new construction home is situated on two lots enabling for plenty of space to relax and host friends and family.
