WaterColor’s Lake District draws its undeniable provenance from a rare coastal dune lake to the south and protected state forest lands to the north. Between the two is High Street, a continuation of the landscaped water axis that runs the length of town, culminating in the Beach Club. At the corner of High and Flatwood is one of the last remaining homesites along this defining corridor — a space that begs for a layering of generously proportioned wraparound porches and radiant sunrooms to engage comers and goers in either direction, while at the same time allowing more than enough room for privacy, and maybe a pool, within. It is also one of only a few on which the Guide for the Creation of Phase III “vigorously encourages” a tower as both design element and vantage point from which to capture the southerly views. To the rear is a wooded conservation buffer with simple gravel footpath that meanders lightly through the native landscape. All neighboring construction is complete and comfortably scaled.
Whether you’re looking to create a rare space with modern sensibilities or something more traditional, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a site with a more compelling combination of natural and built elements around which to fashion your WaterColor dream home. The WaterColor Design Review Board has simplified the process of building, especially from afar, by making all resources — from Approved Architects and Builders Lists to forms and contacts and schedules — readily available on the WaterColor Community website.
