14th Annual CRA WINNER!
Bill Rudis and Jaime Bonke live in Timberlake Plantation on Lake Murray. Their impressive home has a stunning view and outdoor living including a swimming pool and 300 square foot slab. Besides a little bit of covered patio on the home, there was no good place to relax or entertain outside and enjoy the views afforded by the lake and pool. So, they decided they wanted a 1,200 square foot pool villa added on the property, and they contacted Gallup & LaFitte to develop the drawings from their ideas.
They wanted the new villa to handle entertaining year-round and it had to open to the pool and the lake, each in different directions. Upon listening to the clients thoughts for the villa, Gallup & LaFitte quickly realized this would be like building a 1,200 square foot piece of furniture... lot's of detail and attention in every inch of the space. But, this company is very good at that sort of thing, so it was a welcomed challenge.
The pool villa would have extensive use of stacked stone, tile, granite, beams, copper accents, and 12 built-in, high-end appliances. It would also have a 400 bound wood burning stone pizza oven next to a 2-story wood burning stone fireplace. The main attraction are the three sets of massive sliding doors that, once open, bring the outdoors in, making the villa perfect for a pool party!
The new addition included a beautiful pvc deck and a new pool shower as well. The structure is the ultimate pool and lake villa and is sure to serve up smiles year round!
