View of House Exterior From Lake

Set up on a small hill, the house commands great views of the lake. A bridge leads over to a private dock and boathouse. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff

Exterior Covered Patio and Lake View

The lake seems to start right at the edge of the patio, where long twin sofas and a roof overhead make it possible to enjoy the view rain or shine. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff

Exterior Rustic Balcony With Lounge Chairs

Along the home's upper level stretches a generous balcony, wide enough to comfortably manage several seating areas, all offering sweeping lake views. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff

Rustic Patio with Fireplace

Fun details fill the house with personality, like the rope swing and fireplace on this covered porch and the round porthole-style window in the nearby library. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff

Neutral Rustic Family Room With Stone Chimney

To keep the open, airy feel of the living room, the ceiling reaches up two stories tall, with the rustic stone chimney getting pride of place at the head of the room. A large brown leather ottoman is a chic, efficient and durable coffee table. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff

Neutral Country Kitchen With Copper Range Hood

A copper range hood and rust red herringbone backsplash give handsome panache to the kitchen. Slipcovered barstools are a comfortable, yet practical touch. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff

Neutral Rustic Foyer With Black Chandelier

Double doors swing back to reveal the foyer which takes rustic style in a graceful direction: The ceilings are exposed wood slats and the chandelier and sconce feature single antlers painted black. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff

Gray Country Play Room With Bunk Beds

This play room is the stuff dreams are made of. Pale gray paneling and a soaring ceiling give the space a lighter-than-air feel and the bunk beds are delightful hidey holes with their own private curtains. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff

Neutral Transitional Master Bedroom With Round Ottoman

In the grand master bedroom, floor-length curtains call attention to the sky-high ceilings. Lots of plush, rounded surfaces, like the ottomans, are an easy way to make a room comfortable as well as family friendly. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff

Built-In Window Seat With Drawers

This window seat comes with tons of storage: drawers built in beneath the cushion and nooks just right for baskets. For an added bonus, pull off the accent pillows and the seat becomes a cozy bed. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff
