French West Indies Exterior

Affectionately referred to as "La Belle," this French West Indies-inspired home feels a lot like paradise, complete with a private pool and lakefront views. A soothing blue and cream color palette invites guests to step inside this relaxing retreat. 

Backyard View With Private Pool

Designed to soak in the best of indoor and outdoor living, this single-family home includes floor-to-ceiling windows and glass panels to the backyard. There, loungers and a private pool create a sweet escape. 

Flowing Floor Plan

Stepping inside the home becomes an ethereal experience with walls, floors and furniture washed in white. Where the crisp hue makes the space feel open and airy, dark wooden accents offer rich contrast and ground the setting.

Living Room With Tropical Flair

In the living room, vibrant orange accents pair with floral patterns and plants to give the contemporary space a tropical twist. A woven rug below adds rich texture to the smooth floors and separates the living room from the adjacent areas. 

Sliding Doors to Outdoor Space

A sliding glass door connects the living room to an outdoor seating area, where four cushioned chairs and a wooden coffee table provide a tranquil space for watching the sunset. 

Outdoor Space With Waterfront Views

Thanks to an extended roof overhead, the outdoor sitting area allows for entertaining no matter what the weather. Just across the way, guests can enjoy sparkling views of the pool and lake. 

Neutral Breakfast Nook

Wooden furnishings bring warmth and texture to this neutral breakfast nook, helping to connect the interior to the great outdoors. Surrounded on all sides by glass walls, this space is perfect for eating breakfast while watching the sunrise.

Durable Outdoor Kitchen

To the left of the breakfast nook, a fully furnished outdoor kitchen allows for year-round meal-prep and entertaining. With stainless appliances and expansive grill, the small space is both sleek and durable.

Hallway Infused With Earth Tones

Taking a left leads guests into the hallway, where a wooden console table and green ottomans create a warm, makeshift workspace. A gilded mirror above maximizes the walls and helps the small area feel larger.

Master Bedroom With Tropical Details

White walls and linens ensure that this contemporary master bedroom feels as bright and airy as possible. Where patterned pillows and drawers add subtle visual interest to the space, brown accents keep the room warm and relaxed, much like a tropical oasis. 

Adjacent Master Bath

With windows on both sides, this master bathroom is rich with natural light. Two vanities give each of the residents a space to get ready, while a chest of drawers behind keeps clothes and other necessities neat and within reach.

Indoor-Outdoor Soaking Tub

For a truly immersive indoor-outdoor experience, the home also includes a half-bath with clear views of the water. Here, a free-standing tub allows for a leisurely soak, with curtains that can be opened or closed for privacy. 

Private Deck for Entertaining, Sunbathing

With four wicker chairs and two loungers, this private deck definitely encourages afternoon sunbathing. Potted plants along the edge balance the industrial-style rails, as well as bring earthy color and charm to the smooth setting. 

Deck Overlooks Private Pool

The most impressive view within this waterfront home is from the second story deck. From here, you can see the private pool, boat landing and the gorgeous landscaping below. 

Seamless Transitions to Backyard

Thanks to broad arches and sweeping overlooks, these outdoor living spaces easily flow into the rest of the backyard. Potted plants along the first and second floors ensure that the two spaces visually connect. 

Private Pool Meets Boat Deck

Just steps away from the pool, a small boat deck floats gently on the water, ready for the next adventure. Tropical landscaping along the pool's edges further the feeling of a private paradise. 

Cushioned Loungers

After taking a quick dip in the pool, four cushioned lounge chairs are available for sunbathing or an afternoon snooze. Large trees nearby provide much needed shade.
