More about Zurich Homes

I couldn’t have asked for a better day to shoot this lake home. While it was really windy on the water, the light just looked absolutely beautiful. I shot the interior first and came back a few weeks later once the landscape was complete. What an amazing home.

I was lucky enough to see the entire construction of this house – start to finish! I shot it a few times along the way – once when it was snowing! I am always just as excited as the homeowners when they move in! I really appreciate seeing the details throughout the project along with a completed build.

Built by Zurich Homes, this custom lake home lies on the shoreline with a direct view of a marina and a distant golf course. Located within Fairfield Glade, a popular community just east of Cookeville, this home sits within a tight-knit community with several resort-like amenities including beaches, hiking trails, lakes and Tennessee’s best golf courses.

Along with a dock, the backyard also features a rocky beach with a very East Coast feel. It’s the perfect depth to set up an outdoor chair in the water.

Several unique design choices make this home feel totally tailored. The varied landscape seamlessly blends into the tree line. The homeowners chose to incorporate large boulders along the shoreline to create the illusion it is a part of the natural terrain. A continuous sound of light waves can be heard, and in the afternoon, when the sun sets, the light shimmers across the water.

Inside, a full length, sliding patio door make it possible for the outdoor screened deck to be combined with the open-concept living room. Made to entertain, both the indoor and outdoor space feature a lofty fireplace.
