Sometimes the best way to know what you still desire in a luxury home is live in it for a while. And that is just what the family that built Hidden Treasure did. After moving into their new, beautiful home in 2015, they spent the next few years enjoying every part of it, but realized there were some features that they still desired.  

The way the home was situated and the distance from the lake, they were not able to have a lower level. In their past home, they loved to entertain in the lower level that held a bar and family room. They also enjoyed home workouts in their gym. The owners brought their desires to Colby Construction, and quickly a plan was drawn up to make their needs a reality. 

The Hidden Treasure… A Custom Lake Home Addition

In order to follow county and lake ordinances, the team had to be creative with the space available. The addition would also take away space to park so that needed to be brought into consideration as well. The current home and the addition were creatively tied together with a new entry that allows for access from the back (garage side) and the front (lake side) of the home. Once through the entryway you are led to the existing homes family room or to the new entertain addition.  

The expansive, stunning addition features a 2-story bar and seating area. The bar includes a small kitchen and plenty of seating for casual family dinners or entertaining friends and family. As wine aficionados, a wine cellar was also a must for the new addition. The walk-in cellar, encased by glass doors is a stunning work of art and conversation starter. Utilizing the space upstairs, a home gym was added to the space. A perfect place for every member of the family to workout. 

After they hit the gym, the steam shower is the perfect reward for their hard work. This gorgeous space features under cabinet lighting and a bench that expands into the steam shower. 

Every detail of this addition was thoughtfully designed, from the sink to the bar backsplash to space for practicing a golf swing. The ceiling features shiplap and stunning chandeliers. The owners love to design and decorate and expertly selected every piece for the addition themselves!  

Without question, the custom lake home already was a “Hidden Treasure”, but the new addition makes the name truly perfect.
