Cliff Falls House
Sitting with a commanding view of Lake Keowee in upper South Carolina, the 2014 Southern Living Custom Builder Showcase Home celebrates the lifestyle of the lakefront community of the Retreat at Cliffs Falls. Dillard-Jones had noticed a trend where people want to downsize a little bit, maybe simplify their lives. Their Cottage group division brought high quality focus to smaller footprint homes.
This classic and timeless lake cottage designed by Dillard-Jones overlooks tranquil Lake Keowee. The ambiance of the lake lifestyle is mirrored in many areas of the home. From the outside, it is designed to look like an old lake home with brick and stucco, hand hewn stone, and some timber. Inside, there’s an open and versatile floor plan. The main living area is accented with wood beams highlighting a touch of nature. A vaulted screen porch ceiling with a cozy fireplace can enhance any gathering. Throughout the home, Marvin products were used to accent the warm lake home interior. Large uninterrupted spans of glass take advantage of the lake and mountain views. Dillard-Jones combined multiple Marvin product lines to maximize value and manage project budget. With lots of outdoor living areas as an integral part of the design, like an outdoor kitchen, screened porch, stone fireplace and outdoor fire pit, Marvin was chosen for energy efficiency, low maintenance, seamless transitions and open and airy views.
