Black Rock Custom Home
This 6,000 square foot, 4 bed, 4.5 bath custom home in the Black Rock community on Lake Coeur d’Alene, melds contemporary design with nature by using materials of steel, glass, wood and stone. The primary challenge presented by this project was the multiple wall-length expanses of retractable glass throughout the house bringing the expansive lake view and surrounding nature into the home. Structural steel framing was used to provide the support needed for this beautiful design. This home was built by general contractor, Matt Fisher under Ginno Construction. Matt is now building luxury custom homes as owner and president of Shelter Associates.
Along with the steel framing of this Black Rock home, this lifetime steel roof offers outstanding load-bearing ability for the sometimes heavy snow of northern Idaho. Though the steel and glass throughout the design offer a contemporary edge, the home integrates nicely into the surrounding nature with the natural stone and wood materials throughout.
This sleek contemporary kitchen is bright and cheery with quartzite countertops, an island containing 2 sinks, built-in fridge, microwave and dual ovens. With the extended gas stove-top, this kitchen is perfect for entertaining the guests…or just whipping up a quick meal for the kids at the counter.
The entire lake side of this modern home and guest house offers floor-to-ceiling glass walls and creative terraced landscaping for minimal maintenance.
This expansive view of Lake Coeur d’Alene fills the wall of this Black Rock living room whether the floor to ceiling glass doors are closed or open. The view is enjoyable in any season with the sleek gas fire pit (mirrored off the adjoining guest house) nestled just off the living room. The stairs to either side lead the way to the putting green and walk-out basement patio.
This custom-created, built-in wet bar with quartzite counter, offers all the hidden amenities to entertain the guests in style.
