Inspired by generations of design along the shores of Lake Martin. Kennebec combines the elements that have made lake retreats draw us back to water for generations.
To help buyers get started, Nequette Architecture & Design and the LakeTown development team have created plans designed specifically for two Kennebec lots. The one above is designed for homesite #10 and the other, pictured below, is for homesite #27. Both are available to buyers, have well-developed floorplans and been preliminarily priced for construction.
Contact the Kennebec development team to learn more about these plans and tour the sites.
8 Essential Elements of Kennebec Design
- 1 to 1 1/2 story masses that hug the landscape
- Collection of building masses connected to great courtyards and outdoor spaces
- Lower pitched roofs that reinforce horizontality
- Outdoor living spaces that seamlessly connect to indoor rooms
- Native materials with a neutral color palette
- Large expanses of glass at prominent spaces of the home
- Lakeside porches and balconies to great views
- Exposed structural details on interior and exterior (brackets, beams, etc.)
The research of styles along Alabama, and other predominately Southern, lakes offered wonderful sources of inspiration – most notably houses variously categorized as Adirondack, Shingle, Cottage, Craftsman and Folk or Farmhouse. Together, these more traditional and recognized styles combine to create what we are calling Rustic Luxe, unique to the vision for Kennebec. No one specific style should be used and a creative interpretation and incorporation of all the styles by a design professional is important in the design of homes at Kennebec.
As a buyer at Kennebec, we want to help you design and build your dream lake house. Below are some architects we know can help you develop your own Kennebec home.
