Treehouse at Santeetlah Lakeside

Santeetlah NC

In North Carolina’s Smokey Mountains is Lake Santeetlah, 90 percent of its shoreline lies within the Nantahala National Forest, ensuring its unspoiled nature for decades to come. The Treehouse, the first model for Santeetlah Lakeside, has 2800sf plus 1100sf of outdoor decks and built within a canopy of old oak trees with cantilevered decks jutting into the branches. The developer’s fondness for Lake Placid and the Adirondack style of architecture inspired him and the architect to develop a design style they call ” rustic mountain lake architecture”, which reflects a blend with styles of the Appalachian region. Anderson came into the project during framing and was instrumental in the final design and selection of interior finish materials including slate, hickory flooring, oak cabinets with arts-and crafts detailing, kitchen granite counter tops polished in work areas but with smooth-rough texture and broken edge detail to pick up the wilderness character on the bar top.  We also designed all the interior and exterior lighting to hi-light the wonderful materials. The back to back living room and exterior living room fireplaces are stacked Cherokee stone and mantelpieces of beetle-kill pines. The furniture was selected from local furniture stores in the area using a Fall color palette.
