Project Description

Rio Oro Residence

Located on the shores of Lake Norman, this Cape Cod style family home feels warm and inviting while uniquely displaying unparallel views of the water.

Hired by a builder for this spec home on an irregular site that sat vacant far after the development was built out. RdM Architecture configured a delightful two-story New England style Cape Cod house of 2,200 SF taking advantage of the views of Lake Norman and its spectacular sunsets from almost every room in the house. At a target of $350,000 this home’s design incorporated a number of extras not found in a home of this price point.

  • Outdoor stone patio and second story master bedroom balcony caressing the lake shore
  • 2,200 SF, three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, attached 2-car garage
  • Octagonal shaped family room and upstairs master bedroom yielding surrounding views of the lake and shoreline
  • Existing vertical egress serving the mezzanine were extended horizontally to satisfy and separate rated egress routes.
  • Bay windows in the rear of the house help orient one to view of the lake from internal spaces
  • Overall design and cost savings of the base home enabled the builder to provide a number of upgrades including cabinets, millwork, and flooring
