Realty Check: This Has To Be The Most Spectacular Lake House In Indiana
You and 100 friends should chip in and buy this glorious vacation home on Bloomington’s Lake Monroe. Designed by Jason Wolfe of Demerly Architects for an Indianapolis real-estate developer, the lake house sits on a peninsula jutting out into the water. The lot determined the home’s long, narrow configuration. Wolfe incorporated as much glass as possible to showcase water views, and found a way to incorporate the world’s largest dehumidifier to handle the indoor infinity-edge pool with water features. Indoor pools produce significant humidity, creating the challenge of insulating the space so condensation doesn’t collect anywhere in the house. It was the first indoor pool Wolfe has created—and he hopes it’s the last. Nevertheless, someone with $3 million will get to enjoy the fruits of his labor. Here are some of the features, including details that might go unnoticed in the midst of all the design majesty of our favorite Indiana lake house:
The humidity-monster, infinity-edge pool separates common living spaces from bedrooms.
The metal beams are purely decorative.
The stunning chandelier looks like a cluster of the sacred glowing stones from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
This isn’t a hot tub. It’s a kiddie pool.
The pickup-truck bed and tool-cabinet nightstands stop traffic.
It’s a swing bed.
It’s a bed on wheels.
Put these galvanized sinks on your bucket list.
This sink looks like a boulder.
The Waterstone Wheel Pulldown faucet on the island costs between $3,000 and $4,000.
Branches sprout from the master bedroom’s light fixture.
