The Story: Modernist enthusiasts Barry and Leigh Whaling, who bought the property in 2011 and — after minor alternations — began building the stunning wood and glass home from architect Harry Schrader’s plans. Working during the housing bust made construction a breeze. What would normally have been a two-year project was completed in only one. “Materials were delivered on time and contractors were lined up at our door,” Barry recalls.
Despite its lakeside setting in the Southeast, Barry refers to the style of the house as Mountain Modern. “That’s what I thought when I saw the plans,” he recalls, “Wood and steel, thick walls, huge windows; what you might see in Colorado: A big view house.”
Fitted with a home theater, a fully equipped gym, boat dock, swimming pool and unique “ping-pong grotto” — all spread over multiple levels and serviced by an elevator — this architectural masterpiece can be full of friends and family and never feel crowded.
From across the lake summer fireworks from Carowinds light up the evening sky and can be enjoyed from the floor-to-ceiling windows of the open concept living and dining space, as well as
from the screened porch with overhead fans to keep you cool in the summer. Views extend to the outside patio with a fireplace for cozy fall days and down to the pool perched over the lake.
