Waterfront & Waterview Homes
Can you imagine waking up each morning to the sound of crashing waves and the clear peaceful blue of seemingly endless water? With our expert building services from Clarke Associates, LLC this can absolutely become a reality. Our professional team has a combined 60 years in the construction business. If you’re ready to make a waterfront or waterview home come to life, we’re here to guide the way.
Our goal is to make your new home beautiful, but most importantly it must be safe and functional. Therefore, we pay careful attention to the specific considerations that go along with building along or near the waterfront, including:
Land & Soil
A new home is only as strong as its foundation and soil type is a great indicator of the bearing capacity and permeability of the ground. If poor soil is present, this may add additional foundation costs. Permeability is an important aspect as we consider the potential for water to drain out of the soil following heavy storms. Flooding is a higher risk in waterfront homes and therefore we must pay careful attention to the land and soil.
We want you to be able to maximize your shoreline access. This means knowing the local building regulations far before we begin the construction process. Perhaps you would like to build a dock to attach a boat or as a pleasant place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. This falls under local regulations. We work closely with you to determine how your ideas fit well into the rules of the authorities.
View & Orientation
Let us help you design a waterfront home that offers unparalleled views of the spectacular water. This may means creating a façade that maximizes window size, or perhaps constructing additional terraces or decks so you can smell the fresh breeze right off of the home. This also means taking into account any possible obstructions that may get in the way such as trees or potentially other structures in the future.
At Clarke Associates, LLC we think not much goes better with the spectacular natural beauty of lakes or the ocean as a richly designed Victorian home. We offer complete Victorian home design and construction services including:
- Gingerbread: This refers to the turned posts and decorative trim that are characteristic of Victorian-style homes.
- Bay Windows: Ideal for waterfront properties, bay windows offer unmatched visual access to the outdoors!
- Steeply-Pitched Roofs: Typical of the time period, a steeply pitched roof, often with ornate shingles is a necessary element.
- And More! Our team is here to work closely with you to design a Victorian home that perfectly reflects your individual style.
