Sheltered pavilion offers views out both sides of this upmarket lakeside home

​​​​​​​Not a drawbridge, but definitely a bridge that draws the eye – the wooden bridge and a reflection pond together make for a dramatic approach to this simple, relaxing and luxurious home by house designer Mark Wilson of MDS. The house is constructed in solid masonry brick with a steel roof. Walls of glass on both sides of the lakeside home mean guests get a glimpse of the outlooks right from the front door.
