Southern Living's 2011 'Idea House' Wants $3.2M

Here's an idea: drop $3.2M on Southern Living's 2011 "Idea House," a four-bedroom designed by Michael G. Imber Architects on a .73-acre lot in the Escondido community of Horseshoe Bay, Texas. SL described the results of their endeavor as a home with "European leanings," embodying the "timeless charm, classic architecture, and authentic details befitting a historic Mediterranean villa," and went ahead and rounded up 101 of said details. In the living room, for example, there's no. 12: a large clerestory window above the fireplace that floods the space with natural light, highlighting the juxtaposition of finishes and materials (no. 17), including weather-wood wainscoting a pair of stone columns flanking the entrance. As it's styled in the photographs, the room highlights no. 16: interior designer Marcus Mohon's guiding principal of "mix, don't match," and as he told the magazine, he "wanted to keep the room relaxed to reflect its lake location." The listing notes that the 5,200-square-foot home blasts that oft-bemoaned indoor-outdoor divide to pieces with a poolside shuttered loggia, a guest casita, a "gourmet outdoor kitchen with wood burning fireplace," a boathouse, a private dock and 140 feet of lake frontage.
