Lake House Dreams

Sonia Thompson

One of the most thrilling parts of building at Splinter Creek is the design phase, which could also be called the dreaming phase.

When our residents think about everything they hope for in a lake house -- from the way they might use it to connect with family and the outdoors to imagining a meditation room or art studio -- it's exciting to see those dreams reflected back in the form of fresh architectural renderings.

We are proud to share this newest set of dreams, which have turned into drawings on the page. In the near future, those dreams will become reality as building continues at Splinter Creek.

The guesthouse on homesite 10, Blackberry Hill, will be built before the main house.

The proposed design for the 2.4 acre Blackberry Hill homesite on Partner's Pond. The project will begin with a guesthouse for this North Carolina-based family, who frequents the Oxford area to attend University of Mississippi sporting events. With close proximity to the shoreline, the guesthouse and main house will boast expansive lake views and easy access to swimming, boating, and fishing. The design is by Jonathan Mattox of Howorth and Associates Architects.

The rendering for Splinter Creek homesite Painter's Point.

Homesite 22 Painter's Point, located on the back side of the North Lake, will be home to this residence that will include a music room and a meditation room. The Texas-based couple is looking forward to long, lakeside visits to Splinter Creek. The design is by John Weaver of Weaver Architecture in Jackson, Mississippi.

A guesthouse on the Thacker Ridge homesite will be constructed before the main house.

For homesite 18 Thacker Ridge, the homeowners also turned to Weaver Architecture for a family compound. The construction is planned for building a guesthouse first, where the Georgia-based family can stay for shorter visits as time allows them to build the main house.

The homesite for lot 19 Hickory Hill

The home designed for lot 19 Hickory Hill is by Beard + Riser architects, a firm based in Greenwood, Mississippi, with an Oxford office. The house, a full-time residence for an Oxford-based couple, will take full advantage of panoramic lake views and includes a great room and large deck that are vaulted over the water.

A proposed home design for lot 24 Cloud Rest.

The proposed design for lot 24 Cloud Rest is by archimania based out of Memphis. The plans could be negotiated with the sale of the homesite, one of only four remaining in the community.
