Brke Lake's brick facade with twin gables creates a truly traditional style. CHK Architects in Silver Spring, Maryland, designed this plan with a recessed entry shaded by a balcony above. A variety of decorative windows adorns the front.
From the foyer, the two-story family room is clearly visible. A U-shaped stairway with a window on the landing allows natural light to filter into the rooms below. The master bedroom features a vaulted alcove with Palladian window and access to the exterior balcony. For convenience, the laundry room is located upstairs.
