Dive In …. Modern Living on Lake Wylie

Wowza on the water. Modern architecture that takes your breath away – to say nothing of those stunning water views. 7108 Anchorage Lane has quickly become a contemporary icon on Lake Wylie in Tega Cay, South Carolina. It’s curved glass wall wraps across a point and slows all the weekend boaters who stop to study it. Yet from inside you are above it all – perched over the lake with stunning water views from every room.

The Story:  Modernist enthusiasts Barry and Leigh Whaling, who bought the property in 2011 and — after minor alternations — began building the stunning wood and glass home from architect Harry Schrader’s plans.  Working during the housing bust made construction a breeze. What would normally have been a two-year project was completed in only one. “Materials were delivered on time and contractors were lined up at our door,” Barry recalls.

Despite its lakeside setting in the Southeast, Barry refers to the style of the house as Mountain Modern. “That’s what I thought when I saw the plans,” he recalls, “Wood and steel, thick walls, huge windows; what you might see in Colorado: A big view house.”

The kitchen is the heart of the home and you can see the water, the screen porch and the dock from it’s primo location.  Outfitted with first class Thermador appliances including a six burner range, double ovens and column refrigeration and freezer.  The huge island is perfect for entertaining with  a party of cooks in the kitchen.

Fitted with a home theater, a fully equipped gym, boat dock, swimming pool and unique “ping-pong grotto” — all spread over multiple levels and serviced by an elevator — this architectural masterpiece can be full of friends and family and never feel crowded.
From across the lake summer fireworks from Carowinds light up the evening sky and can be enjoyed from the floor-to-ceiling windows of the open concept living and dining space, as well as from the screened porch with overhead fans to keep you cool in the summer. Views extend to the outside patio with a fireplace for cozy fall days and down to the pool perched over the lake.
A half-hour drive from your contemporary lodge on the lake is the vibrant city of Charlotte, an exciting urban fusion of professional sports, cultural attractions, festivals, dining and nightlife. From lakeside living to urban adventures, this spectacular house brings it all home.
