Water’s Edge, a Lake Havasu modern villa with a remarkably efficient space plan, showcases the best of Arizona’s vistas. With breathtaking views of Lake Havasu and the surrounding mountains, this residence celebrates the lake lifestyle.

Set on a lot only 50 feet wide at the prestigious new development Havasu Riviera, Water’s Edge is a study of the efficient use of space with its simple design and beautiful materials. Capturing lake views from primary spaces was of key importance. The architect framed views from the great room and dining areas as well as the primary bedroom, which is elevated to the second floor for privacy. An open floor plan allows formal and informal dining while the bar and kitchen gain the great room’s views.

An elevated office provides a work-from-home space out of the way of the main living areas. Rift-cut oak floors and custom cabinetry create continuity between the main and upper floor’s muted color palette.

The Lake Havasu modern villa utilizes a neutral palette of travertine, rift-cut oak cabinetry and porcelain tile, the blues of the water, purples of distant mountains and oranges of the sunset become the feature colors of this luxurious custom residence.
