Lakewood Southern Transitional

Our Inwood Home of the Week is a Lakewood Southern transitional home at 7151 Shook Avenue. It was built by Allegiant Custom Homes and designed by one of our favorite architects, Eddie Maestri.  If you enjoy cooking up a big Thanksgiving dinner, this house is going to create some new traditions that will ensure you won’t mind hosting every year!

We are always intrigued by Maestri’s designs because he brings so much to the party. Maestri travels a lot, and all those visual memories come to life in his work. This Lakewood Southern transitional is a pleasing blend of some of the design elements in locations near and dear to Maestri’s heart, including New Orleans and Rosemary Beach.

We seldom think of what challenges architects must face. The general assumption is they just draw something pretty, and poof, it’s done. Not so.
