Concrete was used in several areas of this waterfront home.

The patio has concrete with exposed aggregate. Large, natural rocks were left in place and the concrete poured around them. A wide set of steps connects the upper patio to a second patio near the water that has a built-in barbecue and fire pit. Concrete also was used to make a boat ramp that runs down one side of the home.

The home’s driveway and parking area were made with stamped and colored concrete, which includes a wagon wheel design that accents the home.

Inside, the lower floor of the home has a terrazzo finish designed to resemble a flowing river leading to a wine/cigar room. The bar has a concrete top with inlaid Harley Davidson parts, including drink holders made of motorcycle cylinder sleeves. The bar top was colored to resemble a road with centerlines, fog and a riverbank on the its edge.

The owner parks his Mercedes and Harley in the room.
