Just outside the city limits of Memphis, Tennessee, sits the small but ever-growing community of Lakeland, Tennessee. Exciting things are afoot in this once small-town, country farming area. A new development is coming to town, and the city of Lakeland is ecstatic. The new development is going to be called The Lake District; its name is derived from the name of the town it will occupy and because of its plethora of lakefront properties.
According to The Lake District website, “The Lake District is embracing the transformation of retail and commercial development that is both a reflection of and a catalyst for the growth of Memphis. A vibrant, walkable, and bustling neighborhood with a variety of options for living, working, shopping, and entertainment create a highly desired experience. The Lake District is part carefully curated retail experience…part bold new live-work concept…part planned residential community… sitting on 160 acres and built around a beautiful 10-acre lake. It’s a development designed for the future and happening today.”
The Lake District boasts 37,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, over 300 new apartments, two hotels, and 172 customed detached homes. This will be an exciting addition to the already bustling and vibrant city of Memphis. The Lake District will only be a twenty to thirty-minute drive from downtown Memphis.
If you're one of the home builders working on this development or a lucky homeowner that's building their dream home, you want to ensure you choose the right products for the build. Here's how we can help.
How to Choose the Best Pella Windows or Doors for Lakefront Property
For many, a lake house might be where you go to get away from it all, a nice escape from the hustle and bustle. The homes in The Lake District aim to evoke the serenity you feel at a vacation home.
Many of these homes may feature our luxurious Pella Lifestyle Series windows. In addition to these products, we offer many window and door options that could be a beautiful fit for your lakefront home. Since the view is important with a lakefront home, many Lake District homeowners will want to choose multiple windows or large picture windows.
If you are one of the lucky homeowners moving to The Lake District, consider these questions as you design your lakefront property.
Do I Want My Windows To Open and Let Fresh Air Into My Home?
If so, choose casement windows rather than picture windows since they open. Plus, you can still enjoy your breathtaking lakefront views by placing the casement windows beside each other. Or you can do bay windows with casement windows on the side of large picture windows.
Will Too Much Sunlight From the Windows Make my Home Feel Hot?
With Pella Windows, our windows are energy efficient. So, when sunlight shines into your home, you don't have to worry about it throwing off your home's temperature. This is because our windowpanes contain argon gas that helps with temperature regulation and, as a bonus, saves you money on your electricity bill!
How Much Privacy Will I Need?
If you need curtains or blinds on your windows, choose single or double-hung windows since you raise and lower these styles of windows vertically. This way, the blinds or curtains are not hindered by windows that open toward the front.
