A Place For Dreaming — Lake of the Ozarks Homes

Three stories of angles and curves, with stunning stonework both outside and in, as well as fabulous woodwork and cabinetry everywhere you look — those are what make the home of Preston and Sharon Swafford a breathtaking masterpiece. Count the rooflines and you will understand why there are so many nooks and corners to fill with imaginative furniture settings. Count the curves, from the point upon which the home sits to the driveway in front, the Lakeside pool, the interior and exterior arches, the soaring staircase, even the windows and doors, to begin to understand the serenity of this home.

A Tropical Retreat — Paul and Kim’s Serene Lakeside Getaway

Set against Missouri’s burgeoning spring colors, the exterior of this unique Lake home exudes personality, from its Mediterranean design, stucco walls and classic columns to its Old World clay roof tiles in shades of cinnamon, saffron and caramel.

The Christmas House — The Rives Home

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas — a whole lot — in the home of Donna Rives in Oak Creek Estates, Osage Beach, Missouri. The moment one steps onto the front porch, with the evergreen garland above the front door and the welcoming dog statue sporting a hollyberry wreath around his neck, it’s clear that Donna’s passion for antiques and for Christmas gives a whole new meaning to “Deck the Halls.”
