Room with a View


Outdoor living spaces have become much more than a place to relax; they are now an extension of the home.   Many even include upscale kitchens and screened in porches.   Scott Lowell recognizes the demand for this extra space and accommodates the personal taste of each homeowner.  “Some families want an elaborate outdoor kitchen with a top of the line grill and plenty of island space to prepare food and entertain.  Others simply want a porch with a view to enjoy,” says Scott Lowell, president of Lowell Management Services.  “We create each space that accommodates the lifestyle of the homeowner.”

In Geneva National, where Lowell Management Services currently has three distinctly unique communities, all with custom homes built by Lowell Management Services, the outdoor space is as significant as the home.  With homes located on Lake Como, the 18th hole or in the midst of 200 year old oaks, the outdoor space in the home is a necessity.   Geneva National is Southern Wisconsin’s most notable year-round golf resort community.   It is located on Lake Como, just four miles west of downtown Lake Geneva.   This 1,600-acre property has expanses of preserved wooded and open space and surrounds 54 holes of legendary golf designed by Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Lee Trevino at Geneva National Golf Club.
Other amenities include tennis, swimming, water sports and miles of scenic hiking trails.   A new state-of-the-art fitness center is now open.   There is also a beautiful clubhouse with a new members-only dining room, a lavish new lounge and more. Both golf and social memberships are available.   Keefe Real Estate maintains a sales office open everyday at the entrance of Geneva National for both resale and new construction.   For additional information or to schedule your appointment to find out about The Woods, please call 262/245-2380 or visit www.gnbuilders.com.
