Country Living’s Water issue also kicks off Hearst for Humanity,
an innovative new social impact initiative
that connects Hearst Magazines’ audience to charitable partners on
the CrowdRise platform to inspire change and raise awareness for
important philanthropic organizations and causes. The issue drives
awareness for clean water initiatives through a collaboration with The
Nature Conservancy and their Canadian affiliate TNC Canada, with

Conservancy at HearstForHumanity.com/CLwater.

content that empowers readers to make smarter choices to protect
the earth’s waterways.
The Lake House of the Year was built by Classic Homes in collaboration
with developer Russell
Lands On Lake Martin and designed by Nashville architect Jonathan
Torode. The stunning 2,897-square home has four bedrooms, four

Fireplaces feature local stone, and mantels and beams are made from
trees harvested on the property. With its natural charm and modern
comfort, the design of the cabin provides space for family and friends
to gather both indoors and outdoors, providing the backdrop for creating
memories that can be cherished for generations.
The classic Russell Cabins, which have only been available as long-term
rentals, served as the inspiration for the Lake House of the Year—a
rustic past blending with a modern present. Native pine walls, floors,
and ceilings maintain a cozy feel, with more contemporary touches in the
kitchens and bathrooms.
