Access to the property is through a security gate with electric opener. Travel about a half mile up a winding, crushed gravel driveway to the house, which is nestled among the oak trees. Take a short walk up a concrete sidewalk to the covered, slate front porch, where you are greeted by a beautiful, custom wood, arched entryway. Step into the massive, open-concept living/dining/kitchen room, complete with slate floor, large windows, and contemporary fixtures. The focal point of the main living area is a beautiful, wood-burning fireplace, with stone surround, and a huge, custom wood mantel. Vaulted ceilings, and open wood beams draw the eye upward and complete the look of the space. Just off the living room, is a spacious dining area, with large windows that provide a beautiful view of the backyard and lake. Adjacent to the dining area is a wonderfully appointed, wrap-around kitchen, complete with granite counters - with bar seating -- custom wood cabinets, and stainless appliances. A generous, walk-in pantry completes the space. Down the hall from the living area are the master suite, two bedrooms, and a full bathroom. The first bedroom on your right has carpeted floors, large windows, contemporary fixtures, custom wood trim, and a double door, walk-in closet. The next room on your right is another bedroom, featuring carpeted floors, large windows, contemporary fixtures, custom wood trim, and a double door, walk-in closet. The next room on your right is a full bathroom, with slate floors, granite counters, custom wood cabinets, contemporary fixtures, and a full tub/shower combination with tile surround. The final room on the right is a spacious utility room, complete with granite counters, a separate sink, custom wood cabinets, and plentiful space for larger appliances. There is also access to the two-car garage at the end of this hallway. Across the hall from the utility room is the beautiful master suite. The master bedroom is large, with carpeted floors, contemporary fixtures, large windows - with custom wood trim - and a door that provides access to the back patio. The master bathroom is a quiet oasis in the home. Slate floors, dual, granite vanities, custom wood cabinets, and contemporary fixtures greet you; to your right is a large soaking tub with tile and slate surround, and just beyond that is a walk-in shower with tile surround. The master closet is spacious, with several built-ins, and plenty of rooms for hanging and folding clothes alike. From either the dining room, or the master bedroom, step out onto a large, slate back patio that runs the entire length of the house. The views of the lake are spectacular, and you could easily spend evenings watching area wildlife stroll and graze. Up a short, covered, slate breezeway, you encounter a large addition to the home that could be either a man cave, entertaining space, or other multi-purpose room. This large addition also has a wrap-around, wood and tile counter wet bar (with refrigerator), and a full bathroom; the bathroom has a custom wood vanity with slate and tile counter, contemporary fixtures, and a walk-in shower with slate surround and mosaic tile floor.
