Several vintage and shabby chic pieces of furniture and accessories add to the casual, tranquil, and soothing coastal vibe. They can be negotiated or purchased separately for that perfect turn-key residence!
Once a tiny cottage, the home has been expanded by the current owners. The indoor living spaces now flow seamlessly with the outdoors so you can fully enjoy lakeside living with family and friends.
The home has a very open concept living space. The kitchen, updated in 2010, has white cabinets, granite countertops, white subway tile backsplash, open upper shelving, and Frigidaire stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is open to the coral colored Dining area and the aqua colored living and family room areas. It is intended to be fresh, functional, and charming -- not a showpiece.
The Living area has white bead-board wainscoting and an adorable and cozy built-in reading nook under the stairwell. The Family room area has white bead-board wainscoting and two sets of sliding glass doors that lead to a huge vaulted Screened-in Porch with tin roof, added in 2014.
There are few things more relaxing than sitting on your Screened-in Porch overlooking the lake and enjoying a glass of your favorite drink. It truly is an awesome place to sit and eat, read, relax, or entertain to the soothing sounds and views of the lake be it rain or shine. It has a river rock gas fireplace flanked by Palladian-style windows with window seats, ceiling fans, and a door that leads to a Trexx platform deck. A brick paver path leads from the platform deck to the Gazebo.
Directly off the family room area, on the far left side of the home as you face the lake, is a lovely 1st floor Bedroom Suite with walk-in closet, En-suite Bath, and sliding glass doors to the screened-in porch.
Also off the family room area, near the street, is a cheery window-filled Sun Room that can be used as an Office. It has a door to the outside.
There are also two (2) additional 1st floor Bedrooms -- the smaller of the two could be an office, a full bath with pedestal sink and access to the crawl space, a utility room, and a laundry room with a Whirlpool washer and dryer and one of the homes two (2) newer Luxaine furnaces.
And finally, there is a huge tranquil 2nd floor Owners Suite that was added in 2011. At the top of the stairs there is a Loft area with window seat. To the right is a large Sitting room that is open to the adjoining Owners Bedroom. The bedroom wraps around to an enchanting Dressing room with chandelier and imported French cabinetry (negotiable) along one wall. To the left of the loft is the En-suite Owners Bath which also connects to the Dressing Room. A door off the dressing room contains one of two hot water tanks in the home.
The Owners Bath features a furniture style vanity with dual Kraus vessel sinks, huge walk-in tiled shower for two with white subway tile, glass tile accent, and multiple shower heads.
