Enter through private gate and meander along a 400' driveway through a park-like setting beneath a canopy of oaks until you reach this French Country inspired masterpiece. The foyer features a freestanding curved staircase custom built by local craftsmen, giving the space an air of southern charm. A recent remodel removed many of the interior walls filling the home with light and connecting the rooms beautifully. Custom moldings, beams and built-ins are the hallmarks of the interior spaces. The kitchen is flanked by a charming light filled keeping room & breakfast nook on one side and a wood paneled family room w/fplace on the other. The spacious & private first floor master suite has incredible lake views and connects w/the kitchen and formal spaces via a large slate tiled screen enclosed porch spanning the rear of the home. Also located on the first floor are a bedroom and office. Two charming second floor bedrooms feature dormer windows and custom built-ins. Pella windows offer breathtaking lake & sunset views from almost every room. The rear yard features a pavered terrace w/fountain, a lakeside patio w/fire pit, a covered boat dock and approx. 120 of lake frontage. The 3 car garage has a finished kitchen area downstairs and a large unfinished bonus space w/both dormer & skylight window, and a private entry - ideal as a guest house. The covered walkways, terraces and patios just ooze charm and give this home unique style & sophistication.
