Sited on a bluff above 200’ of private beach, in a peaceful setting among tall pines. Spectacular views can be seen from a big deck, screen porch, and nearly every room, including the kitchen. There is wonderful swimming in crystal clear water, and a new dock with mooring (through Labor Day) - bring your boat (up to 20') or rent nearby! The Great Room has a cathedral ceiling and huge dining table. There are four good-sized bedrooms, 2 on each floor, with comfortable beds, and a loft with a desk. Split bathrooms accommodate simultaneous use and each bedroom has its own sink. Amenities include linens and towels, washer/dryer, gas grill, TV/DVD player, and internet.
The kitchen has a Jenn-Aire cooktop with griddle, double wall ovens, microwave, large French-door refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, dishwasher, garbage disposal, toaster, coffee maker, and blender. It is separated from the dining area by a counter that has 4 stools on the dining side. The walk-in pantry off the kitchen also houses the washer and dryer. A large screen porch opens off the great room, via wide French doors that can be left open to bring the outdoors in, and connect to the 14' x 45' open deck facing the lake. A covered porch off the kitchen shelters a large gas grill, and access to a clothes line for hanging out wet bathing suits and towels.
Baths are designed so no one has to wait. First floor bath has two sinks, with a separate room for the toilet. An extra-long tub with a shower is also in a separate room. Upstairs each bedroom and the loft has its own sink. The upstairs toilet and shower are each in their own room. Hot water is from an 80 gallon tank, oil-fired for quick and long-lasting hot water.
There is internet, but no cable TV is available to the house. There is an analog converter that gets several channels on the TV, and a DVD player. A Roku is hitched up to the TV that can access whatever channels you get at your home, by connecting through your home cable provider, as well as online providers like Netflix and Hulu. An HDMI cable is available for hitching the TV to your laptop. There are cards, board games, and puzzles in the coat closet, too.
There is parking for four vehicles. There are four shallow stairs leading to the entry porch, but from there the main floor of the house and all it's decks and porches would all be accessible to someone unable to use stairs. There are 12 stairs down from the deck to the ground on the lake side, and 44 stairs from there to the beach, built in 3 sets that are broken by 2 landings, each with a built-in bench. The house is not air conditioned, but it's rarely needed; the elevated location catches every breeze and every room has a fan. For cold weather guests: house is heated and well insulated.
