    Description

    Simply stunning! Inarguably one of the best locations on the lake, this home was designed to take in 180-degree views from the majority of rooms! Boasting 144 feet of lake front adjacent to walking bridge, kayaking and paddle boarding on this peaceful lake are just a few steps away. Every level of this home features the lake view; the paver patio on the walk out level, easy maintenance deck with new cable railing and a screened in porch on the second level and last, a private deck off the master bedroom on the third level. The interior spaces are equally incredible beginning with dramatic 2 story foyer and winding staircase. Flanking the foyer is the jaw dropping library custom built from cherry trees on the property. On the other side is the formal dining room with a convenient butler's pantry that includes wine cooler and beverage fridge. The kitchen is spacious and cook's dream with a 12-foot center island, high end appliances, custom walk-in pantry and a huge eat in area leading to both the screened in porch and open deck. The adjacent family room is so gracious with a coffered ceiling and floor to ceiling real stone fireplace. A flex room/office area, currently used as a craft area, full bath, powder room and a second staircase round out the first floor. On the second floor you will find a one-of-a-kind master suite with vaulted ceilings, cozy fireplace, private deck, luxury bath that includes a steam shower, whirlpool tub, dual vanities, and the crown jewel of walk-in closets that, along with much of the bathroom, was recently completed. The second bedroom has a private full bath, walk in closet and a lovely sitting area. Bedroom 3 shines with vaulted ceilings, lots of closet space and adjacent bath. The lower level is exceptional, with a full kitchen, media/game room, rec room/second family room, exercise room, full bathroom and bonus room that could easily be used as a guest room. All this makes this entire area useable as an in-law suite. Other notable amenities radiant heat throughout the house, custom built wine room, full house backup generator and a large workshop that would make any woodworker jealous. The Tower Lakes area is a wonderful vacation like community with many opportunities to do a much or as little as you would like; swimming, fishing, boating tennis and much more. Special Note: The homeowner appealed and received a $7,000 reduction in future taxes not reflected here.
