Another home run by Gabriel Builders! This fabulous waterfront home enjoys deep water, broad lake views plus a view across the lake of the Cliffs Vineyards 5th fairway and green. The French Country design of the outside is striking in appearance from both the entry and the lakeside. Brick accents line the curve of the stone arches for an inviting combination of texture. Window boxes and shutters add subtle color and charm to the front elevation.
The home is positioned to take advantage of lake and golf course views from almost every room. The view includes a nicely landscaped level yard with stone patio that steps down to a fire pit complimented by rustic benches and finally to a gently sloped mulch path that leads to the covered dock. The green of the golf course creates a backdrop for the lake and lends a soothing ambience to the entire setting. As a plaque in the home reads: "Put your feet up, take a break, time to relax at the lake."
The main level boasts a sumptuous master retreat, private office, Great Room, large laundry room, butler pantry and an enviable kitchen. Owners love their master bedroom suite with its separate sitting area overlooking the lake, private deck, separate vanities, heated tile floor, walk in shower with 2 bench seats and 2 shower heads, and 200 SF well-appointed Carolina Closet. A vaulted wood ceiling in the Great Room is anchored at one end by a floor to ceiling stone fireplace. Three sets of French Doors open to the covered deck facing the lake. The kitchen, although open to the Great Room is defined by beams and a change in ceiling height. A large island offers seating and superior workspace. The dining end of the kitchen stands out with its conical ceiling, beams, rope lighting and stretch of windows with a view. A Butler’s Pantry is conveniently located at one end of the kitchen and can be closed off via a pocket door. For those who like to entertain, additional butler pantry access from the hall, laundry and garage will be appreciated. Just off the Kitchen is a covered porch with fireplace, lake & golf views, bar counter, yard access and simply great ambience.
The private office is situated just off the foyer and out of view. A wonderful window overlooks the courtyard and a fireplace graces the back wall. Add to that a coffered ceiling and a private porch and you may never get any work done! The 2 story foyer has a vaulted wood ceiling that runs perpendicular to the Great Room creating an impressive entry. The closet in the foyer is pre-planned for an elevator to access the lower level if ever desired.
The terrace level boasts tall coffered ceilings, 3 sets of French Doors to the yard, 4 bedrooms, recreation room with stone fireplace and refreshment/wine bar. Awesome for entertaining and when guests visit. Set behind a bar counter, the bar boasts leathered granite counter tops, hammered copper sink, small fridge & ice maker providing easy entertaining on this level as well as in the yard, at the firepit or on the dock. The pool table area features a clever storage wall for cue sticks. The 4 bed bunk room is first choice by children and the “window” bunk is first choice of the bunks! The two ensuite bedrooms have direct patio and yard access. Storage space runs the width of the house and enjoys finished floors & access from the yard for storing lake toys. The patio on this level showcases a wood burning fireplace, totaling 5 fireplaces PLUS the firepit!
Notable extras on the must explore list include the alcove setback of each room, the curved wall architectural accents in the powder room, “eye” ball lights for individual reading, a generator set to operate critical appliances and lights, fabulous built in storage in several bedrooms and more. The photos and drone video set the stage but being in the home is when you feel the quality and appreciate the attention to detail that went into the design and construction.
