$2,395,000 Sold! 5bd / 5fb / 1hb

This 5BD/5.5BA craftsman style home offers the perfect combination of mountain and lake living. The home is perched above the lake on a private lot with sweeping lake and mountain views and a 2-stall, 2-story boathouse on deep water just across the road. A flagstone porch with mountain laurel railings introduces the foyer that opens into a spacious great room with a warm wood interior from floor to ceiling and a stone fireplace at the center. Multiple seating areas provide space for a large crowd to gather around together to lounge or play games. The kitchen provides plenty of counter space for prep work, a large island for gathering and a dining area with lake views. A separate wet bar makes entertaining easy with an under counter fridge and plenty of storage for bottles and stemware. A screened porch and grilling deck wrap the front of the house offering space for dining and lounging by the fire while enjoying sweeping lake and mountain views. A powder room and master bedroom complete the main floor. Upstairs, 4 bedroom suites with private baths surround a cozy family room. Three of the suites enjoy lake and mountain views. The laundry room is located upstairs. The exterior of the home includes access to a basement golf cart garage and storage area. New HVAC and water heaters were installed in the last year. The lot offers beautiful mature landscaping with boulder retaining walls, stone pavers, a firepit overlooking the lake and established grape vines and blueberry bushes. Boats and furnishings are negotiable making this a great opportunity to buy a turn-key lake home for immediate use.
