The property offers total privacy with a flat lot set atop a hill on West Lake Drive and a quiet backyard that is perfect for exploring or building a pool. The blank canvas that 580 West Lake offers is extremely unique for 5 Points. The home is made for entertaining or growing families.

The room is anchored by a fireplace and a beautiful archway leading into the formal dining room. The dining room also offers a wall of windows, bathing the room in light, and offering a view of the private, fenced-in backyard. The kitchen is always a gathering spot for friends and family and 580 West Lake is no exception. It has a breakfast room, lots of cabinet space, large counters, and a pantry. The kitchen also presents easy access to an oversized laundry room. The laundry room has an extra sink, shelving, an extra refrigerator, and, an exterior door from the backyard - making it easy to take off dirty clothes headed for the wash. As you head down a lovely hallway, adorned with charming arches, to the bedrooms, you a pass a full bath which can be easily opened to the paneled study and its wall of built-ins. There are three bedrooms on the first floor, each offering a private bath. The master has His and Her closets and a bathroom with a separate shower and tub. Upstairs offers two more bedrooms, a large walk-in closet, full bathroom with His and Her sinks, and a large walk-in attic for storage (unheard of in 5 Points). Your family and friends will enjoy abundant space in the basement with a large rec-media room with exterior access as well. For the nature lover, you will not believe the privacy this lot offers, including access to a rippling creek towards the rear of the property. For investors, this property comes with a possible extra lot, presenting entirely new opportunities for development.
