Amazing views of Lake Gertrude and the Gardens from every main room. Approx. 1 acre of direct lakefront on sought after Lake Gertrude. Very private, no road or public space crosses your property. Beautiful landscaping, porches, patios and child-fenced pool area make for wonderful spaces for entertaining or relaxing. There's always a private spot here! Practice your golf swing, or set up a soccer pitch down the long open yard to the lake front There's an outdoor shower, sink and BBQ area, as well as covered porches to enjoy even if its raining.
This Private Lake has no public motor boat ramp, so usually very little boat traffic. Yet it is crystal clear, and a beautiful place to swim, kayak, fish (great bass lake, shhhh) or just sit on the dock and watch the sunset. The skiing is excellent.
Pool area is a zen oasis, overhung by bamboo and very private. The pool is of curve linear design, with fountain water features to top off the meditative feeling. A spacious paver patio looks on garden beds with 180 degree views to Lake Gertrude.
When you enter the unassuming front of this home, immediately you're pleasantly surprised by the long view all the way tho the lake. Open interiors and high ceilings, give a mid-century modern feel. Enjoy the lake views from nearly every room. Stacked stone real wood fireplace is a great center piece to the living area.
Kitchen, has granite counters, and a classic Viking Gas stove. Cabinets could use modernization as they are from the '90's. Kitchen is very efficient and spacious but could easily be opened up and expanded towards the living room, for a more contemporary feel.
Upstairs bonus room, had been variously used as Breakfast Room or Office. Kitchen could be further expand in this direction.
The floor plan is "Upside Down" as many lakefront homes are. That means Main Bedroom, His and Hers Main Baths, Living Room, Sitting Room, Office, and Kitchen are on the UPPER floor. This makes an easily accessible living area all on one floor, for wheelchairs simply add a small entry ramp and enjoy the ample space and views. There's also a huge deck that meanders from Main Bedroom French doors to outdoor dinner balcony with beautiful views from every angle.
Downstairs, the "first floor" includes the other 3 bedrooms, and 1 1/2 baths, as well as a room for a gym, library, media and/or family room space. This floor opens up to the pool area and also has great lake and pool views from each room.
All bathrooms are nice, but common wisdom is that the His and Hers Main Baths should be combined for a more open and modern feeling,
New roof and four new air conditioners have been installed since 2015.
This can be, and was, a great fun family home. Its many play spaces, ample wildlife, open grassy area, wonderful swimming and boating areas, all make it a perfect place to grow up.
For Seniors, you can live all on the upper floor enjoy the views, and have the family and friends stay downstairs. The best of both worlds :).
