House layout: We are a gated community to start, has its own private restaurant, is amazingly landscaped!
You come down our tree lined driveway, and the house is very private.
You enter to a view of the lake, kitchen on the right, fireplace main room in the middle, all 3 bedrooms to the left. We have 2 T.V. areas, surround sound, both with lakefront views. 1 with a pocket door to shut out the noise or the kids room as we say! The other T.V. is for the adults; a 50' flat big screen off of the dining room along with Boze surround sound. 32' flat screens in the bedrooms. ESPN, HBO and Showtime are available.
The house is partly wall to wall carpet and partly white birch hardwood floors. It is an open plan layout, no stairs, so accessible to all. All natural soaps in the bathrooms.
The deck is 50 feet across and has deck furniture and an outside deck eating area, and of course, lake front views ... Lots of bird feeders and birds!
