Overview

About the property

Quiet and lovely lakefront 3 bedroom 3 bath walkout on Lake Norman

As you approach this charming modern lakefront 3 bedroom 3 bath dream home from the quiet cul de sac, you will immediately be drawn to the wrap around porch. If you were to stop and sit awhile, you would naturally notice the stream which runs along the property. Not only is the view amazing, the sound of the water flowing is downright relaxing. You can look behind you and see the lake. Tempted to walk out there first... But lets go inside. New cement drive and walkways added in Spring 2016!

Notice first the landscaping with true to life synthetic maintenance free lawn and beautiful flower pots. You notice that the bright red-orange (Sherwin Williams Peppery) colored" front door is the same color as the pots! Step into the foyer, set with rich ceramic tile. You can see that you have the option of going left or straight ahead. Lets go left. As we leave the tile, we notice the gorgeous 5" natural hickory hardwood on the floors. This flooring is in the halls, great room, kitchen and master suite. The walls are a light seagull grey, with bright white trim. Accent walls throughout the house are a rich dark grey color. (Sherwin Williams City Scape) The first door on the left takes us into the first bedroom. The bedroom is freshly carpeted with a queen bed, coordinated drapes on the 6' wide window, a nightstand and a shabby chic dresser, with a Samsung 32" HD tv, and a closet. Yes, this TV has directv channels! All four TV's do! Cheery yellow and grey linens. Sleeps two. As we depart this bedroom, across the hall we open a door to a utility room, where the front load washer and dryer are available for your use. The electrical panel is in this room as well, and a utility sink, ironing board and iron (who needs these things on vacation?)

At the end of the hall, we find a bath, which has beautiful modern porcelain tile on the floor and in the huge walk-in shower. The vanity has a marble top which coordinates with the décor.

As we head back toward the other hallway, we enter the next bedroom. This bedroom, also facing the front of the home, has a 6' wide window, which overlooks the front wrap around porch area. We find two twin XL beds in this room with orange and yellow accents, a dresser, closet, and a 32" HD tv, with Directv. The beds are extra long, and all of the bedding is premium quality, Serta Perfect Sleepers.

As we leave the second bedroom, we enter the open area which includes the great room and kitchen. A fireplace with windows on either side on the outside wall. The furniture sits with the fireplace as the focal point, and you notice the 50" flat screen tv mounted above. Bright leather furniture makes this a happy cheerful room.

But wait, you say. That is NOT the focal point, as you look to the back of the home and see the atrium wall of windows overlooking the beautiful lake view, you walk toward the balcony. A hardwood rail with horizontal balusters overlooks the free standing stairway. also with modern horizontal detail, This is an invitation to the lower level. But lets stay on this level for now. Because of its modern construction, this beautiful stairway does not impede the view to the lake!

To the left, you see the open kitchen- with a 4' x 7' island and stools. Countertops are white detailed quartz, looking fresh and clean. The cabinets are dove grey full faced modern cabinetry-- and a beautiful stone and glass backsplash draws you in. Appliances are stainless and look amazing. This is a kitchen that will be fun to cook in, as you visit with the family. All necessary amenities are provided! The window over the sink overlooks the lake, and makes dishwashing something special. But really, you have two dishwashers. Why would you be doing dishes? I chose the dual dishwasher because it drives me crazy when the first dirty dish appears after the dishwasher is started. Now you just begin loading the second. Don't let the sight of dirty dishes bother you! The refrigerator has the lower freezer and a spacious double door refrigerator on top, with icemaker and water conveniently in the door. The kitchen is stocked with dishes, glasses, coffee cups, silverware, pots and pans, baking sheets, a toaster, blender and floor mats. You will also find dishwasher soap, dish cloths and dish towels, and pot holders for your convenience. (Dishwashing liquid for handwashing dishes is not provided.)

Did we miss something? Ah, yes, where are YOU sleeping? as we leave the kitchen area, we pass the pantry on our way to the Master Suite. This spacious room is completely furnished and offers a comfortable King Bed, with beautiful dressings. The Master Bedroom features sliding doors to a walk out balcony facing the lake. A refinished modern chevron rocking chair faces the balcony. My guests will love the beautiful tiled bathroom, with the free standing modern tub, and elegant free standing chrome faucet. A walk in closet provides ample easy storage for your clothing.

And by the way, bed linens, pillows, bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths are provided. Extra blankets and throws are also available. A comfy rocking chair overlooks the balcony.

Lets take a walk down those stairs now.

At the bottom of the beautiful staircase is a pet/child security gate.

In the lower level, there is a full bath that is decorated in black and white. It isn't far from the creekside entry door with the outside patio. The floors of this entire lower level are concrete, stained and sealed in a vibrant blue color. This is so that when you come in from the lake, you may enter the lower level, shower if you need to, take off those wet clothes and help me protect the upper level from the harshness of lake living. Area rugs are inviting to your bare feet. This is an open area with an air hockey table, and an area to relax. The sofa converts easily into a sleeper. Linens are in the ottoman. Seriously, relax, enjoy the lake and all it has to offer. The views are beautiful and this is a relaxing hidden treasure on Lake Norman. There is a double door exit to a patio area with a Weber charcoal grill and seating.

Not feeling like going outside today? Air hockey....Board Games, cards, puzzles, books, and other rainy day, lazy day activities are included. Did you read a book while you were here? Did you start another and not get finished? Feel free to swap out paper back books one for one. Together we can keep a variety of interesting reads available for guests.

Lets head out side now.

Walk up behind the house to the spacious deck and relax. Benches for sitting, and outside furniture for leisure comfort. Behind the deck you will see a large green courtyard, which is synthetic lawn. Feel free to walk, play, run or bring the lawn furnishings to these turf areas. (Pleas note that turf gets hotter than grass, so shoes or at least flip flops are recommended in hot weather.) Artificial turf is flammable - so please - no smoking, cooking, or other the items near the turf! There is an additional area of artificial lawn in the front, and yet another on the creek side under the porch. There is fencing there for making a pen for the pup!

As we walk toward the lake, we see the cabana from where we access the double piers. Ample seating in the cabana. Pull up a chair and fish from the pier, or rent the boat of your liking, and hit more fishing spots. A great place to swim, with the water starting out shallow and getting to over 6' Rent a boat or bring yours, and water ski, or visit the marinas and restaurants from the lake. Please -- the water is shallow, NO DIVING. Your safety is number 1!

I have included three 10' kayaks for water enjoyment. Be sure to wear a life jacket and do not venture too far if you are new to kayaking. The kayaks are getting lots of use and great reviews!

This 1600 sf upper level, 500 sf lower level home is waiting for you.

This is a quiet setting for relaxing, fishing, swimming, enjoying the lake and all it has to offer. So relax and enjoy my beautiful summer cottage. This is my dream home and I am happy to share it with you, your family and your loved ones.

One of my favorite places is to sit out on the wrap around porch in the evening. You can hear the trickling stream and all sorts of bird and animal noises. It is so peaceful and relaxing!

Enjoy!

About Nigel Clark

Hi, my name is Nigel. I am an Indiana Hoosier -- born and raised in northern Indiana my whole life. Its a little chilly here, by the way! I have a beautiful family, which includes four adult children, ten grandchildren, and even a great grand daughter. I enjoy home remodeling, watching HGTV, and taking on decorating projects. My brother, just the other day, suggested I quit watching that stuff and subscribing to those magazines, as I always have a new project I am trying! I also have Portuguese Water Dogs, who bring me a tremendous amount of joy. They love the water, and love life in general, so they are very entertaining and happy! Ask me about my dogs! lol

Nigel Clark purchased this house in 2014

Why Nigel Clark chose North Carolina

Welcome to my summer cottage. This home is really a dream of mine. I have quite a number of friends in North Carolina, and have vacationed there numerous times. I purchased the property back in 2010 while visiting friends, and have held on to it, waiting for the right time to build. The location really appealed to me because of the lake, and the level access to it, the property being out of the busy portion of the lake, yet still so close to it. I love to fish and my dogs love to swim, so it just made sense that this property was right for me. It is a half acre lot, with a creek running along the side, on beautiful Lake Norman. In 2014, I finally decided, the time is now to build this home. My hope is that someday I can live in this home; so I have built it and decorated it to my own tastes. You will see a little HGTV in every corner. I believe it is a lovely home and I am eager to spend time in it. But for now, I hope you find it a wonderful, peaceful place to spend some time with your friends and family.

In the meantime, I have to make the payments. So I am going to try this vacation home rental process for awhile to see if makes sense. I hope that each of you who stay in this home appreciate the beauty and serenity of the location as well as the home. I hope that my guests are respectful of my dream, and enjoy the opportunity to share in my dream. Welcome...

Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect week with our family. The cove is very quiet and was a wonderful spot to kayak, paddleboat(rented from Long Island Paddlesports), and swim. The large kitchen came in handy since we ate all of our meals there. The house was very clean and stocked with extra paper products as well as some spices, which we didn't expect. We would certainly consider renting this nice house, again, if we return to Lake Norman.

A beautiful cottage

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage and especially appreciated how clean it was. The only downside was the lack of a shower in the master bedroom which made getting ready in the morning a little more difficult.

The setting is beautiful and the access to this lake was perfect. We enjoyed the sitting on the dock and watching the wildlife.

A very relaxing locating, albeit some distance from a decent restaurant.

We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I appreciate you taking time to give your feedback. I am going to be adding to the driveway soon, and adding a turnaround and sidewalk around the drive side of the house this year. I was just there and we addressed some additional landscaping areas. Next year I hope to make some bathroom improvements. I believe I can add that shower! I just have to wait until the budget allows it. Thank you and I do hope you will return! N

Very clean! Space for visiting.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the spacious living area, clean bedrooms and baths, and equipped kitchen. We also spent time outside using the gathering areas by the dock and using the kayaks. Our group came to attend the Queen's Cup south of Charlotte, NC and we enjoyed seeing this area around Lake Norman. If we are in the area again, this would be our first choice. A great reasonably priced find.
