Property description

This custom timberframe (post & beam) house, designed by a nationally renowned architect, features a dramatic open floor plan & stair tower with expansive lake views from every room. A dramatic 2 story great room with stone fireplace has 5 French doors opening to an expansive deck, gazebo and screened porch facing the lake. The gourmet kitchen has granite counters and a 12' island facing the great room and lake views. Off the kitchen is a convenient office with wi-fi connections. The large luxury master suite is on the 1st floor. Two other large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a private deck and a balcony sitting area overlooking the great room are on the 2nd floor. On the lake side, the walkout terrace level has a large colorful bunk room that sleeps 2-4 along with an expansive playroom, large new spa bathroom and 5th bedroom. The double garage is connected to the main house with a timberframe breezeway. This unique house features quality design, construction and appointments not found elsewhere.

Lake Oconee is located about an hours drive east of Atlanta. It is a 20,000 acre private lake owned by Georgia Power and controlled by their hydroelectric Wallace Dam - the water level remain fairly constant. The lake is ideal for water sports and fishing.
This secluded executive retreat is on 2 acres of wooded property and boasts 800 feet of shoreline wrapping around a private 3/4 acre park-like penisula that extends out into the deep water of the wide main lake. The house is on the scenic west shore, and just a 5 minute drive south of I -20. It is close to both historic Madison and the Reynold's Plantation Ritz Carlton Resort and golf courses.

Bathrooms:
The fully tiled modern bathrooms feature custom-designed porcelain, slate or ceramic tiled shower and tub areas. All have premium granite counters and designer styled oil rubbed bronze faucets. There is a large spa bathroom on the terrace level with unique custom cabinetry. The powder room on the main level has a dramatic amber glass sink set in a custom designed furniture-like cabinet. Plush sets of towels are provided.

Bedrooms:
The first floor features a private large and luxurious master bedroom suite with large spa style bathroom, all in porcelain tiles with granite counters and cherry cabinets. On the second floor, there are 2 large bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The large dramatic loft bedroom with private bath has a cozy sitting area and private sleeping alcove with twin beds. The other large bedroom opens to a private 2nd floor deck with spectacular lake views. The 4th bedroom that sleeps 4 persons is a large bunk room on the walk-out lake/terrace level with custom designed built-in bunk beds for the young at heart plus 2 twin beds. A 5th bedroom on the lower level faces the lake.

The house features a rugged elegance in design with fine quality construction and appointments throughout. It is wonderfully furnished with an artful mix of antiques and quality new furniture. Custom solid hickory doors and woodwork from the Pennsylvania Amish country compliment the architecture. The stylish gourmet kitchen was designed for easy entertaining and features a 12' long island with dramatic black granite counter. It is completely equipped for even the most discerning chef including a beverage refrigerator, garbage disposal and instant hot water. Dining service for 10 is provided. The house is intended for a quiet executive or family retreat in beautiful surroundings. Large parties or gatherings are not permitted. Please email owner for full color photo brochure of the house and grounds along with complete rental price guidelines.

The Property:
The property boasts of 800 feet of shoreline wrapping around a private 3/4 acre park-like peninsula. There is a private 40' long sandy beach with shallow water on one side of the point close to the house. The beach is perfect for small children and has cedar log furniture for relaxing there. The water is about 8' deep off the private 40' max dock - perfect for swimming, boating and fishing. Children have caught large fish right from the dock!
