Gainesville house description

This home is perfect for family gatherings or romantic getaways. The main level boasts an open floor plan with huge vaulted ceilings and lots of hardwood. Bedding accommodations include five queen beds, all with upgraded sheets and bedding, plus an additional pull out sofa bed. The fully equipped kitchen opens to a formal dining room and great room with large flat screen tv. The oversized deck off the main includes gas grill, patio set, and lounge chair. There is a laundry room on the main with full size washer/dryer. There are two full baths on the main with a jetted jacuzzi tub in the master.

Downstairs contains a second family/gathering room complete with new pool table and flat screen tv. A full bath and second kitchen/bar area also exists downstairs. The large bedroom downstairs has two queen beds. Double french doors lead from the family room to an outside patio complete with eight person hot tub.

The gentle path to the lake is well lit and leads to a large 32' x 32' private double slip dock with party deck; the largest allowed on the lake. The dock sits in deep water and has never been dry, even during the drought years which we are trying to forget around here... The top deck has a large 12' x 20' commercial grade canopy to keep you cool during the hot summer. No worries as there is plenty of additional open deck space for those seeking the sun. I do keep my boat in one slip however the other slip is available for yours as is additional docking space along each side. Vertical rub rails/bumpers (very important) are in place along each side of the dock and slip to protect your boat. The dock is fully lit for night time fishing.

Parents relax as the private cove is well suited for swimming or fishing without worry of heavy boat traffic. There is none of the annoying constant up and down dock movement present in more populated areas of the lake. This is a very peaceful and clean section of the lake with hidden ski coves (just ask) and fish galore. Check out the fish condos under the dock (you fishermen know what I mean...).

After a day on the lake sit back and relax in the oversized hot tub followed by a game of pool or even checkers. Enjoy a gourmet meal prepared in the inviting kitchen (all utensils and appliances needed are included along with charcoal and gas grills) or at one of the fine local restaurants only a few miles away in downtown Gainesville. Just remember, relax, you're on vacation!

                              About the owner: This is not just a rental or second home. This is my primary residence and has been for over seventeen years. I personally built this home, along with several others in the neighborhood and take great pride/care in keeping it in immaculate shape year round. I think you will agree it is significantly nicer than the average vacation rental and promotes carefree lakefront relaxation.
