Cadiz house description

LEISURE LAKEHOUSE
Fall is a gorgeous season at Lake Barkley, and our location is the perfect spot to enjoy it all. Beautiful fall colors in a serene setting. Bird watchers will love sighting the eagles, owls, cranes, and herons that frequent our land and trees. There are so many pretty little birds to watch and listen to as they hop around on branches of trees that are close to the deck. This time of year is also spectacular for sighting deer and wild turkey. Our land is partially in a nature-protected area, and it is home to lots of wildlife. The deer often venture out of the woods and play in the open meadow area, and the wild turkeys do the same. Because the water level has lowered now, the deer like to wade out to the sandbars or to the nearby island. It's quite a sight! And it won't be hard to spot the family of geese that makes our property home.

This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath lakehouse has a peaceful and private setting with 180 degree views of water. Enjoy both sunrises and sunsets from the extensive wrap-around deck. Relax to the sounds of songbirds and the sights of owls, cranes, eagles, and large jumping fish. The private dock is easily accessible with no steps. The large 2.5 acre point lot is a serene setting for unwinding to the sounds of chirping birds and splashing fish.

In summer/high pool Little River is a fisherman's dream; you can fish from the dock or shore. Springtime is particularly good bass fishing in our lake location. If you are the people-watcher type, you will enjoy spotting the fishing boats float by. The more adventurous will want to explore the coves, islands, and shoreline for excitement. 3 kayaks are available for your use that hold a total of 5 people.

The Leisure Lakehouse offers easy access to marinas, Lake Barkley State Park, Land Between the Lakes, and Kentucky Lake. We are just a short distance from I-24 which makes it easy to navigate to all the fun spots. Antiquing in friendly Cadiz is a fun past-time, and restaurants can be found throughout the lake area. Land Between the Lakes is a family must-see with the Elk and Bison Prairie, eagle tours at the Nature Station, the Planetarium, The Homeplace (a 19th century working farm), and numerous hiking and off-road trails.There is so much to see and do that you will want to spend time exploring the many attractions, all within a short drive. If you are in the mood for music and city fun, Nashville is only a 1.5 hour drive.

Leisure Lakehouse is located on a dead end large point lot with a private circular driveway and a 2 car garage. There is plenty of parking for vehicles, boats, and RVs. The u-shaped drive makes for easy in and out access when pulling trailers.

The house sleeps 13 total. The master bedroom, located on the main floor, has awesome views of the lake and trees that let you enjoy the outdoors and wildlife while still lying in bed. The master bedroom also opens up to the deck for a fresh morning peek of the sunrise and the strolling geese. Some mornings you will sight a few deer or a flock of turkeys.

Upstairs, the spacious landing joins 2 more bedrooms separated by a full bath. The smaller bedroom makes a wonderful kids' room, with 2 sets of bunk beds and 3 game chairs. The larger bedroom has 2 queen beds and a small sleeper sofa. Both bedrooms have beautiful views of the lake.

          Other Amenities

              • Lake Barkley water levels fluctuate throughtout the seasons. As a controlled lake, the water is higher in summer than winter. The water level around our dock during summer pool is about 3-5 feet. Shallow draft boats are advisable if you plan to secure your boat to the dock. The water level has dropped significantly this fall season (2014). Currently there is not enough water to secure a boat to the dock. This lower water level does make for some fantastic wildlife sightings, including lots of deer!...moreless

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2014

              About the owner: We are looking forward to retirement on Lake Barkley. We have a few years to go, but we decided to try the leisure life a couple of weeks out of the year. As working folks, we don't get as much time to enjoy the property as we would like.

              Why the Owner Chose Cadiz:
              We purchased the Leisure Lakehouse in Spring of 2014. Although we have family a couple of hours North, we are just getting to know the Lake area. We wanted a retirement home in a resort-like setting that was close enough for family gatherings. This large home and lot is perfectly situated for a large number of people to have a great deal of fun. We wanted a place that was private and peaceful, but close enough to amenities and friendly faces.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              When we first saw this place, there was a big owl sitting in a tree off the deck. We knew it was a good sign. On that same day, we were awed by the multitude of cranes and jumping fish. This house is unique with its huge deck that puts you face to face with the singing birds in the trees. We enjoy watching the geese take their morning stroll as we sip cups of coffee. In evenings, we like to grill something juicy and watch the fading sunlight play on the water. The master bedroom is a favorite of ours for its ample space and large windows. The views are magnificent and calming. What a great way to wake up in the morning. Perhaps that's why we named our house the Leisure Lakehouse. We find that when we are here, all the stress dissipates. It is a terrific vacation spot, and for us it will be the ultimate retirement location.
