Blanchard house description

Nestled on 1 acre among the tall fragrant pines, this charming 2-story hideaway is on an exclusive quiet peninsula. Private facilities includes a separate game house with foosball, pool table, darts, full bath, 3 bunk beds, HDTV Dish Network, air-conditioning and heating. This game house is a perfect place for the young people to have their own retreat during the day or overnight. You will have sole use of the open boathouse with 2 electric boat/jet ski lifts, sundeck, swim ladder, plus lit fishing pier. A boat rental and marina is within walking distance. The barbecue area has a mobile charcoal grill, picnic table, plus campfire area for an evening family bonfire or a hot dog and marshmallow roast. The two sitting swings, which face the water, are perfect for conversation and reflection.

You will be able to witness the breathtaking sunset, that falls upon this side of the lake, while you are on the deck that wraps around the side and front of the house or from inside through the many glass windows.

When you are at this picturesque and serene waterfront home, the air is fresh and clean, the surroundings are so quiet and peaceful, it seems as if you are in the country. On a clear, cloudless night you can see the stars twinkle in the dark sky.

This vacation lakefront is ideal for couples and families that are looking for sporting activity or just rest and relaxation from it all. The 2-story main home has a master bedroom with a king size bed, HDTV, recliner-lounge chair, and master bath. A king size bed and HDTV are in one of the downstairs bedrooms. A queen-size bed and full bunk bed are in the second downstairs bedroom. A full bath accommodates the downstairs bedrooms. Each of the bedrooms includes plump pillows, quality linens, and blankets. Bathroom towels and washcloths are also included.

The 2150 sq. ft. home has a telephone, 42'' HDTV Dish Network in living area, wood-burning fireplace, washer, dryer, plus air-conditioning and heating for your pleasure and comfort. The kitchen is well-equipped with a microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, silverware, dishware, cookware, range, oven, and refrigerator with icemaker. You will need to bring your cleaning supplies, paper and plastic goods.

Open Boathouse: You can easily operate the 2 electric lifts at the private boathouse. The larger lift will accommodate pontoon, tri-hulls, or V-hull boats. The 2nd lift will accommodate 1 or 2 jet skis (jet skis, pontoon, and ski boat rentals plus public boat ramp are within walking distance of the property). A swim ladder and a sand bottom is perfect for water lovers. Maybe you would prefer to listen to music, read, and or bask in the sun at the grass shore or on top of the elevated sundeck. There is good fishing (black bass, white bass, crappie, striper, perch, and catfish) at the fishing pier. The boathouse area has light so you can enjoy nighttime boating, fishing, or just the serenity of the lake. You can have a midnight party on the pier or sundeck that your family or friends will remember for a long time. ALLOW NO MORE THAN 10 INDIVIDUALS AT ONE TIME ON THE SUNDECK. SWIMMERS NEED TO BE SUPERVISED. THERE ARE NO LIFEGUARDS ON DUTY.

Private Gamehouse: The gamehouse is a separate structure and approximately 20 feet to the side of the main home. It has a pool table, foosball, dart game, HDTV, 3 bunkbeds, sofa, and a full bath. The house is air-conditioned and heated for year-round use. The game house also has plump pillows, quality linens, and blankets. Bathroom towels and washcloths are also included. You will long remember the panoramic view, at certain times, of the lake from the game house deck.

Barbecue Area: This waterfront property is large enough to entertain a separate picnic area among the numerous pines. Within this area, ideal for large groups or family reunions, is a picnic table, mobile charcoal grill, and a campfire area for your outdoor pleasure. The two sitting swings, which face the water, are perfect for conversation and reflection. The well manicured grass area between the shore and main house is large enough for your group or family to play badminton, horseshoes (already in place), or croquet. You will need to provide your own game equipment.

Lake Livingston State Park (within 8 minutes) offers picnicking, unsupervised lake swimming, biking, nature study, fishing, horseback riding, and swimming pool (Memorial Day-Labor Day). You might consider a round trip to the park from the property if you like to use a bicycle to exercise.

Mill Ridge Golf Course has a 9 hole course which winds around the historic Ogletree Sawmill which was founded in 1902. The course is very unique in that it also incorporates a pulpwood yard and an abandoned right-of-way railroad into its design.

Lake Livingston is in Polk County which offers 1,097 square miles of rolling hills and majestic pine forest. The lake and county are part of the Big Ticket National Preserve. Texas' oldest Indian Reservation of Alabama Coushatta Indians is located in the county. They have an event calendar, campgrounds, and a gift shop with unique souvenir items.

Other activities: Houston is within a 90 minute drive north and Dallas is only a 3 hour drive southward to this ultimate vacation spot. It is just walking distance of your morning breakfast cafe. A convenience store, new Cajun restaurant, marina, boat rental (jet skis, pontoon, and ski boat rentals), plus parking and a public boat ramp are at the same location only 1/3 mile distance from the lakefront home. Wal-Mart, HEB, Brookshire's, dollar stores, small shops, and eating establishments (pizza, BBQ, seafood, burger, sandwich, Mexican, Tex-Mex, and a couple restaurants) are located within approximately 10 minutes.

                      Location

                      Distinctive is a good description of this peninsula where the property is located. This lakefront home is in Indian Hills Estates which has very minor traffic providing peace and quiet to our visiting guest along with safety for those wanting to bicycle, walk, or jog. This area on the lake is endowed with beautiful scenery and a view of the lake while you take the 3 mile adventure around the vicinity. You will possibly meet some of the friendly residents when you leave the lake house to explore this island-like-environment.
