Modern mountain luxury awaits at this 5,000 sf stunning new construction home. Situated in the heart of Fenley Forrest, it is perched atop one of the most pristine and unique points in the center of Lake Glenville.

It is highly secluded yet a quick drive to all of the area’s amenities and attractions! The entry floor boasts 30 ft ceilings with a stunning floor to ceiling fireplace, an open floor plan and panoramic views of Lake Glenville.

Other features include a large capacity professional series refrigerator, pot filler, microwave, dish washer, commercial style pull down kitchen sink faucet, and a large, double sink.
The laundry room has a high efficiency washer/dryer with a utility sink and ample quartz countertops for folding.
The dining room is more akin to a well-appointed banquet hall with seating for 14 at the sprawling Restoration Hardware farmer’s table. Ambient amber lighting casts a warm glow from the geometric two tiered chandelier floating above. The giant picture window is like a big screen featuring the motion picture of the swaying branches and rustling leaves of a centuries old tree. The dining room has grand sliding doors that open up to the covered upper patio’s outdoor fireplace replete with rocking chairs for conversation, aperitifs or after dinner drinks.
The master bedroom is truly breathtaking. Occupying 1,000 sf of sophisticated and secluded space with heavenly 16ft vaulted ceilings, some of the lake’s best views can be had from its 8 massive floor to ceiling windows. The white leather Italian-made king sized bed feels like a cloud floating through the treetops. For your electronic viewing pleasure, a projection television screen casts a 120” picture on the wall. A sectional sofa makes for a perfect reading nook or invite family and friends in to watch a movie or to enjoy the views in this master suite fit for a king and queen. A French door opens to the upper patio with an umbrella covered dining table for 8 and 2 lounge chairs. The master bathroom has a glass enclosed shower with dual high pressure showerheads, a rain shower in the midpoint and a steam shower. Opposite the shower is a picture window to enjoy forest and lake views while showering. An oversized Jacuzzi tub with lights and jet propulsion is ready to provide decompression and relaxation. The toilet room is separate and his and hers sinks and vanities sit on opposite sides of the bathroom. The master bedroom closet is plenty big to accommodate all of your vacation wears. It also stores a brand new queen sized mattress that can be pulled out to the bedroom for children wanting to sleep near and dear to their parents.
The main floor has a large guest bedroom with picture windows over the king sized bed, bringing the beauty of the outdoors inside. The shower is appointed with stone mosaics and a gray linen tile for a rustic modern feel.
The lower level has 10 ft. ceilings and breathtaking views of the lake. It’s bright, open and airy! There is a gas fireplace in the spacious living room, a dining table that seats 10, a ping pong table and a second full kitchen! The kitchen includes an oversized stainless refrigerator, dishwasher, full sized electric oven and microwave. The breakfast bar seats 4 and doubles as a wonderful buffet table.

The fifth bedroom is a loft with its own half bathroom. The loft has beautifully pitched high ceilings, it's own climate control NEST thermostat and 3 full sized beds. Two of the beds roll into the wall when not in use. The loft is perched above the main floor and overlooks the living room, kitchen and dining room.
The home has Sonos, full internet, a wifi extender, at&t hub, (Verizon is the preferred carrier of the area for best reception.) It’s a smart home with remote electronic locks and climate control. There are 2 separate zones for central heating and cooling with in floor ventilation. There is an extra large Big Green Egg for the barbeque purist and an electric grill option. There is a rustic fire pit in the backyard down by the lake.
Our home has a gentle slope down to the lake making it easily accessible for all ages. One of Lake Glenville’s protected islands sits just offshore of the home’s 130+ feet of lake frontage. What a bonus! In the summertime, the water between the back yard and the island is shallow, providing the perfect swimming lagoon for children. And adults especially appreciate the balmy temperature this shallower body of water provides as the sun glistens and warms it the whole day through. During the Fall and Winter months, the water level of Lake Glenville is lowered by way of the dam. This creates a sandbar which reveals an enormous sandy beach spanning the estate all the way to the outer island. The island promises to afford countless hours of good old fashioned outdoor fun for you and your little pirates year round! There are plenty of activities in the area for kids and adults: shopping, dining, golfing, hiking, white water rafting, a sliding waterfall, photography, gem mining, horseback riding, antiquing and more.
