Property description

WELCOME TO THE LODGEPOLE PINE HOUSE, A BEAUTIFUL FOUR SEASON RETREAT FOR OUTDOOR ADVENTURERS, NATURE LOVERS, AND DESIGN ENTHUSIASTS.

This brand new ecologically-designed home in the Serene Lakes community backs up to a nature reserve open to cross country skiing, hiking and biking and is a five minute walk from beautiful Lake Serena and Lake Dulzura. The home incorporates natural building materials and incredible detailing in a rustic and modern style. The owner/ architect designed the house to embrace the outdoors with generous porches adjoining most rooms and with windows framing the surrounding pine forest. Bird watch and stargaze from the house.
