Relax in upscale style in this gated European estate on deep water. This luxurious three level home with greater than 9000 sq feet of living space provides beautiful lake vistas from most every room. The main level is truly stunning. From the moment you enter the front two story foyer, the well appointed formal living room with gas fireplace will simultaneously invite you in and take your breath away. If you can pry yourself past this room, next door you find the spacious open family room with bountiful seating, flat screen HDTV, gaming table, and walls of lake-view windows. This level also contains the fully loaded gourmet stainless and granite professional kitchen with eating space for 20 at your choice of a formal dining room, casual dining room, kitchen bar and family room table. The huge upper patio balcony and lower level porch have additional outside seating and tables for 16, and the garden level has inside eating space for 10. Two spacious bedrooms with private baths are just down the hallway on this main level.
The custom hand forged wrought iron curved staircase leads you to the garden level. Here there is a second fully outfitted stainless kitchen to make two or more family stays easier. Also makes for a great party staging area since it is right off the pool patio. This light and bright level provides king and queen bedroom suites suited for royalty. There are two additional full bathrooms, one with access to the pool area. The nautical themed great-room area with adjacent game room provides ample seating for family gatherings and the kitchen bar provides additional space for eating and entertaining. Through the french doors, the pool and patio area await. The full sized non-deep free form pool is safe for all swimmers. If you prefer a break from the fun in the sun, try your luck at ping pong, foosball, cards at the two gaming tables, or the many board games provided in the gaming areas.
Steps take you down to the gradually sloping 200 foot trail to the double slip covered boat dock. Here views of mountains, lake, fish & wildlife abound.
