About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Home is a two story octagon shaped lake front house with a westerly view for beautiful sunsets. Fishing, bird watching, golf and tourism at its best while relaxing in a very safe country setting. Second floor outside observation deck wraps half way around the house. Many wild birds fish in our pond and graze in our grass, including: ospreys, eagles, blue herons, wood storks, sandhill cranes, egrets, ibis, owls, pileated woodpeckers and many more. You may see an otter or more swimming in our lagoon.

The second floor master bedroom includes a king size bed, half bath and double set of french doors that open onto deck. The second bedroom has two single beds and the third bedroom has a queen size bed. The second floor full bath is in the hallway.

The second floor kitchen has a full refrigerator/freezer, stove and oven, double stainless steel sinks and a microwave. Large counter top with stools. Comes with coffeemaker, toaster, pots & pans, dishes, glasses and utensils included.
