About the Property
Chateau / Country House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)
The gentle breezes bouncing off the water allow the palms to sing one of nature’s sweetest lullabies. The quiet rustling of the fronds can easily sing one into a deep and relaxing sleep. As the sun bounces over the horizon in the morning, the bird songs, along with the lullaby of the palms, can bring one quietly into the new morning and fully refreshed to face the day. Having coffee on the porch, along with the breathtaking beauty of the morning is a site to behold. The ospreys are probably out feeding, and one may hear the cry of an eagle. There are red headed woodpeckers, humming birds, butterflies and so much more. The lake with all its beauty is shared for the enjoyment of all.
This beautiful home is located on 2/3 of an acre on the banks of the beautiful Lake George in Central Florida. We offer an executive home. The yard is fenced and animals are allowed.
Step through the front door and into the living room which is furnished with a black leather sectional designed for comfort and relaxation, slate coffee table and accent table, a big screen plasma tv, as well as dvd player, with an array of movies available for use. There is a 9 x 12 area rug that adds to the comfort of this room. The window coverings are from Mexican blankets that add to the rustic splash of color to the room. The east end of the living room is walled by a 12 foot sliding glass door, which opens into a screened porch looking over the lake and pool area. The porch is furnished with 4 sitting chairs and a black dinner table with six wicker type chairs.
Leaving the living room, step through the double door opening into the eat-in kitchen, which features a pub style table and chairs, hickory cabinets, almond porcelain double sinks, set into the peacock green granite counter tops with a tile backsplash. The kitchen is compactly designed having everything within easy reach. There are updated appliances including a flat top digital stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice maker and ice/water dispenser. The kitchen is fully stocked with all non-food items, such as ceramic dinnerware, flatware, pots and pans, bowls, utensils and bake ware. There is a coffee pot, blender, and mixer. The slide in range is installed in the base cabinets that divide the kitchen and sitting room. This design allows the cook not only to be able to peer out through the French doors, once again viewing the lake and pool, but also to be able to interact with family or friends in the sitting area while preparing meals and snacks. Matched tile is the main flooring throughout the home
A two sided fireplace graces the sitting room off the kitchen as well as the living room. The sitting room houses a love seat and two recliners designed as a multi-functioning room including a reading area, a quiet room, visiting with friends and family away from the main stream living area, or keeping the cook company to name a few. The fireplace in the sitting room is faced with stone, laid by a master stone layer local to the area, and a solid wood mantel purchased at a local lumber mill, and designed for this home.
The stairway and master bedroom upstairs have bamboo hardwood floors. This master suite offers a king size four poster bed with luxury linens, a quilt comforter and matching pillow shams. The bed has a Simmons Beauty Rest mattress. There are night tables and lamps on either side of the bed. The room has chest of drawer as well as a cedar lined closet with a mirrored pocket door. The master bath upstairs hosts an oversized shower with three shower heads and a bench. This shower is tiled in slate from the shower floor, up the walls and the bench all the way to the ceiling. The entire bathroom floor is tiled with two inch slate tiles, as well as the sixty inch vanity counter top which houses two hand painted Mexican sinks. The vanity is taller than normal in order to cause less bending. The mirror over the vanity has a dark hand painted frame complimenting the slate, hand painted sinks and the dark wood of the vanity. The home also boasts a screened porch off the master suite upstairs, offering a quiet nook away from everything, overlooking the pool and the lake, furnished with lake worn wicker, to complement the lake life style. There is a coffee table as well. This is a great place to snooze, read or just relax. This porch offers an amazing view of the lake below. It is the best vantage point on the property for lake gazing.
The second bedroom is an oversized bedroom on the ground floor furnished with a kings size bed, a dresser, nightstand and chest of drawers. There are French doors that open to the lake front. This room has ceiling fans and matched bedroom lamps in the dragon fly stained glass pattern. This bed also has a Simmons Beauty Rest mattress for the ultimate in support. This is the only room that has carpet flooring.
The third bedroom is a smaller bedroom with bunk beds and an antique chest of drawers.
Most rooms have ceiling fans. Internet and satellite tv are provided. The downstairs bathroom is tile, with the vanity and linen closet built out of hickory. The bathrooms are stocked with towels and extra linen if needed. The vanity has a cultured marble top with double scalloped sinks. There is an oversized shower with 2 shower heads, a shower bench and enclosed with clear glass shower doors. This is also a cabana bath, with a door leading out to the pool and lake area. This bath is also home to the full size stackable washer and dryer.
Matched tile is the main flooring throughout the home. There is a covered deck in the back yard as well as a swimming pool with lounge chairs. The pool has a swim out that allows some seating facing the lake. A great way to spend an afternoon! The St. Johns River flows North through the middle of Lake George on its trek to Jacksonville, where it empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Lake George is roughly 7 miles wide and 13 miles long, with numerous springs feeding it. Wildlife is abundant around the lake. Eagles and Osprey both nest in the surrounding areas and feed from the lake. The lake offers not only beauty, but also an array of lake and ocean life such as blue crabs, shrimp, bass, brim, as well as an occasional manatee that maybe be seen in the springs or the runs from the lake to the springs. Remember even though this home is in a private area, wildlife can be seen from time to time including herons, egrets, raccoons, foxes, squirrels, black bear, owls, wild turkeys and more.
Salt Springs offers a few restaurants and a small grocery store, a Subway, gas stations, and a small post office. Salt Springs is located about 7 miles north of the home.
Orlando is roughly 1 and ½ hours south and, of course, offers all of the theme parks as well as shopping.
St. Augustine is an easy day trip to the northeast. A place where one can enjoy exploring historic locations such as, Castillo de San Marcos built from 1672 thru 1695, which is a reminder of the strength of the Spanish rule in the New World, or the St. Augustine Lighthouse built in 1874 and its accompanying museum open year round. Another must see, is the St. Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum. Even though we only listed three historical sites, please remember that St. Augustine is one of our oldest cities, with too much history to share in the space allowed. Other activities available are deep sea fishing, surfing, swimming and sun bathing. St. Augustine is a wealth of history open to one and all. Great shopping is also available at The St. Augustine Premium Outlets.
Let’s not forget Daytona Beach, which is Home of the Daytona International Speedway. With an easy hour or so drive, you could be sitting in the middle of two of the biggest races of the season. Or how about bike week? The roads to and from Daytona are all welcome to travelers for bike week. There is nothing like a scenic trip through the forest on a bike.
