This timber framed lakehouse currently has over 5,800 square feet of heated space and 10,000 square feet under roof. The home was 4 years in the planning/building process in order to ensure a wonderful openness and flow for families and/or business leaders to be able to make lifelong memories and enjoy time together. Construction was completed August of 2012. While it does have an open floor plan and many seating areas in which to visit, it also has private areas for rest and reflection. Beautifully perched above serene Lake Oconee, the house nestles into naturalized landscaping and has outdoor 'rooms'. The view is spectacular from dawn to dusk, whether you enjoy gazing off the back patio from your rocking chair, or sitting with a cup of coffee on the screened in back porch. There is a crystal clear infinity edge pool with a shallow wading area for adults to play with their toddlers and deep end for the good swimmers in the crowd. A heated spa is a great way to relax before turning in for the night. For those with a more active time in mind, a ping pong table seems to bring out the competitive side of people, while there is also fishing off the dock. The house is on a beautiful point lot, which provides spectacular views from every window. Here inside Reynolds Lake Oconee there is a world class golf community, which boasts 6 courses, 2 of which have hosted the PGA tour, and several 5 star restaurants as well as the nearby Ritz Carlton, a world class resort. Here is a trivia fact for you--did you know that country music artist Carrie Underwood had her wedding at the Ritz Carlton here on Lake Oconee?!
As you drive down the driveway and the house comes into view, you are greeted by the golden tones of the cedar and cypress house and the lush green of the naturalized landscaping. Rocks and stonework accent the yard and mark the paths around the house.
As you walk up to the front door, your eyes wander across the great room to the glistening infinity pool that blends into the lake beyond. The main floor has a spectacular masonry fire place with seating around it, a study behind the fireplace has a 55 inch hd tv screen that disappears into a cabinet with a very comfortable, sectional sofa. The spacious, fully equipped kitchen is designed to cook for a large number of guests as it has an island with a sink for prep work as well as the main kitchen sink, a dishwasher, two garbage disposals, a separate high capacity ice maker, and wine cooler.
