Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Farmers in western Kentucky near Lake Barkley.
Why the Owner Chose Cadiz, KY, USA:
This home fulfills our dream of owning waterfront property on beautiful Lake Barkley. We intend to use this property in our lifetime and have created a trust to pass it on to our family and hope that it will provide years and years of fun and togetherness for all og them.. It is large enough to accommodate 3 and 4 generation reunions and cozy enough for the two of us to spend quiet time alone.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
After extensive shopping, we finally found a home that did not require a huge set of steps to reach our own private dock. With a gently sloping lawn leading to the water, we definitely were interested before we even stepped inside this spacious custom built home. We had casually looked at waterfront property for years and had a list of 'must haves', that we would not compromise on. This home fulfills all of our desires: solid construction, within an hour from our farm home, good major road access, quiet and sparsely populated neighborhood, gentle slope with no steps to the lake, private covered dock, southern exposure, screened porch, ideal spot for a fire pit, expansive decks and a view of lake from all the major rooms for easy 'outside living'. Furnishing the home was a labor of love. Using Ellen's handmade quilts, and her sewing expertise plus solid wood furniture, much of which has been refinished by David, furnishing our home is an ongoing project. We are able to use what we both love creating and enjoy knowing our guests appreciate our efforts. Truly our ideal family vacation home.
