Property description

This 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home on the quiet west side of the lake will cause your stress & worries to simply evaporate. The home is nestled in trees on an inclined lot with more than ample deck space & a gazebo to enjoy the main channel view.
Guest will enter on the 2nd floor which contains the secondary master bedroom with a shared bath and a 2nd bedroom while overlooking the entirety of the main level living area & its vaulted ceilings as well as the expansive windows that give you a breathtaking view of the lake. Meander down the stairs to the main level where you will be greeted with a spacious eat in kitchen with a 3 seat peninsula that faces the lake along with a pantry and a cozy table & 4 chairs. Step through the family room which features a fireplace and 2 sleeper sofas and you will enter the master bedroom with its own slider out onto the deck. A short hallway passes by the powder room and empties you into the spacious laundry room where you find, along with the expected washer & dryer, a second fridge. Head downstairs to the ‘kids’ level that features 2 queen size beds, a full bath and its own slider that exits to their own deck. Head back upstairs and go through the family room slider to find yourself on the large sun-dappled deck where you can choose to sit under the tree coming through the deck, stroll into the gazebo where you will find an oversize teak table and plenty of seating under the lights & ceiling fan or amble on down the stairs past the lower level deck & fresh herb garden to the martini bar and concrete dock which has a good sized seating area, open slip, bar with refrigerator and Wet Steps ladder.
This home is located off the beaten path at the 50 mile marker where you will find the peace & tranquility you came to the lake for. There is plenty of parking including room for a boat trailer and there is a ramp just a few hundred feet away. While we are not located on the ‘busy’ side of the lake the town of Laurie is only 25 minutes away and the shops in Osage are only an hour away.
