About the property

Connect with family, friends, and nature in our 2-story spacious home on beautiful Lake Palestine. Enjoy outstanding views of the lake from two porches: a main-level enclosed sun room that gives all-weather enjoyment and a downstairs screened-in porch open to the lake breezes. You can walk down our shaded lawn to the dock on the lake where you can swim, float, fish, relax, and tie up your boat. The backyard provides relaxation under tall pine trees - watch the kids play, grill a favorite meal.

About Sharon Huvelle

My parents had a lake house built on a lot on a small lake not far from Lake Palestine in the late 1960's. I loved our trips to the lake with my family and later with my husband, children and my siblings' kids. As our family grew through marriages and babies, we spent most holidays and summers at the lake. During the days, we swam, boated, skied, floated, played on the lawn, sunbathed. In the evenings, we'd grill and lake-watch. We also loved to gather in the living room and play games - spoons, 20 Questions, the dictionary game. From the oldest to the youngest, there was much laughter and togetherness.

I also loved alone-time on the porch, reading and looking at the lake.

Sharon Huvelle purchased this house in 2013

Why Sharon Huvelle chose Chandler

We were charmed by the lake views and spacious comfort of The Water's Edge the moment we first stepped inside.

The Water's Edge also reminded me of the special times that my family shared and that I wanted to continue.

What a great house and view of the lake. Wonderful weather for fishing or just hanging out in the sun room listening to the birds chirp. Would love to go back!

Perfect Lakefront Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay! When we arrived, the home was very clean and Sharon made sure we had all the information we needed during our stay. It was open, roomy and we really enjoyed the upper porch and spent most of our time there looking out over the lake when not out on the water. Boat house/slip was great! No problem docking our 24' boat and the kids were able to catch a few catfish there while we watched from the porch at night. Storm moved in on us the morning we were leaving and Sharon was very understanding and let us stay a little longer until it had passed. We packed up and had a quick ping pong tournament until weather cleared and we were able to take the boat out. We all had a great time! We would definitely recommend staying here as the place was beautiful, people were great and it was very relaxing. Thank you again for everything!

Awesome clean property!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for a company vacation and the house was perfect for our needs. The beds were comfortable and the view was gorgeous. The ping pong table was a hit with the boys! The house was immaculate and we hated to leave.

Owner's Response: Thanks Brenda for your great review. Our dock is outside, over the lake, and comes with the joys of close contact with nature! My housekeeper can clean on Monday, and on Tuesday, those critters move right back in! I wish we could control some undesirable aspects of nature, but I haven't found the way yet!
