Golden Retreat named for our two retrievers, is a new and unique to Lake Gaston, this farmhouse inspired custom designed cottage overlooks the main lake while sitting at the edge of a private cove offering the serenity of calm water but with the stunning views of the main lake.
In the private foliage of an expansive 4 acre lot, you’ll enjoy both indoor and outdoor living taken to new heights. Starting at the lake level, you’ll walk out to a two story custom designed boat house featuring a covered outdoor living room with fans, summer classic sofas, swings rockers, dining table all directly sitting over the lake. The second floor of the boat house features a “jump zone” to entertain the kids for hours and luxury loungers for sunning. You’ll walk up through plush grass to an outdoor bathroom and showers making lake life easier. Gather in the evening fireside by the trees in the Adirondack chairs around the classic fire pit for smores, coco, and hot toddys.
Enter the home from the lake level to an immaculate basement with comfy sofa and chairs, a 55” HD entertainment system, a rustic a bar, pool hall, and game table. Allow the children to stay in the bunk room featuring six custom built in beds each with their own lighting and charging stations. Kids thrill to stay in this room.
Continue up to the main level for breathtaking view on top rustic reclaimed hardwood floors and beams. With an open floor plan, you’ll enjoy a gourmet kitchen designed by the chef himself. The bar counter seats 5 allowing guest to watch as the cooks prep and opens to an adjacent outdoor kitchen featuring state of the art new grill. The living room extending from the kitchen features a rustic stone fireplace and beautiful furnishings that then extend to covered porch featuring rockers, lanterns, fans, and views like no other. The dining room adjacent to the living room is planked by old barn beams, seats 10 around the farm table, and also opens up to an outdoor dining room under a pergola accented with hanging lanterns that twinkle between the starts and neighboring trees. The main floor also features a spacious master ground level suite and bathroom as well as a powder room for guest.
The top floor of the cottage features a master suite with king size sleigh bed, a spa like bathroom with a soaking tub and a private outdoor sleeping porch that allows you to swing or sleep with a treehouse affect. The other three bedrooms with their plush bedding, window seats/ pillows, chandeliers, and beautiful views and not be missed.
The location could not be more ideal. In Roanoke Reserve just off the main lake, you are almost directly across the lake from Morning Star Marina where you can rent boats as well as dine and experience live musical entertainment and family fun. The grocery store, hardware store, and other local dining options are just 5 miles away by car. And lot itself gives you private cove swimming, fishing and living with main lake views and boating opportunities.
