Description

Enjoy the serenity and peacefulness that this 4 bedroom, 3 bath custom lake home has to offer. Located in a quiet cove just off from the main lake at Sundown Lake. You will be amazed at all this location has to offer.

Secluded and comfortable 

This lakehouse property offers a beautiful life lived close to nature but with ample room and amenities for family and friends. A drive across a wildflower meadow takes you down a winding drive to the house which is nestled into the hillside, surrounded by trees overlooking a grassy point on a private cove. 

 

A modern house with nature-inspired details

This lodge-style open-plan modern home features high ceilings and lots of windows. Solid quarter-sawn oak doors throughout house add to the natural feel. The impressive centerpiece of the living room is a handbuilt fieldstone fireplace. Ceiling fans throughout the house keep air moving. 

 

Live life at the water’s edge

You can’t beat a water view. And this house offers 250 feet of shoreline. Sit on the dock and enjoy your morning coffee. If you’re a swimmer, you’ll enjoy doing laps surrounded by trees in the no-wake cove. If you love to fish, you can simply drop a line off the dock and pull in dinner. Kayakers will find easy access to the lake from your own shore; just slide in a paddle off. And this deep water cove (more than 7 feet deep in the middle) allows easy boat access. Inside this spectacular home, you can see the lake from every room. 

 

Enjoy a perch in the trees overlooking the water

Grill and dine on the deck overlooking the cove which runs the width of the house and is large enough for grilling and cocktail seating areas as well as a large table to accommodate the whole family and guests. Grow your own herb garden in pots along the deck. Sunny in the morning and shaded in the evening, it allows the perfect setting for coffee, drinks, dinner, and after hours cocktails listening to the whippoorwills calling and toads singing in the cove. Summer brings lightening bugs that light up the night. And if stargazing is your thing, the night sky is filled with constellations because there’s no light pollution.

 

If you love wildlife, sitting on this deck is like a being in an IMAX theatre, with birds, such as rose-breasted grosbeaks, purple and gold finches, cardinals, wood peckers, and hummingbirds, flitting back and forth in the trees. The woods below have other interesting inhabitants and you’ll frequently see turkeys, foxes, and deer wandering through. The cove has eagles and great blue herons that fish, creating a nature show with no end.  

 

Custom touches everywhere

This three-story lodge-style home features natural high-end materials: hardwood oak flooring, handmade quartersawn oak woodwork, doors, and staircase, locally sourced rustic beams and mantel, natural fieldstone fireplace with bluestone hearth, custom lighting, and two master suites. This energy efficient home is nestled into the hillside of beautiful oak and hickory trees. 

 

Family and friends

With 4 bedrooms and some well-placed fold-out couches, this house sleeps 12 in comfort.
