Two waterfront home sites, two covered slip docks, and over 456’ of shoreline.

Two covered boat slips ensure ample space for a pontoon and wake board boat, plus jet skis, and plenty of dock toys. A short driveway descends ever so slightly to the sprawling residence crowned with slate roof. Past a porch of heavy stacked stone, the front entry leads to a hospitable foyer, topped by a stunning icicle chandelier, and a vast great room beyond. Old-world, softly textured walls, hefty wood accents, hand-scraped hardwood floors, soaring ceilings, clerestory windows, and a fireplace with broad limestone surround create an impressive, yet serene, space. Adjacent to the great room, a handsome study incorporates a second fireplace, coffered ceiling, and lake views. The main-level master suite offers a spacious bedroom, luxurious bath with jetted tub and multi-head shower, and closet with center island.
