The Lake House

The lake house is a beautiful mix of informal charm and upscale elegance. The 4,500 sq ft home has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. It has 3 stories. If you prefer not to take the stairs, each floor can be accessed via the elevator. The interior is decorated with white walls, painted wood ceilings, and rich hardwood floors. The tall ceilings and bright white give the rooms a light and airy feel, while the polished hardwood adds luxury. Circular rugs are found throughout the home.

A flight of steps leads to the front entrance of the home, surrounded by lush tropical landscape, with a two-level balcony overhead. The exterior of the home features vertical white wood planks and brown wood shingles.

The glass front doors lead to the foyer. It is round, with a high cone-shaped ceiling that sets the tone for the rest of the home. The living room is breathtaking. It has a cathedral ceiling with a dark antique style chandelier. There’s a large white fireplace on one wall. The other wall is filled with large picture windows and French doors that open onto a large deck. The home has an open floor plan and lots of large windows. Along with the high ceilings, the entire home feels airy and cheerful as well as classy.

Each level has its own terrace. There is an outdoor kitchen and dining area that overlooks the lake, perfect for small entertaining. One of the most interesting features is the solar-powered boat slip.
