BRING THE LAKE INSIDE!!! Into this four bedroom, four-and-a-half bath elegantly designed and immaculately maintained lakefront home in the Chestatee Community of Dawson County. Perhaps no other home available on Lake Lanier features the Lake as such a beautifully prominent, striking, and accessible feature of the home from both within and without.
Streetscaped scenery and quiet pathways brings you to a modern, craftsman-styled and gabled home of natural shake façade and roof with twin-leveled fluted columns where a winding flagstone walkway takes you through a lovingly designed landscape of flower and variety up to a stack-stoned covered formal entry.
Once inside the entryway through double glassed doors the golden hues of solid-plank oak flooring welcome you beneath an open great room with ceilings some two levels above you. Molding highlights, transom windows, custom wood shutters, built in bookcases, and wainscoting may catch your eye along with the understated glow of warm-sheened finishes throughout.
This main level of the home is spacious and ascendent yet amenable to sectioning into cozy enclaves for dining, den, breakfast, living, and entertainment; and is your gateway to every section of the home. And through every eastern-facing window of the home – unimpeded views of the Lake. Up close.
The kitchen is elegantly apportioned with the eye taking in the cadence of white, stainless, and stone. Salt-n-pepper variegated granite counters encircle the cookspace and there's an island bar; fine stainless appliances stand at the ready including double convection ovens and gas cooktop. Undercounter lighting highlights the block-tiled backsplash and soft close cabinetry is reflective of the quality and thoughtfulness in design and construction of the home. A two-car epoxy-floor garage provides additional entry from the front side and there’s an adjacent TV room to provides a cozy and plush area to take in a show; a pantry and laundry are adjoining to the kitchen.
The Master Suite is a spacious and inviting place to retire for the evening and even from here you can lie with your head on the pillow and view the Lake. There’s a sitting area and generous His-n-Hers walk-in closets. The Master Bath is a pleasing realization of twin granite vanities, alcove sitting area, tiled flooring, oblique half-hexagon glassed shower with steam, wainscoting, and solid-planking walls.
Step out onto the covered porch and the Lake is – right there! Not down a drop-off, not around the bend or maybe in the winter you can see a reflection, but immediately accessible both visually and physically. Every square foot and every chair comes with an expansive view. The space is imminently relaxing and visually pleasing with the upscale design carried through. There’s expansive room for dining, friends, and family but alternately one with a book can enjoy a comforting and private feel.
Down on the terrace level is “where it’s at!” From here the Lake visually laps right at your feet and is a part of the setting. A choice area for entertainment, relaxing, dining, activities, and TV. The bar with its solid stone top comes with twin dishwashers, a mini-fridge, wine cooler and glass rack and there’s an adjacent and spacious walk-in pantry/storage area. An open layout and stacked-stone fireplace provide options for usability. Details abound yet again - sculpted oak flooring, transomed windows (every one peering onto the Lake), attractive moldings, and a full bath of tile and solid-planking with a glass block shower. All accessed from above from a wide oak-planked stairway and landing. Plus there’s a spacious gym room and equipment room.
Stepping outside onto the terrace - The Lake is the centerpiece of the setting. Overlays of stone – flagstone, stacked stone, heavy rock and monolith slab natural stone steps - are all part of the scaping. There’s an expanse that can accommodate a big party but also quietude and intimacy for one or two. A grilling island centers the space with a cobblestone patio immediately in front, over to the side a cozy covered porch looks over the Lake and further down is a circular patio and firepit poised right on the edge of the Lake. The feeling you get here looking out over the water – the soul responds - a fusion both inspired and relaxed, fulfilled and excited. All here within the immediate boundaries of the home. And there's a single-slip dock with hoist with your name on it in the Community marina.
And what a Community to be in! Beautifully laid out with designer-home streetscpapes, a Master 18 hole golfing community with expansive clubhouse - the scenic green-lawn views are beautiful even if you don’t golf! - a community lodge, walking trails along the Lake and paved sidewalks, croquet and tennis courts, a junior Olympic pool and large lakeside pavilion, plus community activities. Plenty to do right here in the community and within walking distance! The location is superconvenient to Hwy. 400 plus major shopping and dining but nary of whisper of sound from any will you hear.
A synergy of setting, location, repose, and amenities and a beautiful place for family and friends; superb for entertaining a crowd yet enveloping and intimate for one or two. For weekends or for life. $1,290,000.
