The design and craftsmanship of this estate will stand the test of time! Its architecture has been appreciated since before the days of the early Civil War! As time goes on and on – its design will remain unchanged and will never go out of style – as do most styles of homes. The home was designed for family living – but especially a Family who loves to gather friends and family members into their own environment. The rooms are all very large – above average – so that everyone will be comfortable. The Kitchen is family-friendly and opens to the Family Room – and each have beautiful views of the lake. Many chefs can cook in this big Kitchen – and others can either sit and snack or watch the cooks from the long granite counter topped Serving/Snack Bars. The exterior has all the features anyone would ever want in a home! A charming Brick Terrace – an oversized Pool – a heated Spa – adjoining Cabana with wet bar, refrigerator - and especially a Boat Dock!
