This home is unique because it is designed specifically for entertaining and capturing the amazing lake views. There are actually 2 structures as part of this compound with one housing the main kitchen and living space along with 3 bedrooms and the other recreation room that has a smaller kitchen and ½ bath. While in this unit you almost feel you are floating on the lake. This home is built on a narrow lake lot that once held an unusable home that had to be removed and replaced with this structure. There was minimal disturbance to the surrounding area and large oak trees. Because this home is built under the shade of the large trees there is minimal heat and air conditioning necessary to maintain a comfortable environment.
