Whimsical Wonderful Lake Cottage: This property actually evokes joy as you enter its gates. A large fish greets you, then a the "boat house" and garage/workshop catch your eye to the right. They are dressed just as the home is, and would make a wonderful guest house if that's your preference. Right now they serve as workshops and storage for a large boat. Yet another fence draws your eye into the first courtyard and to the covered front porch. There is so much to see here between the gorgeous landscaping and thoughtful architecture that it takes you a minute to move forward. Enter the porch, where you'll want to stay for a bit...then through the storm door where you're in for an eye feast! There is a beautiful stone fireplace going up to a vaulted ceiling. Everywhere you turn, everything is just glorious. The kitchen has a skylight and gas range. There is a laundry area/pantry that is even delightful. The great room is comfortable and enjoys a beautiful view of large water on Lake Greenwood. This is a split open plan, which is just perfect for entertaining and sharing. Bedrooms to either side of the home share gorgeous lake views. The master suite has its own patio facing the lake. You'll enjoy the bathroom/walk-in closet combinations which are again - exceptionally well done. The guest suite is like something out of a magazine as well. Then there is the screened porch spanning the entire lake side of the home. The pictures tell the story of a wonderful outdoor living room. On one end you can climb in the hammock, pull the string, and rock yourself to sleep enjoying lake breezes. On the other end, an octagonal addition makes the most of an open air dining area. Two rocking chairs point you to afternoons taking in breath taking sunsets. Outside, landscaping that affords you both beauty and privacy. There are magical fences, climbing roses, magnolias, you name it. Even the outdoor grill is finished with an antique fireplace fitting. Look over the end of the porch area and take in the cupola which has lights on at night. Keep going....you have yet to see the more than $60,000 dollars in retaining walls and dock that take this home right over the top. The view is spectacular. There is a lift for your boat, and covered seating when you want to rest....right on the water. This place is like no other you have ever seen. Every square inch is well thought out, well tended - well loved. New hvac units in 2015....it's not just beautiful....it's ready!
