The farmhouse style is fresh but not too modern and not too traditional. It should have long-term appeal that never goes out of style.
This special home was designed to be the place where extended family and friends all want to spend their holidays. The floorplan and features accommodates large gatherings and overnight guests but still works when the owners are at home by themselves.
While the floorplan is really accommodating, it's that outdoor spaces that really make this home a winner. The outdoor living space has spectacular views to the water and the outdoor kitchen has earned the title of sports bar. Upstairs there's also a screened balcony overlooking the lake that would be great for sleeping on pleasant nights or relaxing with an evening cocktail.
Within the house, the great room plan features an open kitchen and family dining area plus a multi-purpose room that can be used for formal dining or a study. There are secret doors in the kitchen to enter the pantry and access the formal dining room. There's also a guest suite on the first level along with an office near the front door. The side-entry garage is oversized and there is a separate entry for family and friends that enter from the driveway.
The second level features two conventional bedrooms, a bunk room, adult playroom, home theater and another balcony. Unfortunately, it's so nice that guests may not want to leave.
