Enter through the covered portico and into the first-floor living space. To your right is a cozy day room with a large fireplace, built-in bookcases, and a comfy couch. Down the hall is a theater room, complete with plush, overstuffed seating, a projection screen with Netflix, and even a bar area for making movie night snacks. Across from the theatre room, you'll find a light-filled living space with wide-open views out to the lake. The overstocked, chef-inspired kitchen features warm, wood-tone cabinets and granite countertops. Just off the kitchen is a convenient first-floor bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a laundry room.
Up the staircase, you'll find a gorgeous primary suite. With a king-sized bed and two separate sitting areas, each with televisions and lake views, this master suite is more like a luxurious private apartment. The en suite bath has a double vanity and a huge soaking tub. There's even a separate laundry area! Down the hall is another guest bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a private, en suite bath with cheerful blue tile accents. One more bedroom on this floor also has its own en suite bath and a queen-sized bed.
The fifth bedroom is located above the garage and has the feel of a private pied-a-terre; it's absolutely perfect for in-laws, grandparents, older teens, or couples looking for more privacy. This secluded suite has its own separate entrance, a comfy sitting area, a kitchenette, a queen-sized bed, and a full-sized futon.
When you're ready for the water, there are many options available! Head outside to take a dip in the oversized, screened-in pool that overlooks the lake. Or make your way down to the freshwater, man-made lake that was created specifically for optimal water skiing. The world-renowned Cori Pickos Waterski and Wakeboard School is just around the bend. If you're craving the sugary white sand and turquoise water of the Gulf of Mexico, there are several public beaches only a short drive away. There's also a freestanding hot tub with room for five to six people to soothe sore muscles at the end of the day. Lakeside Escape is surrounded by a peaceful state forest and wetlands where you'll experience breathtaking, technicolor sunsets over the lake and superior stargazing in the evenings.
Every detail has been thoughtfully accommodated in this lakeside escape. Each bedroom has high-quality, memory foam mattresses. A new propane grill and a charcoal grill allow you to prepare juicy burgers or delicious, fresh seafood dinners with ease. The horseshoe driveway has plenty of parking for your whole family, with room enough to park boats and jet skis, too! The central yet secluded location of this home allows you to escape the hustle-bustle and the crowds, while still being close enough to the action for a night out on the town or an afternoon of shopping.
