    Property Details

    Sanford Lake at its best. Located on a large high bank lot offering privacy afforded by mature trees, this 5 bed, 3.5 bath home boasts all the amenities you may seek in a fine lake home. First, it has ready access to the river so bring your kayaks until the lake returns. It also boasts a quality year round, suspended dock and steel seawall. The cedar shake roof provides longevity and antimicrobial properties that provide lasting value. Stepping inside you find a beautifully updated home with an abundance of space -- 5 beds, 3.5 baths, family room, great room, living room, formal dining space, office loft, hot tub room tucked conveniently within the interior of the home but uniquely closed off and with skylights to let the natural light permeate the space! Main floor master and main floor laundry are huge assets. The view from the kitchen is spectacular and the light coming in reflects off the gorgeous white cabinets and quartz tops. Stainless appliances round out the upscale look (and the fridge and dishwasher are both new within the last year). Gas fireplaces are found in the main floor living and the family room downstairs. The basement is fully finished. It's a perfect space for a mother in law suite or college student or just family living. It includes a bedroom, full bath and two fully finished living spaces as well as abundant storage spaces. All of that, pluls a walk out to the patio and gorgeously appointed back yard. Back outside you enjoy the views from a custom patio made for entertaining and featuring electric, lighting, a gazebo and a firepit. There is also a new swimming pool. The back yard has been recently groomed by a professional landscaper so things are trimmed up, cleaned up and looking good for summer. Come see today; nothing else like it!
