The exterior of this waterfront home showcases its natural beauty with wood siding mixed with incredible stonework, red accents and eye-catching architecture. Built in 1950, this one-of-a-kind home was cherished for years before getting a complete renovation to maintain is beauty and charm.  

When walking into this abode, guests are greeted with a sunshine yellow paint color, an intricate layout, Brazilian cherry hardwood floors and stunning views of the lake from every room. One of the first things that catches the eye are the unique spiral staircases leading to the upper and lower levels.

Before wandering to the other levels of this home, make a pit stop in the gourmet kitchen. With separate wall ovens, a gas cooktop with a warming drawer and black quartz countertops, this kitchen is a dream come true.  

One striking feature that makes this kitchen stand out among the rest are the exposed ceiling beams that add a rustic appeal to the home. The kitchen features an eat-in breakfast nook perfect for family meals and entertaining. There is also a hidden dumbwaiter that allows for easy service to the other floors.

Leading from the kitchen is the dining room with a gorgeous stone fireplace that is reminiscent of the exterior stonework of the home.  

The master bedroom is made for leisure with two ceiling fans, radiant heated floors, a stunning, white-washed fireplace and a luxury bathroom with a walk-in shower. There are three other bedrooms in the house, for a total of four bedrooms, two full bathrooms and two half baths.  

The intricate stonework from the fireplace in the dining room extends to the lower-level living room. Although there is no fireplace in the living room, there is a beautiful wood stove. Natural light floods this room because of the large windows and French doors leading to the back deck, which is the perfect spot for entertaining with the small wet bar located next to the doors.
