Escape from the world, or Escape to the lakes...

Enclosed on three sides by wooded treelines, this magnificantly renovated 1898 plantation home sits at the rear of the landscaped tract that removes it from the nearest approach.
Family and visitors enter through grounds that provide beauty and color almost year-round with the variety of plantings that include camellias, candy stripes, holly, snowdrops, narcissus, daffodils, Japanese magnolia, peach trees, apple trees fig trees and bridal veil.
For private retreat, the warm, knotty-pine walled den with fireplace is a family gathering place. Or for further privacy, the master bedroom suite's dressing room is twice-removed from the rest of the home, accessible only via the bedroom. The triple arched glass brick windows above the whirlpool tub on the southern side of the home provide for tension-relieving massage therapy by the light of the rising or setting sun.
Long a popular gathering place for small and larger groups of friends, the kitchen, sunroom, dining room, den and living room provide a fluid space for guests to mingle and circulate with ease and comfort.
The spacious 48-foot wide front porch is your private retreat for enjoying the afternoon shade, or quiet moonlit evenings, sometimes in the company of the deer, foxes and wild turkeys that may be seen passing by from time to time.
While the best of the old has been preserved, the best of the new has been blended in to make modern life in this Old House the most it can be.
Across the front, along the grand front porch, the original wooden windows with period glass have been preserved. Elsewhere, the effects of age and desire for comfort and efficiency have given way to more updated, energy-efficient windows. A new roof, new wiring and plumbing fixtures provide for safety and dependability. New ceramic tile flooring in the kitchen, sunroom and master bath add simple elegance and durability. And new siding on the home's exterior preserves the traditional appearance while virtually eliminating maintenance concerns for years and years to come.
Boasting approximately 3,322 square feet of heated living area, this three bedroom home can provide a fourth bedroom by adding a bed to the dressing room downstairs. Two full bathrooms are downstairs, while the upstairs contains two bedrooms, a full bathroom and a half-bath. So family and guests are provided for, with the two substantial water heaters eliminating any waiting for the "next shower."
