Online only Auction for this 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home. Ending March 30th 2017 at 6:00pm
The exterior of this grand home is maintenance-free vinyl with handsome brick accents. The roof is newer with gutter-guards all around, making gutter cleaning an unnecessary task.
Enjoy beautiful lake views and the convenience of the nearby park, which makes it so easy for your children, your grandchildren, or visiting children to enjoy the new playground, sledding on the popular hill across the street, and/or fishing opportunities.
Walking around 1305 Lake Shore, you’ll find fenced-in gardens, which give it an East Coast Cape look. There are large perennial plantings all around the yard which are very easy to maintain. And there is plenty of backyard past the gardens for sports and larger play area including horseshoes! The landscape architecture includes landscape blocks with tiered and cascaded foliage and flowers.
The large outside deck on the west end of the house is 23 ‘x 23′ -perfect for all your entertaining needs. Enter the lower-level family room from the deck or go up the outside stairs to the upper deck and enter the solarium.
The attached three-car garage is expansive with extra room for storage, children’s toys, and adult toys (motorcycles, boats, etc).
As you enter the home from the garage pass door there is a conveniently located half bath. No need to go through the house. There is also a large walk-in mudroom (9’x8′) with a large closet area. Built-in lockers for the kids would be great here- or maybe an extra refrigerator or freezer could go here.
Next is the very spacious main floor laundry room (15’x14′) There is an abundance of countertops and cabinets, including a lowered computer desk area. With the natural light of a skylight, the possibilities are endless. Exit here to the outside gardens where Mother Nature wraps her arms around you within a fenced area.
From the laundry/office, walk into the Dining Room (17x 13) with oak hardwood floors, cherry stained crown moldings and trim. The home, throughout, is decorated in tastefully neutral colors. There is an Open Concept to the large adjacent living room area (19×18) with majestic brick fireplace with gas insert. Enjoy the panoramic water view and the open park across the street. This room is large enough so that the baby grand piano it currently houses looks lost.
Continue through to the kitchen with cherry cabinets and the exterior brick accents which have been brought inside. You will find recessed lighting, and a very large pantry which friends refer to as the “711”! There is a ceramic tile backsplash and an additional built-in oven plus regular appliances. You can look through a large glassless window to the Solarium, providing a nature view from every room. You can even feel the heat from the indoor wood fire pit when in use. The most beautiful hardwood oak floors adorn the kitchen for quality and character.
The expansive year-round Solarium (40×14) where 36 feet of glass provides a wonderful source of passive solar heat, all winter long. There are ceramic tile floors, three skylights, two ceiling fans, recessed lighting, and three very large sliding glass doors to open the room to the gardens outside -perfect for entertaining. The brick accent wall brings a natural feel to the room along with indoor wood fire pit as the center of attraction complete with stove pipe properly vented to the outside. Looking to keep it cool in the summer. The room darkening and insulating shades will do the trick.
From the front door of the home, enter the large welcoming foyer. Continue to the living room or to the guest suite (15×12). This guest suite (or “mother-in-law” suite) has a large walk-in closet and its own private full bath. From here you may continue to the kitchen and on to the solarium or to the Master Bedroom Suite. The master suite (20×13) has cherry-stained crown molding. Enjoy the spacious master bath with two separate sink and vanity areas. Step into the whirlpool tub or enjoy the tiled shower. There is a VERY large walk in closet with separate sides for each person. And you can exit the bedroom area to the Solarium! How convenient.
The lower level of 1305 Lake Shore Drive is amazing. You will find neutral and durable Berber carpeting. There is a lighted spacious landing area at the bottom of the stairs, a foyer of sorts.
Bedroom #3 (11 x 20) is tastefully decorated in a neutral color with knotty pine wainscoting. Bedroom #4 (15×13) is another good-sized bedroom. This home provides all the room you need for your large family or guests. Also on the lower level is a 10×15 office/homework/craft room (or it could be a fifth bedroom.) With its linoleum flooring it is virtually indestructible and great for kids or adult crafts. Lots of countertop space and cabinets. Or maybe it’s a music room! It has a big closet (as do all the bedrooms) and recessed lighting. There is a full bath with large linen closet to service the lower level.
The lower level family room (23 x17) has a large sliding-glass patio door to the outside lower deck. This deck allows you to sit amongst the trees and natural landscaping. It is 23×23 with built-in seating. Stairs lead you to the upper deck off the Solarium, again placing you amidst the fragrance of nature. You may also enjoy the view of beautiful Beaver Dam Lake.
The unfinished basement area is clean, dry, and could be very useful. The floor and block walls are nicely painted. There is tons of storage and still plenty of room for an exercise area!
This home has a brand-new furnace and AC unit installed in June 2014 and the ducts have all been cleaned in July. There is also a radon mitigation system in place.
