Charm is evident from the moment you pull onto the permeable paver grass driveway and approach the fieldstone/cedar shake carriage garage...you know there's something special just beyond. You capture amazing views of the lake as you take an enjoyable stroll down the beautiful teak stairways. Positioned perfectly along the shore and opened to the grand views of the lake, is home...wrapped in cedar shakes blending naturally into its environment. You enter through an inviting and spacious 12 x 14 screened porch overlooking the lake, very enjoyable setting with a wonderful summer breeze. As you proceed into the home you're instantly part of the historical charm of old school Tippy...from original knotty pine walls & ceilings, built-ins, and pine flooring...stamped with decades of character. Feel the warmth of the beautiful main level living room fieldstone fireplace while capturing the stunning views from the wall of lakeside windows. What a wonderful open space with tons of light. The added convenience of a main level bedroom is offered along with adjacent full bath. Those looking for a little separation with beautiful lake views will enjoy the upper level vaulted suite. The open area allows for a large master bedroom or the possibility of creating two separate bedrooms...this room offers tremendous flexibility along with a full bath. The key to any great lake home is the ability to conveniently entertain on the lakeside. This property not only allows for convenience, but does it with style and creativity. The character is revived once again and carried into the lower level kitchen which is positioned directly off the spacious lakeside deck. What a treat to gather at the bar seating for any occasion, raise the windows up, and enjoy the summer breeze while overlooking the lake. The ease of coming and going from the spacious 20 x 30 teak deck lends to all sorts of venues. Continue the entertaining or simply relax along the lakeside patio...just a few steps down from the deck. Wonderful and private setting for sunbathing or evening bonfires. The added convenience of the lakeside concrete storage area under the deck makes it an ease for housing all the lake toys. Enjoy everything this shoreline has to offer. Additional living space above garage is an open canvas just asking to be finished...allowing for creative use of space. Perfectly situated on the rolling hills of Kalorama and all within putting distance of the Country Club.
