One of the best lots on St. Alban’s Bay – The owner’s complete renovation of this walkout two story makes this a rare combo of a great house, on great lot, in a great location. The expansive, flat lake side yard with a separate beach house is hard to duplicate. The rip rap shore with a sandy beach is perfect or swimming and the Western exposure brings fantastic sunsets! The 2007 renovation maximizes the lake side views by creating open entertaining spaces on the lake side with an open plan to that flows to the kitchen. Read more in the listing detail....


The living room serves as the center of the home with the family room and office to one side and the kitchen and dining areas to the other - yet all are easily tied together.In the kitchen, the cabinetry and millwork shows the craftsmanship through the inset doors and drawers, concealed under cabinet lights and full backsplash all the way around. Also note the plentiful creature comforts like: rolling shelves, hidden organizers, a second (copper) sink and appliance garages - not to mention the high end appliance package and a separate wine refrigerator in the kitchen and a second dishwasher in the bar area. The dramatic ceiling details incorporate high windows above the dining area to bring a extra daylight in to the home without sacrificing kitchen area cabinet space for extra windows along the side of the house.Another notable highlight of the main level is the screen porch with a wood burning fireplace - allowing for comfort and relaxation and easy flow out to the deck. Along the lake side of the house, the living room features a warm and inviting fireplace.A spacious family room offers a built-in entertainment center framed by the view—a great place to sit and absorb the view while watching TV. The office is situated just behind the family room and enjoys the same great view.This room could be repurposed as a den, library, game room—or add French doors to give it more separation.The front of the house includes a main foyer along with a secondary foyer - tied together through a mud room along the front of the house for easy (and concealed) storage ofshoes, snow gear, etc.

The second floor includes the vaulted master suite with spectacular tree top views over the lake.The spacious master bathroom offers a soaking tub overlooking the lake, a glass walled shower, dual vanity and a big walk in closet.Two more bedrooms and a full bathroom complete the upper level.

The lower level features a bright and very flexible amusement room / family room adjacent to a full wet bar (including dishwasher). This room screams fun! Sliding doors open to a large lower patio and a hot tub awaits at the opposite end of the patio—just outside the 3/4 bathroom / changing room. A fantastic, temperature controlled, wine cellar sits tucked away by the bar.The opposite end of the lower level has the fourth bedroom and another full bath, located near the laundry room.

By the lake, the bunk house includes a great screen porch plus plenty of room for storage.However, it could be dramatically improved to serve as more of a daily use cabana / second kitchen / staging area (no running water) for lakeside activities and boating excursions.


Notes: 5+ garage spaces: main floor 3 car garage (with storage space above), lower 2+ car garage for extra cars, boats, and such; There is a parking area for cars and a separate path from the house down to the lake side for a golf cart or Ranger / Gator type all-terrain vehicle..
