This stately lake front home offers sweeping views of Lake Carroll & is nestled among mature trees for privacy. Situated in the desirable neighborhood of Argyle Heights, this home sits on 2.05 acres. The builder took full advantage of this waterfront setting by featuring windows in every room on the back of the house. A circular drive leads to the formal entrance & allows room for large gatherings with ample parking & entertainment space, both indoors & out. Built with expert craftsmanship in the 1960’s it has been lovingly maintained with recent updates in the kitchen & primary bathroom & fresh paint throughout. The formal living room is enhanced by lovely woodwork & the large mantel frames an elegant fireplace. Double doors lead into the formal dining room featuring a bay window, crown molding & chair rail molding. The luxurious kitchen features walnut cabinetry, transported from family land and was designed & custom built for this kitchen. Featuring new stainless steel appliances & granite counters, everyone will feel right at home around the heart of the home. An informal dining area opens out to the upper level brick balcony. The Primary Bedroom features expansive views of the lake & offers a lovely window seat to enjoy the scenery. The remodeled Primary Bathroom gleams with marble tile in the custom shower & new granite counters. A second bedroom on the east side of the house has an ensuite bathroom & is perfect for welcoming guests. In the center of the home is a cozy family room with beamed ceilings & a warm brick hearth which runs floor to ceiling. Built-in bookshelves are perfect for keeping books & memorabilia on display while an attractive open staircase leads up to the attic, adding interest to the space. Of course it, too, has a large window that looks out over the lake as the designer of this home was keen on taking every advantage of the waterfront vistas. The third & fourth bedrooms are also found on the main level - on the west side of the home - and share a hall bath. Hardwood floors and 10' ceilings throughout the main level add charm to this unique residence. The lower level has great space for an in-law or au pair suite and offers the fifth sunny bedroom with private rear entrance. Bedroom #5 features a lovely brick fireplace and lakeside windows plus more closet space. A full bathroom downstairs has a retro nautical theme and is adjacent to an oversized laundry & utility room. A safe room, or storm shelter, is tucked away on the interior of the basement for safety. The exterior door in the center hall leads out to a spacious brick patio which meanders out to the lake & pool. Two symmetrical brick staircases sweep up either side of the patio & lead back to the main level. The third level attic offers fully finished spaces for studying, painting, gaming, or relaxation. It offers built-in bookcases, bench seating, a cedar closet, exposed brick, & a half bath, PLUS additional closets & an unfinished attic for out-of-the-way storage. This classic home is a “must see!” and is a true gem. Covered parking is at the side of the house, with a brick sidewalk & gentle slope to the back door. Ample parking is available off the circular drive for guests. The in-ground pool is accessed by pathways from the driveway & back patio. A snack bar with covered table space & sprawling deck provide space for sunbathing. An under-deck storage area has room for kayaks & water toys for the lake & pool. Take a walk along the lake front & enjoy the serenity of Lake Carroll. There are only 19 lots on the lake & each home takes pride of place along this tranquil waterfront. Take note of the fine architectural features of this special property -- including the wide chimney, the whimsical cupola, retaining landscape walls leading to the lake, and the extensive brickwork. No detail was overlooked when this house was built and it’s ready for the next chapter.
