The Main House
Rustic American style blends with modern convenience in the architecture of this 3,551 sf. custom-built Stonemill Log Home. The master suite has been situated on the main floor, with easy access to a state-of-the-art kitchen, dining room, enclosed porches, private bath and laundry, guest bathroom. The 2nd floor has 2 guest bedrooms, private living space with a study, soaring windows overlooking the great room below and magnificent outdoor vistas.
Using the land's elevation to its greatest advantage, the below-ground level called the Man Cave by the owner, boasts a full living space, private offices, a wing-ding of a storage safe, pantry storage, easy access to the home's mechanicals and full ground floor access to the great outdoors.
This 2-story home is built into the landscape with unobstructed views of the 1,173 linear feet of Long Lake shoreline. The fully stocked Bill Dance Signature Lake can be seen from both the screened or open wrap-around porches surrounding the residence. Perfect for entertaining, the home boasts an open floor plan and features a custom stone and Lexington Forge fireplace in the 1st floor living area. Not to be missed is the stone & rustic wood-burning stove in the ground-level living space, where French doors open out to winding lighted walkways down to the lakefront deck and floating boat dock. A fire pit near the water's edge will warm an evening's gathering as the moonlight spills over Long Lake.
Connected to the home's main front porch is a system of custom designed covered walkways leading to a 1,500 sq. ft. garage outfitted with its own woodstove, state of the art workshop with custom workbench. A 1,500 sq. ft. private guest apartment is ready to be decorated.
The Barn was intended to store both an RV and the many "tools and toys" which come with the enjoyment of true country-living. Designed using re-purposed logs to enhance its historic feel; it is classic mountain architecture at its best.
