The Triangle House
FIRST FLOOR: Enter from the drive to a combined Living, Dining, and Kitchen space featuring a wall of windows with beautiful lake views, wood stove, and table that comfortably seats five (can be expanded to seat more for entertaining). Although the Kitchen's prep area is a little small, like a ship's galley, economy of space and great organization create a functional space for any chef. At the other end of the Living Area, a hallway leads past a Full Bath with shower stall to the Primary Bedroom, featuring a Queen Bed and access to a small furnished deck, perfect for a quiet morning coffee or dining for two.
SECOND FLOOR: Stairs lead to a landing with Study and Single Bed that can serve as a third Bedroom in a pinch. Pocket door opens to a proper second Bedroom with Single Bed and spectacular elevated views of the lake and Beech and Western Mountains. Door to extended deck with furnishings, and, of course, fabulous views. A small en suite Half Bath can also be found in this bedroom.
LOWER LEVEL: From the Living Area, a spiral staircase leads to a lower level where Laundry, a second Half Bath, and utility area can be found, along with access to a third outdoor sitting area under cover and path leading to the lake.
OUTDOOR SPACES: Surrounded by mature woods with combined hardwoods, evergreens, ferns, and natural landscaping, this house happily doesn't include a manicured lawn, but the woods and shoreline provide a nice place to explore for young and old. Short wooded path leads to a rocky shore with dock and float. Canoe and kayak available for tenant use.
PLEASE NOTE: With its elevated decks, circular staircase, unprotected and easily accessible shoreline, and bedrooms separated from the primary bedroom by one floor, this home is not at all suitable for very young children. No TV, but great Internet! Bring your laptop along with your Netflix and Amazon Prime passwords!
