This 3-story 'Mountain Traditional' home with an arts and craft flair was custom-designed by the owner/architect for spacious, enjoyable living and entertaining. The home is situated on a gently sloping 1.28 acres that is heavily wooded for privacy; yet has landscaped space from the home down to a private dock on Cold Springs Lake. The home is functionally laid out with an open floor plan and high ceilings for the gathering areas and generous-sized rooms for private spaces. The interior features oak hardwood flooring throughout and ceiling fans in most rooms. The first level is bathed in sunlight and embraces an open Living / Dining / Kitchen with stained wood cabinetry and drawers galore, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, two storage pantries for food and china, an adjacent large laundry room, and 1/2 bath. The first level also accesses a large screened porch for comfortable outdoor living. The second level opens to a wood-walled great room with cathedral ceiling that epitomizes a place to entertain and relax, has a large floor-to-ceiling stone wood-burning fireplace, a side parlor area for games, reading and conversation, and opens onto a second-level covered porch with a stone fireplace and beautiful view of the lake. The second level also has two generous-sized bedrooms (one en suite), 2 full baths, and 1 half bath. The third level is perfect for guests with another 2 bedrooms (one an en suite) and 2 full baths. The en suites on both levels have large walk-in closets and jetted tubs and showers. So imagine the possibilities...enjoying the indoor and outdoor living spaces that invite reading, a toasty fire in the fireplace, intimate dinners, and entertaining best friends. Imagine enjoying a cocktail on the porches overlooking the lake or sliding a canoe off your dock to paddle or fish the stocked and serene Cold Springs Lake.
