Stepping through the double, full-glass front doors into the main floor of the house, you are greeted with your first views of Western Lake... The expansive living room features multiple sitting areas, cypress ceilings with exposed beams, a gas fireplace, and custom milled wide-plank heart pine floors, creating a warm and inviting space to relax.

Two Subzero refrigerators are complimented with double Viking dishwashers, a Viking gas stove with double ovens, a full-sized wine fridge, and a built-in ice maker. Stainless steel countertops sit atop hand crafted black walnut cabinets and on the oversized central island. The primary suite is located on the main floor and houses an office, sitting area with a gas fireplace, a large walk-in closet complete with a washer and dryer, and a private balcony overlooking the lake. The high ceilings feature Brazilian Ipe hardwood and exposed beams. The primary bath is complete with double vanities, Logos Azul Limestone countertops, a walk-in shower with custom tile work, and an incredible outdoor shower for two. Two additional bedrooms with en suite baths make up the remainder of the main floor and a private guest suite encompasses the entirety of the 3rd floor.
