Homeowners in search for a vacation-like retreat will book a long-term reservation at Waterscape, David Lutes’ coastal-inspired creation that’s designed to rejuvenate and inspire. With three large porches anchoring the left side of the home, the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath residence is certain to turn heads of admirers who are eager to explore its 4,728 square feet. Beautiful stone, shake and siding offer complementary textures, while steel blue shutters accent the front exterior. Inside, a two-story stair tower with a groin vaulted ceiling announces the Waterscape’s attention to detail and craftsmanship. Stonecroft Homes’ signature trim is featured throughout, showcased by 12-foot ceilings that provide a heightened awareness of the unique qualities of this home. With lake views from almost every room in the house, the open floor plan invites relaxation and evokes an appreciation for the surrounding natural beauty. A spacious dining room opens to the great room, providing a fantastic venue for hosting large gatherings with family and friends. Just beyond is an enormous porch that offers an easy transition to get a closer view of the lake. The hearth beckons friends to enjoy the warmth of the great room after dessert. A large, double door coat closet offers homeowners functional and conveniently located storage options.

Like a gracious host, the kitchen offers a welcoming traffic flow around a large island, where hungry family members will no doubt gather to sample what’s for dinner. Beautiful cabinetry and professional grade appliances contribute to the culinary space, which also boasts easy access to a large, walk-in pantry and nearby drop zone, where electronics can be charged and important papers are kept organized. Nearby, a “mom cave” includes a built-in writing desk and plenty of storage for crafts and home office supplies. The back entry hall leads to a three-car garage and a spacious laundry with a sink, folding table and access the exterior. The master suite features three large windows that usher in more views of the lake just beyond. The master bath is a simply gorgeous escape accented with a dome ceiling and oversized, curved, zero entry walk-in shower. His-and-hers vanities and a spacious walk-in closet offer continued function and style.

A quick trip up the beautiful stair tower, and homeowners will enjoy three additional bedrooms, two baths and a loft space. With further focus on generous closet space, Waterscape offers upstairs inhabitants thoughtfully designed areas to begin and end each day. The loft walks out to the enormous upper level porch, where it’s easy to imagine a late Sunday afternoon nap on one of the outdoor beds. Waterscape has been sold, and the new owners will be adding a multi-level backyard entertainment area in the backyard complete with outdoor kitchen, fire pit, hot tub and a pool with an infinity edge. They will also be finishing the basement after the show, adding 2,400 square feet to this already spacious abode. Once again, making the most of the lake views, Waterscape provides yet another welcome escape from everyday pressures.

Efficiently designed with 2 x 6 exterior wall construction, Waterscape offers homeowners a home that will save them money on energy costs. Complete with a premium insulation package and 95 percent efficient HVAC system, it offers the peace of mind of owning a home designed for a forward-thinking emphasis on energy efficiency. The lower level of the home is designed to walk out to the backyard and is ready for homeowners who decide to finish its plentiful spaces in the future.
