Simply incomparable. A long blacktop drive winds through nearly 12 acres of forest, past a charming carriage-house style barn and opens to the stunning 4,760 square foot home that's encircled by 633' of all-sports lake frontage. The home takes advantage of the exceptional location on a sweeping point with sunset views over Arbutus Lake. The kitchen overlooks the lake through a high forest canopy and offers ample granite counter space, a Wolf range, butler pantry, and access to an elevated lakeside deck. The open dining area, truly breathtaking great room with fireplace, lakeside sitting room and private home office are also located on the main level. The lakeside master suite features a private lakeside balcony, a free-standing tub and separate shower and a fireplace of its own. Two additional bedrooms are on the same level with a full bath for family or guests. The basement was completely reimagined as a classic Irish pub just a few years ago. Rich walnut woodwork, brass accents and a wood burning fireplace make this a terrific place to unwind after a long day on the water. A fourth bedroom steps out to a lake level patio and has direct access to a separate full bath. Step down the Rosetta stone stairway to a dock at the southern end, or follow a path through the pines to the north end where two additional landing areas are located. The owners have meticulously maintained the lawn and landscape around the home providing wonderful outdoor recreation space along the elevated shoreline. A path through the forest leads east to the 32' x 40' barn and an elevated, irrigated field once utilized as a horse pasture. It's now a thriving orchard and agricultural field to attract the local wildlife. Arbutus Lake harkens thoughts of On Golden Pond with large all-sports areas and quiet, no-wake coves. The lake has gone through a shift in recent years with exceptional homes being built at great expense, driving values north on this once hidden east side gem.
