There is a lakefront home for sale in Sapphire that offers more surprises than you can imagine. Put aside the fact that it fronts quiet Hogback Lake. Put aside the bonus that the house comes with a boat to enjoy on the lake. Come along with me to see just a few of the many surprises I found as I explored this lovely home.
The stone pathway that leads to the inviting front door, if you choose not to enter at this moment, leads through amazing lush gardens. You will find yourself wondering if you even want to leave them to go inside, especially on a day as lovely as this. You are thinking about the steps down to the lake…it may be October, but it is unseasonably warm…how would it feel to dip your toes in the water?
Back to reality, and we realize there is yet a house to be toured. An inviting entryway is just the beginning. The great room with its soaring ceilings features a stone faced floor to ceiling fireplace. The updated kitchen featured a commercial style gas range. (For those of you who have read documentation of my explorations before, you are well aware that this is the moment for me, the moment I want to start searching for spices, the moment I want to put my culinary talents to task. A deep breath, though, puts me back on track.) One cannot help noting the wonderful deck through the wall of windows and doors that looks out over the lake. It is too soon at this point to realize that this marvelous view is accessible from almost every room in this house.
The main level also contains two guest rooms and full bath with heated floors. The attached double garage is accessible through the kitchen. Off the garage is an artist’s studio with cedar walls and ceiling and a cork floor. No real need for an artist’s studio. Just think of all the possibilities for this room.
The next decision is whether to go upstairs or down. Flip a coin, and up we go. Another guest room and full bath are here. Again we find that view. I realize as I look out that I haven’t seen the master suite. The lower level awaits its turn. I have to admit I was not prepared. The master suite encompasses the entire lower level. There is another fireplace here in the spacious sitting area that has access to yet another deck overlooking the lake, this one with a stainless steel hot tub. The master bath has a custom tiled shower, dual vessel sinks and a dry sauna.
There are just too many extras to talk about here. You really must see this to believe it. Call the Carolina Cone Team today for a private tour of this gem. Until next we meet…
