This magnificent Maple Island Log Home is nestled atop 7.64 acres of towering hardwood trees and welcomes you with stunning views of Lake Bellaire. An individually handcrafted masterpiece, it offers many custom artful details throughout. Not an ordinary log home, it must be seen to fully appreciate its unique qualities. The home offers a large living room with a masterful natural stone fireplace that rises to the vaulted ceilings. The spacious kitchen is equipped with Frigidaire Gallery appliances, granite counters, painted oak kitchen cabinets, a custom cut tile backsplash, and hand-painted sinks. It also includes a walk-in pantry and adjacent half bath and laundry. Hardwood flooring was used throughout the home. There is a main floor master bedroom, with ensuite bath, complete with tiled shower, claw foot tub, double sinks and heated slate floors. Just outside on the deck, you can relax in the hot tub, brand new in 2018. Upstairs there are two charming guest rooms, each with balcony access, a bath with granite counters, tile floor, linen closet, and double sinks. The spacious loft offers exceptional views of the lake. The youngsters will also enjoy the “secret” room tucked around the corner. The lower level is finished with a family room, a large bunk room that sleeps 8, and a bath featuring an antique vanity and sink, along with a large river rock tiled shower. Two garages are accessed on this level. One is deep enough to store a 19’ boat and golf cart. Other premium features include 2 hot water heaters, forced air and wood-burning furnaces, security system, whole house Bose sound system, wraparound deck, and copper gutters. The home sleeps 16, is moments from Shanty Creek Resort amenities and includes access to the Beach Club on Lake Bellaire. Truly a home for the discerning buyer!
