Looking for a large four-bedroom, four-bath lakefront home with a lot of old southern charm. This Lakeview Drive home might be just what you are looking for with 3,651 living square feet under air with a total under roof of 4,930 square feet.
You can swim and lounge on your own backyard beach with 90 feet of white sandy beachfront with a huge 50-foot floating dock and a large boat house. The backyard has lush tropical landscaping including a brick walkway to the dock between two mature Florida palm trees. The back yard also has several seating areas and a fountain seating area. This custom lake home has everything you would want and more, including a sunset view across Lake Jackson’s 3,400-plus acres of clear blue waters.
As you walk into the house you are completely blown away, just what you expect of a classic home custom-built in 1954. A clear open view to the water from the moment you walk in. A stunning reflection of the lake off the shiny, original, well-polished, mint condition, hardwood floors. Every wall, every ceiling is uniquely different in style and treatments not found in newer homes and difficult to replicate. The 14-by-17-foot family room features a real wood burning fireplace and leads directly into the main 18-by-20-foot living room, all on one level, no steps, with a magnificent 20-foot high ceiling, dramatic spiral staircase and a masterpiece Roman ceiling design painted with a colorful blue sky world design. Huge glass storm doors face the lake and there is a clear view of the lake.
There are two exceptionally large master bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. The 20-by-21-foot downstairs master can be a master bedroom or a fantastic mother-in-law suite, or maybe even a man cave, with its own dining area, office area, full bath with walk-in shower, plus a laundry room. Upstairs is the second large 24-by-17-foot master suite and large walk-in bath with walk-in closet. The bed faces a large picture window overlooking the lake for great sunset views. The upstairs also features a 10-by-25-foot reading room overlooking the wrought-iron balcony 20 feet above to the living room.
Downstairs has two large guest bedrooms: the front room is 13-by-10-foot and the middle room is 12-by-14-foot. Each with unique window treatment and wall treatments. There are two other large guest bathrooms, one 11-by-14-foot features its own under counter mini-fridge, two custom vanities, two sinks, a claw tub and tall beach house style vaulted ceilings and two doors, one going into the house and one to the screened outside 60-foot patio deck which has a screen door to the outside walkway to the dock and seating areas.
In the center of the house is the 17-by-18-foot kitchen, all updated with granite tops, granite island with custom cooktop built in and an eat-in breakfast table. Just a step down from the eat-in kitchen is the formal 18-by-11-foot waterfront dining room with glass doors that open to the screen porch.
The huge 10-by-60-foot screened colonial style screened porch with 12-foot high ceilings and one-of-a-kind on one end of the porch is a six-person hot tub in excellent condition.
The back yard has lots of seating areas ... one features a fountain for a royal touch. There is a white sandy beach, a boat dock with a 50-foot floating platform dock, and the boat house has a catwalk with tie ups. The beach also features a working stop light, flashes red, yellow and green to your desire.
This home is move-in ready and has been maintained with immaculate care, updated and remodeled over the years to make it one of the most unique interiors you will find anywhere.
