Enjoy the best seat on the lake for the Fourth of July fireworks and so much more. Located on beautiful Lake Rabun in the northeast Georgia mountains, this three-bedroom, three and a half-bath lake cottage enjoys not only an excellent panoramic view of the mountains and lake but all the amenities you'll need for a fabulous weekend—or entire summer—on the lake.
Enter the home and you'll immediately feel welcomed in the living room's warm wooden interior, which features hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, and a stretch of French doors that bring the lake and mountains inside. Step from the living room to the kitchen to admire its granite countertops, extensive custom cabinetry by local artisan Dwayne Thompson, and an adjoining pantry and laundry room. Sliding glass doors in the kitchen open onto a large wooden deck which is seemingly floating in the tree tops for yet another spectacular place to relax and enjoy the lake's quiet beauty.
Both the living room and the dining area open onto a spacious, airy screened porch, which offers lots of extra family space amid a commanding view of the lake and Sweater Girl Mountain. An indoor, spiral staircase on the porch brings you down to a second screened porch, a sitting area, and a bedroom and bath where privacy abounds. At night, retire to the home's huge master suite with its sunken sitting area nestled beside a stone fireplace and its large master bath with a jetted tub and an additional shower. A sewing room or home office and a cozy den with its own private deck are also included on the main floor.
The upstairs boasts an extra large foyer and two more bedrooms and a bath. The home is not the only feature you'll enjoy on this unique property, with its extensive lakefront footage. Down by the water, relax on top of the two-story, two-stall boathouse which is partially roofed for welcomed summer shade, or take a refreshing plunge into the cool, deep waters of Lake Rabun from the swim dock. The home and boathouse are located on a fee-simple lot and owner financing is available.
