This property is a sturdy steel structure with 1200 square feet, 2 bedrooms and 1 bath and metal roof that sits on a .65 ac slice of heaven. Enter the home either from the side porch next the parking pad or from the lakeside, where there is a covered porch that is the full width of the dwelling. Inside, there are high vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and all new energy efficient windows and doors. The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining or sprawling out to enjoy a peaceful getaway.
The kitchen has lots of cabinets, pull-out drawers, and counter space. The island, with butcher block top and slide-in, smooth surface range also serves as a bar. It was new in 2016. The sink and faucet were replaced in 2013. The refrigerator was new in 2018. The window seat in the big room is the perfect spot for curling up with a good book or simply enjoying looking at nature. There is a lovely 3- candle wall unit that converts to a wall fireplace using Real Flame Gel Fireplace fuel, with each canister producing 3000 BTU of heat. The central heating and air conditioning unit was new in 2011 and the compressor was replaced in 2014. Additional insulation was added to the vaulted ceilings throughout. Additionally, Armstrong ceiling planks were used in the master bedroom. These measures were taken to increase energy efficiency and to enhance acoustics.
The house has laminate floors in the main area, tile in the bath, and carpet in the bedrooms. There are ceiling fans in all living and sleeping areas. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower and doubles as the laundry room. The sloping driveway, while a bit bumpy, is designed to carry rainwater away from the dwelling and it does so effectively.

This property has a floating dock and jet ski dock in place. Hawleak Creek runs directly in front of the property; therefore, there is deep water at the end of the dock.
