There's a sense of history and exceptional character here. You've never seen anything like it. It brought tears to my eyes. It's honest, artisanal, and handmade. Come on in....sit down.....put up your feet....relax. Every single piece of the 126-yr-old maple, every board of the heart pine floors, every reclaimed brick for the porches, every stone in the fireplaces & walls has been studied & ruminated over by its builder. Deep thought, brilliant ingenuity, and serious hard work went into even the slightest detail...all carefully selected to create this masterpiece. For this ''house'' is so much more....the ''word'' to describe it escapes me. It's a rustic lodge, a fine lakeside romantic castle, an artist's blessed sanctuary, a land-lover's heart and soul. It's ''that special place to spend time together, away from your busy lives, and where you'll host & entertain your friends and family for years to come." It strikes the perfect balance. It's history. It's generational. Imagine all your birthdays, holidays, anniversarys, egg hunts, fishing weekends, engagement parties, gender reveals, weddings, after-rehearsal dinners, grandbaby parties, retirement celebrations....all rolled up into one amazing, magical HOME. Life happens here. Lives are lived abundantly here. Surrounded by beauty. Yesterday meets today and grows slowly into tomorrow. About 16 lovely pastoral acres are included. The man-made lake was built in 2003, and has been carefully stocked with copper-nose bream and Auburn tiger bass. There's also catfish & crappie. The spring-fed lake is surrounded by massive boulders and is about 32-feet deep a the dam and about 10-feet deep at the end of the dock. The home's covered decks offer unobstructed 180degree views of this magnificent lake. You're seriously going to need kayaks, canoes, and fishing poles! The HOME, painstakingly constructed in 2015, has about 4250 sqft, 4 big bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 half baths. The main level has 2 super comfy bedrooms, 2 full baths, an ENORMOUS greatroom (living, dining, country kitchen), laundry, another cozy den with stone fireplace, central hallway. Up the ornately carved curving stairway is another den with lakeviews and a guest bedroom. Attached and just out the den door is the "guest suite"-a big 2-bed bedroom with a private half bath. The lower level is all for FUN - a huge open room perfect for happy parties. This lower level features stained concrete floors & a half bath. PLUS, this home has a secret....make sure to get the Agent to tell you all about it! Features: hardi-plank exterior, metal roof. White Whirlpool enamel appliances grace one of the most welcoming country kitchens you'll ever experience. From the old Lanett Alabama textile mill, this home has: reclaimed wide heart pine floors, a "holy floor", maple walls, maple floors, a 3-story iron spiral staircase, iron turnstiles, antique card-room conveyor belt walls, and the GIANT metal fan "that cooled the textile workers for years and years." This one-of-a-kind country estate has hosted Nashville super stars, has been the harbor to many in the storms of life, and has been honored to witness the bringing together of lives in many weddings held here. Now, it's ready to welcome and shelter you and yours.
"When the day breaks and the sunrise glows with hope through the trees here, there's just nothing quite like it." I agree.
