“This home is perfect for comfortable family living or for entertaining large groups,” said Diemer. “It’s stunning interior, huge covered travertine verandah and patio with firepit, and nearby lake, offers the ideal setting for recreation and family gatherings where memories will be made.”
As you arrive at this gorgeous European-inspired home, you’ll notice its well-manicured landscaping and park-like setting. The incredible workmanship and fine features of this home begin with the majestic double wooden front doors, with wrought-iron detailing over its glass panels.

Through wide arched doorways, you’ll see enticing views of the dining and living rooms. The living room, with its coffered ceiling and crystal chandelier is the perfect place to serve drinks before dinner. Your family celebrations and dinner parties will be remembered in the spacious dining room with custom painted tray ceiling under the twinkle of another crystal chandelier.

The family room, with gas fireplace, is open to both the informal dining area and kitchen, creating an ideal gathering spot where family members can cook together, relax, talk, or watch the game.
