It starts with the lake!  Crystal clear, 341 acres and 83 ft. deep, Diamond Lake is a sparkling jewel surrounded by National Forest.  This beautiful retreat overlooks 250 ft. of exceptional, sand-bottom frontage and focuses on sweeping SW-facing views of Diamond Lake.  So clean and so clear, Diamond Lake makes for outstanding swimming, fishing, kayaking and canoeing.  The lake has an active lake-owner’s association with an excellent website that you can find at www.diamond-lakers.org.

The home’s wooded setting encompasses almost 3 acres and includes common ownership of an adjoining 23 wooded acres with four other landowners along, private Chapinwood Rd.  Bordered and buffered by National Forest, protective covenants for non-motorized recreation run with the shared acreage.  The green space adds more privacy and recreational opportunities to this gorgeous lake home’s setting.  See Survey Here.

Nothing beats a classic . . . and this exclusive retreat is no exception.

Following a classic Adirondack-style design interpreted from historic photographs, this 10 year old lake home is in pristine condition and incorporates the advantages of stick-built construction with premium half-log siding for a full log look.  Stone foundation accents, custom Marvin windows and doors, a large screen porch with floor to ceiling views, a covered porch entry and natural stone walkways enhance the exterior of this fabulous, 2,000 sq. ft. home.

With 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, the home’s well-thought-out, single level floor plan makes for easy living at the lake!  The centerpiece of the home is the grand living room with its full masonry, natural stone fireplace framed on each side with built-in bookcases and storage.  There’s also a handsome line of windows with incredible lake views.  The room is bathed in natural light that streams down from an upper row of classic, clerestory windows.

Off the living room, you’ll find a study, a quiet sanctuary for reading and writing.  The study has floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves, a built-in desk and a window to the lake.

The crafted, wooden built-ins, like the gathering area around the hearth, create cozy fine points where the home’s architecture and structure mingle with comfortable furnishings.  This home’s high-end finishes have been made with an artist’s eye for detail, and it is decorated with earth tones and warm woods that complement the blue of the lake and green of the pines.

Other special features of the home include hardwood floors in the main living areas, carpet in the bedrooms and tile in the baths; a large wood counter with seating adjacent to the kitchen; granite kitchen counter tops; stainless appliances; Corian countertops in the baths; a partial, unfinished, poured basement with mechanicals that include a high efficiency furnace, humidifier, water softener and utility tub; WiFi; a “Pier Pleasure” dock with a kayak rack: and a 2-car detached garage with attic storage designed with future loft living space in mind.  View Garage Expansion Plans Here.  Most furnishings are negotiable.
