A modernist architectural masterpiece that stirs up instant joie de vivre upon entering.
Incredibly, the feeling never leaves!
Built in 1984 high on 1.5 waterfront acres, the home was lavishly upgraded in 2009, with all-new kitchen and top-of-the line appliances.
As aesthetically thrilling as the airy 5000sf interior is, it's impossible not to live outdoors,
binge-drinking the stunning lake-bluff views (in multiple directions!), oohing over moonrises, sighing over sunsets and those spacious skies running from fiery to pastel. Last night the gorgeous full moon reflected as multiples in many windows. It was spectacular.
The bustling Lake Ozark boat traffic, from yachts and speed boats to excursion craft, is incredibly exciting.
Whether you swim from dawn to
midnight or indulge in dips all day long as refreshing breaks from work, chilling on the vast deck is nothing short of dreamy: You have one of the
largest private pools at the lake, heated for colder weather, and always softly lit at night under glittering stars. It's a thrill to still be swimming during the winter holidays.
Or take the chill off a winter night in the large spa.
Dramatic lake room, with three walls of windows, is a central gathering place, with wood-burning fireplace and spectacular hearth setting.
Dining? The massive main deck can hold 100 guests -- or just your happy family. Switch it up with lunch high on the deck perched off huge chef's kitchen. (A third deck, off master, is perfect for sipping morning coffee while you check email or play chess.)
All decks, including main waterfront deck, enjoy the surround of clear tempered glass ... so your views are never obstructed. The glass is like magic, casting reflections and images all around.
Huge eat-in kitchen, with all quartz countertops, features: two separate dishwashers; two separate sinks; two ovens and large microwave; Jenn-Aire appliances; separate ice-maker; full dining area; glassed-in step-down cove with scenic seating for chats after a long day away; and bar stools at the huge food prep counter (so everyone can help the cook -- or at least keep him entertained). (Oh, and not to forget that tree-shaded dining deck off kitchen if you'd rather be al fresco!)
Just think: This is no vacation; it's your actual life.
Four bedrooms, including master with pocket doors and anteroom, are all en suite (though one actually has its full bath a few steps away). One bedroom has a gas fireplace.
Six baths in all, including four full baths and two half baths.
Splashy jetted tub in huge separate-shower area off master, with dressing space, built-in chest of drawers, two separated sinks, two walk-in closets and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Large, built-in wine coolers in lake-view dining room for aficionados of ... bottles.
Comfy media room in lower level with wet bar makes the perfect home-theatre setting.
Laundry room boasts built-in desk (and ironing board in case you're anti-wrinkle).
Lots of storage and closet space, including two walk-ins.
Two-car attached garage.
Views of fireworks and boating events are unparalleled.
Tons of privacy thanks to the large front yard, woods on either side, the lake as your backyard, and no other houses crowding yours.
Some people love feeling like Ozark Oligarchs. But the main thing is, it's nothing short of ecstasy to wake up in paradise every.single.day.
