Boasting stellar views and direct access to Santa Fe Lake, this house affords you the convenience of docking your boat or fishing off the private dock onsite, as well as launching your boat from the public ramps only minutes away! Finished with new hardwood floors, the interior of the home invites you to enjoy the open floor plan and wander into the large living space. Relax on the leather L-shaped couch in front of the flat-screen Smart TV while the gas fireplace warms the room. Around the corner lies the updated, fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Cook up the catch of the day on the outdoor gas grill to serve at the dining table with a combination of bench seating and Tolix style chairs. After a day of kayaking or boating on the lake, challenge a loved one to a game of pool in the sunroom. Opt to wind down outside in the backyard as you listen to the cool breeze rustling through the cypress trees. With 5 spacious bedrooms, there's a variety of sleeping arrangements to ensure your group of 6 sleeps in comfort. Located on the main level, the master bedroom features a king-sized bed and an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. -- THE LOCATION -- Nestled alongside Santa Fe Lake, this home serves as a peaceful retreat away from the bustling city. Put on your adventure hat and explore the lake using one of the 5 provided kayaks - 3 adult size and 2 youth size. If you brought your own watercraft, the boat launch is located nearby for easy storage. Spend afternoons fishing for sunshine bass before lounging under the sun at the beach. Cruise halfway around the lake to reach historic downtown Melrose just 10 minutes away. Enjoy live music from the local band at Gator Bait or indulge in a fresh seafood buffet at Blue Water Bay.
