Your multi-generational lakefront home awaits down a long private drive! Welcome to direct waterfront living on the south end of gorgeous Gardner Lake! This custom built home sits on over 2 acres of private land and over 200 feet of shoreline! Spot eagles and ducks from your screened in porch. Enjoy your morning coffee while watching the sun rise or evening beverages watching the sun set. Host picnics and get togethers on your large patio, so much entertaining space! Inside, wake up in your 1st floor primary bedroom suite to views. Sit by your gas fireplace in your large living room on cool winter nights watching skaters and ice fisherman in the winter months! Upstairs you’ll find two HUGE bedrooms, a spacious full bath and plenty of storage areas. The sitting room would make a fantastic home office (if you’re not too distracted by the gorgeous views).

This additional residence has its own private entrances and 1- car garage. There’s a HUGE basement for both spaces which could possibly be finished for additional living/entertaining/play space!
