Lakefront living at its best awaits you. This private, updated residence is nestled on a serene and tranquil cove on Tellico Lake in the gated Culverts Cove Community. Providing the privacy of cove living with the convenience of main channel lake access, this location is unmatched in terms of ease of access and peace and quiet, and no homes in the neighborhood have sold in this decade, suggesting residents recognize the value of their homes. The location is only the tip of the iceberg, as this home has been lovingly updated by the current owners to showcase the beauty of the home and bring the lake and surrounding nature into their home. The floor to ceiling windows in the living area brighten the room and allow a transition that leaves you feeling as if you are completely surrounded by nature, with no neighbors in view. Take a step into the chef and entertainer's kitchen, lovingly updated with new appliances, a gas range, two ovens (one gas and one electric), massive island, and cabinets and storage galore. Not only that, but a well-crafted pantry has been added for extra storage to create all the favorite dishes. The larger laundry room off the kitchen allows easy access on the main level for household chores as well as extra space for storing essentials. Take the stairs with recently installed hardwood floors or the newly installed elevator up to the primary suite, complete with office space, sitting room, huge walk-in closet, bath with step-in shower, double vanities, and soaking tub, along with private deck access. This is a suite fit for royalty. Head downstairs to the fully finished bottom level to find the bar room, which includes a full bar setup with sink and refrigerator carefully crafted from the wood of the owners' old boat dock and large, full windows showing the majesty of the lake year-round. After mixing a drink, step onto the screened porch to enjoy the comforts of the lake. Take a walk down the hall and see how the current owners have transformed downstairs into a haven for their grandchildren. A large hall closet has been turned into a bunkroom for guests, and a bedroom closet has been transformed into an almost magical reading nook and nap spot along with underbed storage. No detail has been overlooked during their transition. Even storage under the stairwell has been turned into a kid's paradise, complete with table, chairs, and television. As if all of the updated interior is not enough, step into the garage to find a heated and cooled space for all types of projects and storage for everything you can imagine. With additional storage in the loft, there is room for even more that remains out of the way to park cars, boats, or other toys on the main level. That's not all. Access to the loft is by a well-built staircase that can be raised and lowered at the press of a button, keeping the garage clean and clear. Step outside and see the dry storage attached at the side of the house, three porches with new Trex decking for each level, and the recently poured concrete drive for a utility vehicle that extends from the rear of the house all the way down to the new floating dock. This is one of the few floating docks in the neighborhood, meaning new owners would have year-round water access along with covered boatlift, jet ski port, sink, refrigerator, and equipment shed for all your paddleboards, tubes, and skis. Don't overlook the roof of the house, which at first glance might not be as noticeable as it is each month when utility bills come due. With over fifty solar panels installed less than six years ago, utilities bills average out at a net zero cost for the owners, as they can produce enough energy to offset their energy costs from the utility company. These low hassle, low maintenance panels give huge upside to new buyers, as the cost of electricity does not need to be factored into expenses of purchasing this house, and they are at the beginning of their expected lifespan, with many years of energy production ahead for new owners. This is the opportunity of a lifetime! Don't let this one pass you by. Schedule your private showing today by calling 877.445.3732.
