The Lost Lighthouse Ranch, as the current owners have named it, is the perfect melding of luxury, peace and 130 fabulous acres of nature. It begins on the approach down the wooded half mile long drive and opens up to fields of horses, wildflowers, native grasses, etc. to the main cedar shake residence which blends perfectly with the landscape. You will be taken aback by the natural beauty of the property the moment you arrive. The stress and worry will literally melt away. The landscape beds are filled with flowers to adorn your every room as well as edible landscape and raised bed gardens filled with blueberries, lettuces, beans, tomatoes and more. There is even a small orchard of pear, peach and apple trees. Additionally, there is a massive tree canopy of 70+ acres of hardwoods and other varieties that have remained untouched since 2008. The front walk and porch are made from stone found on the property. Upon entering through the front door you will be captivated by the wall of windows and the stunning views beyond. The more than 16 acre lake is your primary view while the long range view to the farthest vista is a measured 27 miles away! Not to be underestimated however, are the details and fine finishes of this luxury property. The foyer is flanked by a formal dining room and home office/library with custom built ins and 10 ft ceilings. The massive gourmet kitchen and den showcase the wall of windows amid the many features they provide themselves. The European styled kitchen has high end appliances such as a six burner Blue Star RNB36 stove with oven/convection, GE Cafe Dishwasher and refrigerator. Granite countertops. custom cabinetry, artistic backsplash fashioned of wine corks, sea shells and open shelving finish the look and feel of this amazing culinary haven. The king-sized, well appointed pantry is an added bonus. The den has a cozy wood burning fireplace with stone facade and hearth as well as a shaker style wood mantle. Picture this…beach house meets luxury recreation estate and you will have an idea of what this feels like. There are three spacious bedrooms, one with en suite bath and the other two with shared bath, and laundry in one wing of the house. The other side has a formal living room with vaulted ceilings and a gas fireplace and the primary suite. The massive primary suite is a story all of its own with a three sided fireplace, two walk in closets, a trap door to a storm cellar and a spa like bath that you wont believe! There are separate vanities, a large soaker tub, sauna, heated towel rack and a huge walk in shower with multiple shower heads and crafted of imported rectified Italian porcelain. The guest/craft house is inviting with a cozy front porch to welcome you inside. Currently used as a craft house and home to a natural products production area. this space has a sleeping loft and full bath so could easily be used as a separate living area or commercial kitchen, workshop, etc. There is an attached greenhouse and 400 AMP electrical service too. The 3 fenced pastures have great grazing grasses, auto-waterers, border and cross fencing. A 5 stall barn with tack/feed room has hay racks and fans in each stall and is conveniently located near the main house and horse pastures. There is another large horse barn in the back acreage of the property that has plenty of room for an arena and training area. Nearby, there is a fancy chicken coop to keep your hens happy and producing. There are approximately 5 miles of riding/hiking trails. There is an equipment barn and storage barn. The highlight however is the 16 plus acre lake! Fifty-five feet deep at the deepest point it is brimming with bass, bluegill, catfish, sunfish and more. A stainless steel and trex decking maintenance free covered dock and boat slip is the perfect spot to enjoy the sights and sounds of the lake. Solar powered cafe lights take the enjoyment from day into night. The wildlife on this property which is just a mile from the Trophy Whitetail Trail include deer, fox, coyote, bobcats, rabbits, squirrels, quail, pheasant, doves, hawks, owls, eagles, many varieties of birds to name just a sampling. This could be a true hunters paradise, organic farm, family recreation, vineyard, corporate retreat or primary residence. Just 20 minutes to a private airport or hospital. Underground utilities, geothermal heat/air, 400 AMP electric service and awesome water pressure. This property is truly a treasure.
