The main floor consists of an open concept floor plan. This floor has a private office with French doors that open onto a deck overlooking the lake, and a private half bathroom off the office also opening onto the large main deck. Hardwood floors are throughout the main level with carpet in the bedrooms and tile floors in the bathrooms.

Open space includes entry foyer, kitchen, great room, wet bar and dining area. French doors open from each room on the main floor onto the large deck with a spectacular lake view.

From the decks, the walkway to the lake is visible. Lighted wood stringers follow the natural fall of the land to the lake. A covered dock at the end of walkway consists of two 6,000 lb. electric hoists, lighting, utility shed and fishing stations. The dock is located on one of the main river bends where the water is 8' to 9' deep.

The master suite features French doors, lake view and private screened porch. The master bath has travertine flooring, his and hers vanities, separate glass shower, jetted spa, and an oversized master closet off the bath. The master bedroom is carpeted and furnished.

The second bedroom on the main floor is private with carpet and a tiled full bath and closet. The utility room with Maytag appliances is off the hall way to this bedroom.

The lower floor suite (basement) features a large open room with cypress walls, stone fireplace and tiled floors. It has two full bedrooms, one full bath, one half-bath, a large bar, and entertainment center with big screen TV. The mantel over the fireplace and kitchen cabinets are made of hickory, and was chosen for its unique characteristics. This floor has a full kitchen, gas appliances and individual heating and cooling system with dehumidifier. Two French doors lead off the open area to a (47'X 13.5') screened porch with a 4-person Jacuzzi.

Off the big screened porch is an open area which is partially covered, a bricked-in shower with obscure glass door. A 235 sq. ft. exercise/storage room is located behind the porch and equipped with a zone system off the main HAVAC unit installed in 2022. The lake view is clear from all areas.

Lake Seminole is known for good duck hunting including species of wood duck, ring neck, red heads, gadwall, canvasback, teal, blue bill, buffleheads and widgeon. Over two dozen pair of bald eagles call Lake Seminole home.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of property that has it all and is in excellent shape. Built in 2005, it has never been occupied full-time, but rather served as an escape for the current landowner. A new well was installed in 2016 and the home is fully furnished.

The location is excellent; 30 minutes from Tallahassee Florida, 18 minutes from Bainbridge, Ga., 90 minutes from Panama City Beach FL., 90 minutes from Dothan Al., and 60 minutes from Indian Pass for great salt water fishing. Furnishings can be purchased excluding game mounts.
