An extraordinary opportunity to own one of the most beautiful pieces of lakefront in East Texas with stunning water views over Lake Palestine. Situated on over 7 acres, this premier property offers a beautiful home, a barn and a boathouse. Arrive at the home from a quiet, tree lined road and be greeted by a beautiful custom iron, security gate flanked by oversized lanterns providing a low, warm glow. As you enter, your blood pressure drops a notch and the sounds of water and nature take over; birds, wildlife, leaves rustling, the smell of the pines and the water gracing the shoreline. The home offers ample parking with a garage and a porte-cochère and a large drive. Enter the home through the solid wood front doors, and immediately look up to see the stunning views of the lake through the wall of windows on the back of the home. The main house features a large gathering space with two built-in dining areas. The home is intentionally built for lake life, a more casual affair. The tall ceilings allow for tall windows and ample natural light with panoramic views. The home features two sections; the main house and the attached "cabin" as the lake goers refer to it as. The main house has two bedrooms including the well appointed master suite with pop out with 3 walls of windows; a wonderful retreat for a peaceful book. Then just down the hall, the "cabin" features a great room with ample sleep space, a full kitchen and bathroom, and a private bedroom. Above the cabin, there is unfinished attic space already plumbed, laid out and ready for someone to add more guest space.
There is nothing quite like life at the lake. A holiday wreath adorns a window into the summer months as a mama bird made its nest in the wreath and is teaching her babies to fly. One can hear a soft hum from the buzzing bees around the jasmine on the back of the home and a seaplane lands on the water and everyone cheers.
The barn is large and well built; sunset photo worthy and a wonderful place to raise chickens or store equipment. The boathouse features four slips with two covered and two garaged. Ample storage space allows for lifejackets, tubes, fishing poles and all the lake goods to be stored nearby.
This home is meant for quiet evenings with family and friends, but also an entertainers delight. It would make an amazing corporate retreat, an escape from city life or even a retirement dream. Throughout Texas, there is nothing quite like Avista on Lake Palestine.
