There is also a convenient residential structure, ideal as your temporary hubwhile you build the home of your dream. In addition to this first-class lifestyle, a private paved road right by the shore beckons you to all kinds of activities; from events and celebrations alongside the silver moon floating over the lake, to an intimate, romantic, barefoot fte pour deux; from extreme and aquatic sports to a family pontoon tour by the shore or a quiet and serene fishing day to recharge your spirits. In the words of one of the seller's nearby neighbors: Each morning, we look forward to early sunrises, as the bright sun stretches across the still lake and glistens her light. In complete silence, she stuns us with her beauty. The wind whispers through the trees as the birds sing their morning songs. Words cannot capture the experience of such beauty and awe. The sunsets are eloquent as the sun dips down over the horizon. The colors mesmerize as they say good night. The full moons are breathtaking. Finally, in my own words,this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live in paradise. By the way, horses are permitted.
