The only thing that all buyers agree on is that they want water on the property they buy. Lakes are among the most requested water features as they provide year-round enjoyment whether it be swimming and fishing in the summer, hunting ducks in the winter or just enjoying the view every day. Throw a beautiful custom home on top and you've got something special. That's why we are excited to bring Lakehouse Ranch to the market.
Lakehouse Ranch is a 70-acre property located 7 miles southeast of Lindsay, OK, 10 miles from I-35 and 40 miles south of Norman. This property has you at "hello". The approach is marked by an impressive heavy steel entry that immediately leads through the front pasture down to a pipe and cable enclosed yard. Here you find the home and an ideal shop/greenhouse building overlooking a five-acre lake. The 3150 square foot, brick home built in 2012 is a 3 bed, 2 1/2 bath masterpiece constructed by the talented craftsmen who have since become the Land Doctors premier builders. Once inside, the first thing you notice is how the living room, dining room and kitchen are oriented to take advantage of the lake view. Huge windows maximize the view of the lake from these high traffic areas inside the home. A walk-in pantry and a large double door refrigerator freezer combo provide plenty of space for food storage while cabinetry that flanks the large stove provides plenty of room for your cooking utensils, pots, and pans. Add the island storage on either side of the sink and you have convenient access to everything you need to cook a great meal. But not all meals are meant to be cooked inside. The back porch of the home has a wonderful entertainment area large enough for multiple tables. In addition, there is an outdoor bar complete with cold storage and a TV. Lastly, there is plenty of room for a grill and just off the side of the porch is a custom-built brick smoker and a small masonry pizza oven. Can you imagine the fun of cooking on the back porch, hanging out with friends watching football on the TV, all while the kids are down at the lake playing, far enough away that they feel free but close enough you can keep an eye on them? The idea of sitting on the back porch watching the sunset west of the lake while enjoying the peace and tranquility is also an appealing thought.
On those nights that it's too cold to sit outside, you can always enjoy the large fireplace situated between the built in cabinets in the living room. The master bedroom includes a large bath and custom walk-in closet. The two other bedrooms share a bath and half bath is located next to the laundry room just inside the door the leads into the house from the two car garage.
If you are going to have a place in the country, you are always going to want somewhere to keep your toys and work on equipment. The shop building is set up for just that with plenty of space for your mowers, ATV or small tractor. One unusual feature is that the shop has a small built-in greenhouse with temperature controls. This would be an awesome place to spend time starting vegetables for an early spring garden or just hanging out soaking up the sunshine on cold winter days.
In addition to the main five-acre lake, there are two other smaller ponds in the pasture. Although the ranch is mostly open there are about five acres of woods that you could set up a feeder in to attract deer and its pretty normal for ducks and geese to hit the ponds providing a little waterfowl hunting fun. Obviously, fishing is going to be a big activity on the property along with swimming in the summer. We can see where small boats would be a lot of fun as well. Quite frankly, the reason that everyone wants water is that it offers so many possibilities for enjoyment of the property. If you've been looking for a high-quality home on your own private lake, then you really need to call Sean Childress at 580 320 5791 to schedule a showing today.
