Craftsman Cottage is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 4 bath home with breathtaking Lake Rabun and mountain views, perfectly sited on a fee simple private lot. The home was transformed by the current owner with a significant high-end renovation both inside and out. The approach is via stone columns and a gate to a gracious parking area with lush landscaping. On the main level, you will find an open area composed of kitchen, dining room, and living room with a wall of windows overlooking Lake Rabun. The kitchen was updated with custom cabinetry and granite countertops. An adjacent beverage center with wine cooler and separate beverage cooler completes the package. Quality materials and workmanship were used throughout the renovation. The private master suite is situated on the terrace level and opens to a covered deck with a gorgeous lake view. Other features include an upstairs bunk room and an additional living area in the lower area. The 4th bathroom is accessible directly from the outside for easy use from the boathouse.

The 2-stall covered boathouse, complete with cabinetry and refrigeration, offers lake living at its best. The stone seawall and walkway wharf provide easy access to a swim dock and stone patio with fireplace. An outdoor entertaining screened gazebo overlooks the professional landscaping and hardscape. The home is accessible entirely via paved roads and is both convenient and very peaceful (perfect for viewing of 4th of July fireworks).
