Special to Summit Homes and Properties

Luxury Properties.

BY BONNIE SMITH ALLENSet on a beautiful lot which looks at Dillon Reservoir, the home at 520 Wooden Canoe is the “poster child” for the beautiful community at Water Dance in Frisco. This lovely four bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home is offered at $1,600,000 which yields a price per square foot of $359 for the 4,448 square feet. Additionally, there is a two-car garage, a beautifully wooded lot and a legal apartment included in the price.

A flagstone path leads to a welcoming covered entrance and then directly into the slate entry. To the right is a coat closet, while to the left is an office which could also be an additional bedroom. There is a full bath here with neutral tile and pewter hardware. The style of the home immediately becomes apparent with 8-foot doors and wrapped drywall in European style.The great room is directly ahead with beautiful details which include peeled beam detail, bullnose corners and bolted beams. One whole wall is glass, including French doors which lead onto the sweeping deck with beautiful reservoir views. The carpeted living area is centered by a moss rock fireplace with raised hearth.

To the right, the kitchen boasts wood flooring, tiled countertops and beautiful custom cabinetry. Appliances include a five-burner Bosch cooktop in the island, a Bosch dishwasher and wall oven, and a GE Monogram refrigerator and microwave/convection oven. The Kohler prep sink provides additional workspace. The dining area completes the living space with big sunny windows and more lake vistas.

Just past the kitchen are a powder room and then a laundry with built-in ironing board, pantry and additional refrigerator. Steps down lead to the garage. The stairway up leads to a private apartment. A tiled full kitchen is here, along with a bedroom, full bath and living area.To the left of the great room is the master suite which has big sunny windows, a built-in window seat and a two-sided slated fireplace with pass-through to the master bath. The jetted tub, double Kohler sinks and separate shower are trimmed in travertine with polished nickel faucets. A walk-in closet completes the suite.

Stairs down lead to a fabulous family room with two sets of doors leading out to the yard and through the trees out to the reservoir. The rich, red walls warm the space and a media center controls one wall. There is plenty of room for seating as well as for a game table area. There is also an additional room on this level which could be a dedicated theater or wine cellar. There is a full tiled bath to the left which serves this area. Beyond this is a spacious bedroom with a full ensuite bath, double closets and doors out to the patio level. To the right is another bedroom, again with doors out to the grounds and views of the Frisco Marina.The lovely community of Water Dance features a central Summit County location with only a short walk to downtown Frisco or to the Frisco Marina and access to bike trails and cross country skiing. With careful attention to details, a perfect floorplan and a truly beautiful setting, this is a home for generations to come.
