Luxury Property: Luxury at the lake

Special to the Daily

The small community of Water Dance in Frisco is located just south of the downtown core and enjoys a sunny spot close to Lake Dillon. Today’s featured residence enjoys all that the neighborhood has to offer from its site at 549 Water Dance Drive. The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home is offered at $1,475,000. Set well back from the quiet street, the home is framed with a mountain backdrop on one side and a short stroll to the lake to the other direction.

The entry opens into the Great room with beautiful mountain details which include a flagstone reception, wide planked hickory flooring, and tongue and groove wood ceilings. Substantial peeled beams punctuate the cathedral ceilings and speak to the mountain feel of the home. A stone fireplace is the most prominent feature, warming the space. A wall of windows brings the mountain views inside. Doors here lead out to a flagstone patio which soaks up the southwestern sun. To the left, the dining area has an antler chandelier and a site close to the open kitchen.

The kitchen has knotty alder cabinets and an island done in a contrasting stain. The double sink enjoys a spot under a big sunny window for natural light. Appliances include a Thermador four burner range with grill, a bank of wall ovens which includes a Sharp microwave and Kitchen Aid oven, Bosch dishwasher and Sub Zero refrigerator with freezer drawers. A prep sink creates a second work space and the island features extra seating. Nearby, a walk in pantry adds storage.

Past the kitchen, the mudroom has cubbies for mountain paraphernalia, and the laundry has Kitchen Aid washer and dryer, a utility sink, and a location close to the two-car garage.

To the right of the Great room is an office/den which could also add sleeping space. Next is the master bedroom with a river rock fireplace assuming center stage. The ensuite bath boasts a jetted tub and double headed shower. Cabinets are distressed wood and there are split sinks. A walk in closet completes the suite.

The powder room on the main living level speaks to the attention to detail throughout the home, with a pedestal sink surrounded by inlaid wood floor detail.

The carpeted stairs lead up to a loft sitting area – the perfect spot for a quiet book. A spacious bedroom lies to the left. This one has been fitted as a bunkroom, adding plenty of sleeping space. A nearby tiled bath serves this area. Another bedroom shares a Jack and Jill bath.

Beautifully landscaped, the residence is equally at home in the warmer months with a stream running behind and a bench for quiet reveries. Peeled beam pickets on the stairways, custom drapes, and a central vacuum system all speak to the level of thought that went into planning the home. With a central location and the amenities of Frisco, this lovely home is the perfect spot for your mountain adventures in every season.
