Sold – Lahontan Realty Home 53
This Lahontan home has a way of confusing you in a beautiful, brilliant, deceptive kind of way. Pull up a seat on the back deck or gaze out from the closest window and you’d swear you were under your own 40 acres of Montana sky. The vastness around this 5-bed, 6.5-bath home, framed by Gooseneck Lake to one side, and the pond on the 3rd hole out your back patio, creates a rare feeling of spaciousness. It’s a sensation that carries over to the home itself, with a striking, granite fireplace at the heart of its living space. Beneath a boldly timbered ceiling is a great room that faces the 3rd fairway behind, the mountains and forest beyond, and – a short walk away beside that fairway – Camp Lahontan with its pools, tennis courts, bocce, volleyball, pickleball and summer camps and concerts. The nearby kitchen, breakfast nook, and dining room share these views as well. Stage left of the fireplace is the master wing with an office area, additional bedroom, and a master with a private deck that serves up sweeping views of nature’s handiwork. Right of this 6,175-square-foot home’s hearth is a staircase that works its way up to four bedrooms, a place where you’ll find an abundance of morning light, occasional pillow fights, and frequent bedtime tales. This floor is tied together by a walkway that overlooks the great room and that leads to another staircase further down the hall. Meantime, on the sprawling veranda below, someone’s enjoying a quiet morning with coffee in hand and visions of the big sky beyond.
