    Agent's Comments

    Masterful design and modern luxury are uniquely embodied in this 8 bedroom Adirondack-style lodge located on the shores of Deep Creek Lake. This one-of-a-kind home, designed by architect Darrin Peterson, is impressive from the moment you approach the driveway. Offering unobstructed lake views from almost every room and a level, grassy lawn, it is the ultimate in lake front living.

    Every detail was carefully selected and quality crafted to seamlessly blend form and function with exceptional results. The work of local and regional craftsman adds unique artisanal features that include Groll Ornamental Iron, Eastern White Cedar beams with flared roots in-tact, faux painting and custom woodwork throughout.

    With a nod to Deep Creek Lake history, part of the 1941 cabin that was located on the lot was incorporated into the stately dining room. Elements like wormy chestnut walls, exposed beams and the original fireplace give it a warm and rustic elegance that can only come with time.

    Throughout the rest of the sprawling main level, you will find ten foot ceilings, five panel doors, and ten inch baseboards. In the kitchen, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances along with an eight-foot center island and custom cabinetry will please any gourmet. The leisure room’s massive fireplace creates the perfect backdrop for family gatherings. Doors leading to the porcelain tile terrace let in lake breezes to keep this area cool.

    Set apart from the rest of the sleeping quarters each of the main level master suites offer private havens. The first has a cabin-feel that reminds you that you are in the mountains with rough sawn, bark-on Eastern White Cedar lining the walls. The second offers more space with a sitting room that is outfitted with a morning kitchen. It has doors that open to a private terrace and sauna. Two ensuite baths and a roomy walk-in closet complete this space.

    A dramatic curved staircase draws you to the upper level loft area where you can get a better view of the authentic moose antler chandelier that is adorned with carvings of American Bald Eagles. Three of the upstairs bedrooms face the lake and have sweeping views. The remaining two are generously sized and are outfitted with sinks for convenience. Expanding your living space, a casual rec-room is located above the garage. Climb another set of stairs to the third floor master suite where you have miles of lake views.

    Additional features worth noting include an attached garage with two stalls, central air conditioning throughout most of the home, Kohler fixtures, CertainTeed polypropylene siding and blown-in insulation on top of bat insulation.

    Experience outdoor living at its best when you sip your coffee on the covered terrace that overlooks the private Type A dock. Sunrise views will greet early risers each morning, and it is easy to imagine weekend afternoons spent entertaining family and friends.

    Truly a beautiful property inside and out, this home is ideally positioned to enjoy all four seasons at Deep Creek Lake.
