Come Home To: 58 Lessard Lake Estates


This 3,500 square foot four-bedroom cedar log lakefront dream home has it all and is situated on a fully fenced and landscaped 1-acre lake front parcel at the end of one of the bays at Lessard Lake (see satellite photos). The home is located on the lot for maximum privacy, views of the lake from almost every room in the home, and picture-perfect sunsets!

MAIN LEVEL
The main floor features a massive 21′ x 22′ great room with soaring 20-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and custom stone fireplace. The kitchen has a centre island that seats six, walls of cupboard space, pot drawers, corner pantry, and a full complement of Heartland ‘Classic II’ appliances. The 14′ x 10′ breakfast nook is big enough for the largest of family gatherings and offers access to the rear deck through double garden doors. The master bedroom has a four-piece ensuite that includes a corner jetted tub and a walk-in shower. The walk-in closet was actually designed as an office in the original plans so there is plenty of room for both his and her clothing. Rounding out the main floor is a second bedroom, an office/ den, laundry room, and four-piece main bathroom.

UPPER LEVEL
Ascend the custom staircase to the 21′ x 14′ loft-style bonus room overlooking the great room below. Two additional 21′ x 14′ bedrooms and another two-piece bathroom complete the upper floor plan.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES
No expense was spared…the staircase, fireplace, and stone-surround for the fireplace were all custom designed for this home. Lead crystal chandeliers hang in the great room and breakfast nook. There’s even a 22′ x 14′ power awning with wind sensor for those hot, hot summer days.

There’s also enough heated indoor parking for your motor home, four vehicles, and most of your toys. The attached shop/ garages consist of an 18′ x 17′ single drive through garage with doors at both ends, a 40′ x 16′ bay with 14′ ceiling and steel racking, and a 48′ x 14′ bay with 14′ ceiling.

Additional features that aren’t immediately obvious or visible to the naked eye include: drilled well, septic tank and field, in-ground sprinkler system, in-floor slab heating throughout the main floor (including all attached shop/ garage bays), water distiller, landscaping with water features and stone walls, security system (including the main gate), low-e argon gas filled windows, air-to-air ventilation system, and aluminum cladding on all exterior window casings, fascia, and door frames,
