One of the perks of waterfront living is the ease of access to all the things that help provide an active lifestyle. From going wake boarding in the early hours of the morning to being able to fish off your dock in the evening, waterfront living is ideal for those who seek an active lifestyle or simply love the views. We showcase two extraordinary properties that combine ideal waterfrontage with unique and beautiful homes.
