A waterfront homeowner’s dream house, this unique property on the West River elevates the concept of waterfront living to an extraordinary level. Originally built in 1940, the house was sold in 2002, and a new home was custom built on the lot by West River Builders, Inc. in 2006.

The two-level craftsman-style home, which is situated on Pace’s Point, a private peninsula nestled in a serene waterfront village, is the perfect retreat—offering not only luxurious amenities but also an upscale, relaxing lifestyle. The property, which was listed on August 4, 2015, closed on June 16, 2016.
“This property is one of a kind and arguably one of the most unique waterfronts in our region,” says Travis Gray of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the listing agent for the property. “The well-appointed custom home boasts 270-degree water views and complete privacy.”

With its exquisite detailing, including crown molding, wainscoting on the first floor, 13-foot ceilings, and hardwood floors, this home is the epitome of luxury. The gourmet kitchen features a granite island, custom signature cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. Huge windows offer magnificent views of the water from the dining room and bar. The living room features a built-in entertainment center, a wood-burning fireplace, and glass French doors that lead to an outdoor dining porch—perfect for entertaining.
Boasting spectacular views of the water, the master suite includes a built-in bookcase, a spacious walk-in closet with his-and-her built-in drawers and cabinets, and an enchanting coffee porch. With its panoramic water views, the master bath features double vanities, granite counters, a claw foot freestanding tub, and an extra-large shower.

The exterior elements of the home are equally luxurious and include a two-car garage, multiple porches, and lovely landscaping. And, of course, a waterfront home wouldn’t be complete without amazing water features, including a pier, a floating dock, and a boat lift.
