The party barn, originally built for boat storage, was designed to look like an old Pennsylvania barn with 4′ of stone around the base. Flanked by 2 garage wings allowing for 4+ cars & capped with a cupola, the shingled-style barn has two large doors on either side of the building that allow for a trailered boat or 4+ more cars. The 2nd level is a loft with sleeping/living area with full bathroom, plumbed for potential kitchenette, front & rear terraces, & a spiral staircase to a crow’s nest with amazing views. There is a full property generator & a dog run with kennel just off the rear. Outside enjoy the benefits of beautiful shore living amongst the verdant grounds, mature landscaping & exceptional views. The pier offers 4′ MLW & the shoreline is fully rip-rapped with natural plantings. Set within the pine grove is a putting green with chipping area.
