Spectacular Lakefront Home! Direct lake frontage on highly sought after Deer Island of Bantam Lake. As the largest natural lake in Connecticut, enjoy fishing, sailing, motorized and non-motorized sports this summer and ice fishing and skating in the winter. Situated on a corner lot approximately 150′ from the lake, you can live large on the impressive wraparound deck or host a lawn party in between the fruit trees just steps from the water. This three bedroom contemporary will definitely wow your guests. Enjoy the views of the lake through the walls of windows in every room or from the expansive deck. The impressive great room was added years ago featuring a stunning masonry fireplace perfect to light during the winter months when waiting for the snow to fall. A loft, currently used as an office, overlooks the great room. Plenty of room for entertaining with this home’s open floor plan lined with charming exposed beams and gleaming hardwood floors. The primary suite upstairs offers seclusion and includes ample closet space, gorgeous views of the lake, and full bath with stall shower, jacuzzi tub, and bidet. In the lower level, you will find two additional bedrooms with full bath and two car garage access. Just steps from the main boat launch, get ready to get out on the lake! Short drive to award-winning area restaurants and all conveniences. Do not miss this exceptional opportunity to enjoy lake life on “The Island” in the heart of beautiful Litchfield County!
