Room to Relax. Room to Retreat

     While it is great to share a lakefront home with family and friends, packing as many as you can on the pull-out couch and extra futon, there are times when we need to decompress.  Times when a little solitude is called for and a time to retreat.
Main home at 2666 Willow Point Drive with wrap around front deck.
     The latest Delavan Lakefront Property offers the best of both of these worlds.  With a centerpiece home on the north shore of the lake, featuring a first floor master suite and expansive enclosed front porch, this unique property also has two other homes for both guests and get-away space.

     Listed for $1.499 million, the latest lakefront is located at 2666 Willow Point Drive, a private road that is just off of North Shore Drive.
     Although building codes do not permit the construction of multiple homes on the same lot, this unique set up is "grandfathered" in and creates one of the most unique opportunities on Delavan Lake.
     The lakefront lot itself is pie shaped with 83 feet of lakefront and 275 feet of road frontage.  Slightly sloped, the property offers views of the water from all three homes.  In the center of the property is a shared green space with room for games and midnight star gazing.
     The four bedroom main home is a newer cape cod style with both a front deck and enclosed front porch spanning the entire length of the lake side.  On the main floor are two family room spaces, one off the expansive brick patio and another in the center of the house.  The kitchen is functional and open with maple cabinets, a breakfast bar and views of the water.  Off the enclosed porch is a small wet bar and multiple access points to the waterfront deck.
Expansive patio space off the main house overlooks Delavan Lake.
     Behind the main home, yet still offering views of Delavan Lake, are the guest quarters.  Generous in size, the second house features five bedrooms, three baths and an open floor plan.  This structure also has a three-car attached garage, walk-out lower level and a master suite with gas fireplace.

     As a place of retreat, there is a two bedroom cottage at the rear of the property.  Perfect for meditation, night owls or unexpected guests, this bungalow has its own lakeside deck and parking area.
