Why We Love It
1. Water Front. If you are looking for a home at Buckeye Lake, everyone wants to have property with direct lake access, water frontage, and water views. This home has some of all that. From a very short channel to the main lake, you'll be having fun on the water at a moment's notice. From the deck, you have views of the lake on one side and mature trees to the other. The property is lined with a sea-wall with plenty of room to tie up multiple boats along the wall. The current owners have caught many fish right off their deck.
2. Upgrades. There have been many upgrades to this home in the last few years including the very recent granite counter tops with subway tile backsplash and stainless steel kitchen appliances. This kitchen packs a lot of punch in the style department. In the last few years, there has been new hardwood flooring, a new roof, and ceilings throughout the home.
3. Garage. Much larger than it looks from the outside, there is room to park two cars but also has plenty of room for multiple work benches and additional width for more storage. This is a dream garage; it has central drains, is heated, and has plenty of room for all the extra storage that you might need when you live on a lake. If that wasn’t enough, it also has full storage access above.
What You Need To Know
Want a Buckeye Lake home with direct access to the lake? This home is for you. With water frontage at the end of a short canal, you have easy access to the lake.
As you approach this 1,216 SF ranch home you will notice the front yard is fenced in with flower beds all along the fence and front porch. Don’t worry, these beds are planted with perennial flowers to give color for each season so you can spend your time on the water and not in the garden. Did you notice that covered front porch? It extends all the way across the front of the home with plenty of room for relaxing or entertaining.
As you enter the front door your eyes first catch the unique wood flooring that runs throughout the home. The nice sized dining room has access to the updated kitchen. The kitchen was just updated with granite counter tops (even granite counter in the pantry), backsplash, sink, and faucet. There is a brand new dishwasher and refrigerator, while the stove is less than 2 years old. There is a really large pantry for additional cabinet space.
As you leave the kitchen passing back through the dining room, there is a short hallway with access to the bathroom and living room. You will notice the bathroom also just recently got new granite counters and a backsplash. The sink and faucet are new as well. While you may not have first noticed but behind the door, there is plenty of storage in a deep cabinet.
In the living room, you will immediately notice windows and full glass doors that look out to the water. This is a large room with plenty of room for entertaining or watching a movie... or opening up to the outdoors where you have a two-tiered deck that sits under a pergola.
Back inside, there is another hallway that leads to the utility room (with washer and dryer) and access to the bedrooms. There are three bedrooms but note; access to one bedroom is through a bedroom. Lots of possibilities here, the current owner uses the third bedroom as an office.
Now, back outside because... well... it's beautiful out here. The views from here are fantastic; just a short distance down the canal to the lake. Along the entire length of the property is a metal sea-wall. There is decking along the sea-wall for easy access in and out of the boats or room for fishing. If the views were not enough, the backyard also has a few perennial flower beds for additional beauty with low maintenance.
The garage is just simply amazing. Take a closer look; it is heated and has center floor drains so you can clean your vehicles in any season. You will notice it is larger than just a two car garage; it is wider and much deeper. There are multiple workbenches and still plenty of room for storage. If that is not enough there is also ample storage above the garage.
While not completed, the current owner has been trying to work with the county to obtain the two lots adjacent to this property... the ones with those beautiful trees. While it can be a slow process and there are no guarantees, progress was being made but if you have interest, you may be able to expand your lot a little more.
