Two lots means very wide waterfront exposure overlooking Lake Conroe, including a pier with slip on one side and a double-deck boathouse on the other.  Boathouse includes three slips with lifts and a poured-cement upper deck complete with covered cooking/serving/bar area. Contemporary design with retro/art deco interior.  Two-story features first and second floor masters.  Total of three bedrooms up.  Views of Lake Conroe from every room in the home. Upper observation deck plus covered patio below.  The open lot shown to the right here is included in the listed price.  Add a pool, build a second home, or keep it as open space and enjoy the elbow room. Lots of choices. Open water is actually a somewhat protected finger of the lake with the main body of the lake on the other side of this peninsula and easily/quickly accessible.  Here it's perhaps a half mile wide and runs south (to the right) all the way to the dam at the south end of Lake Conroe. You're looking due east here, meaning sunny mornings and shady afternoons.  Perfect, as you veteran lake dwellers well know.  In the foreground is a very large grill/smoker. The white buildings you see on the other side of the lake is Piney Shores Resort.  The residential area to the right of the resort include the gated communities of Bella Vita and Pebble Glen. Standing on your pier looking back at the home and across to your two-tier boat house. As viewed from the bulkhead of Lake Conroe.  You may have noticed in other photos that the home to the left (in this photo) is in the process of constructing an in-ground pool.  Now, let's take a look at the interior. Vaulted ceilings in the family room and windows everywhere.  The gas fireplace to the right is double sided and open to the library/den/reading room on the other side. The spiral staircase seen through the window leads to the upper observation deck which also has a bridge to the upper master suite. From this angle, you begin to see how the upper level is arranged, and it has two bedrooms to the left and one bedroom to the right. The doorway to the right of the fireplace leads to the "library" and the office (a separate room).  The step down to the left of the fireplace leads to an area designed as a workout space as evidenced by the mirrored wall and ballet bar. The dining room, like all rooms in this home, has an open view across your expansive, manicured back lawn to Lake Conroe. I did mention art deco didn't I?  Quirky?  Charming?  Fun?  All in the eye of the beholder.  Meanwhile, the entire wall seen beyond the stools at the breakfast bar is comprised of floor-to-ceiling cabinets.  Storage galore... Directly behind you is the breakfast area with open views to Lake Conroe. The door to the right leads to the utility room.  There's also a half bath in that area and an outside entrance providing convenient and easy access to/from the lake. This breakfast area was expansion of the home added by the current owners.  Also with an outside entrance and windows for the views. Now let's explore the other side of the downstairs. Notice the wet bar that's located to easily serve the family room as well as the library/den and office. We'll start to the left and see the "workout" area that leads to the first floor suite. The "workout" room is currently used as a second den and, because of the configuration of the home, provides a separate living area to those using this bedroom.  Great for multi-generational living or offering visiting guests a bit of privacy. As always, a view of Lake Conroe.  There's also sliding door access to the outside covered patio. The first floor bedroom with windows to Lake Conroe.  To the right you can see edges of the construction being done as the neighbors add an in-ground pool. Full bath accessible from the first floor bedroom as well as the "workout"/sitting area that you just saw. Around to the other side, the wet bar leads to the "library" on the left and the office on the right.  The library shares a double sided gas fireplace with the family room, and also has an open rail separating it from the "workout" space. From this angle, you can more clearly see how the library adjoins the "workout" area. The office offers lots built-ins as well as plenty of space for to position a free-standing desk the way you'd like. Heading back to the family room as we proceed upstairs, the art-deco sink adds tot he fun of this retro space. You're upstairs on the bridge that separates the two bedrooms around to the right and the one bedroom immediately to your left. Now you're on the other side of the bridge looking back toward the entry into the one bedroom. Notice that you have upper and lower windows, allowing you to let in as much or as little light as you wish. The upstairs master features it's own free-standing gas fireplace.  Oh yeah, and great views of Lake Conroe. The master bath features a walk-in shower (to the right) and an exceptionally large step-in jetted tub. The quirky art deco flourish continue here with two different shaped sinks. If you look closely, you can see notches to accommodate hanging bars.  Yep, this is actually a massive walk-in closet that has been creatively modified to create a "bunkhouse" environment for the grand kids.  Can be reverted to a closet in minutes if that's your preference. The second of the two bedrooms on this side of the upstairs. This is the bathroom that serves the lone bedroom on the one side of the home.  It's also accessible to the other bedroom and the "bunkhouse." And here's that final bedroom, complete with sliding door access to it's own balcony overlooking Lake Conroe. This is from the upper balcony accessible from the upstairs master.  Now, let's go take a closer look at your boathouse. Covered area complete with grilling space and a walk-up bar area.  Exceptional views across Lake Conroe. Looking north. Looking south.  Bench seating surrounds the poured-concrete deck. The two lots combined total over 3/4 of an acre.  Very rare value to find this much waterfront acreage anywhere on Lake Conroe and particularly at this price point. One more look from the pier before we go back inside for a second. A quick look at the utility room.  The slatted door to the left opens to reveal your water heater.  The open door in the back opens to the half bath, and directly behind you is a door that leads outside.  The kitchen is directly to your left. Yet another "extra" room in this home is this multi-purpose, climate controlled-space that's adjacent to the garage.  Storage?  Second office?  Home business headquarters? The foyer from the interior with the family room to the right. Of course there's a lava rock wall in the foyer.  No retro, art deco home could possibly be complete without it. Covered patio provides lakeside relaxation at its finest. Yep, sitting in your swing and soaking up the views.  Whether as a weekend retreat or full-time living, it's all yours.  Peace, relaxation, and tranquility yet you're only minutes from all the dining, shopping, and world-class medical facility amenities of The Woodlands.
