1/4 Acre Woods on Lake Waukewan! A truly Magical home with canal access to Lake Waukewan in downtown Meredith! Welcome to 1/4 Acre Woods, a stunning work of art with amenities that check all the boxes. Lovingly built in 2003, incorporating old world ship beams with modern amenities, and even more recent updates that leave you wondering what new surprise is around the next corner. As you might have guessed, ¼ Acre Woods owes its name to the Winnie the Pooh stories where Christopher Robin and his friends lived and played. Although they frolicked in over 100 acres, this is only ¼ of those acres and, once you have been here, you will appreciate the similarities. Every detail of the home was centered around creating a comfortable playground to inspire adventure, playfulness and calm. The oversized 4 bedrooms offer 3 master suite retreats, each with their own full bath, and one large open floor bunk room that will easily and comfortably welcome your families’. All these accommodations are in addition to the large second floor sleeping porch and an extra first floor sleeper sofa in a private area. There is central in floor radiant heat throughout. All baths, and the laundry, have tile or marble, upgraded vessel sinks and faucets, bead board wainscoting, quiet vents with heat lamps, and unique personalities. All other rooms have complementary ambiance, wood floors, bead board wainscoting, ceiling fans, cross ventilation for breezes, and are furnished with quality pillows, bedding, antiques, designer lamps, mirrors, rugs, and accessories. Starting from the top, the 3rd floor boasts a recently renovated, relaxing, master bedroom with ensuite full bath that includes a sitting area to unwind and enjoy the water view., Queen bed, a child's trundle bed and rocker for the young family to sleep. The remainder of the 3rd floor is opened to expansive views of the lake from a playroom/bunk room filled with games, toys, an air hockey table, 2 sleeper sofas, 6 twin beds, comfy and unique chairs, and a half bath with its own ship’s porthole with water view. This more than ample carefree space allows for all of the kids, big or small, young or old, to hang out, play, while away rainy days, tell secrets, forge lifelong friendships and, of course, to snuggle in and sleep comfortably. 2nd Floor: (1 King Master Suite, 1 Queen Ensuite, 1 full bath and laundry, 1 Full Futon Sleeping Porch) On the second floor you will find the master suite sporting a king bed and full, serene, ensuite bathroom. The master suite is truly a private oasis with beautiful views of Waukewan from your windows, an antique grand armoire and writing desk, cozy sitting area for two, and plenty of space to catch your breath. On the second floor you will also enjoy a third, spa inspired, bedroom with ensuite bath, with water views, a queen bed, and a separate “nursery” area offering a full-sized crib and a child's bed. The second-floor landing offers access to the large children’s bath and laundry center and a pleasant sitting area with the “library” fashioned from centuries old ship timbers. The second story sleeping porch is fully screened and has a queen futon for sleeping and curtains for privacy. This porch connects to the yard via the outside landing with its custom-built curved bench. From here take the wide, sturdy, circular stairs which land at sliding doors. To top it off, the second story screened porch seating area offers a great happy hour spot, lake views, and birdwatching. First Level:( Great Room, ¾ Lake Bath, Queen Pull Out Sofa).
