ranch gates. This parcel features 13.96 acres+- acres and the 4,000 sf log home that boasts
180-degree views of the lake. The manicured grounds have been terraced to slope

The 4-bedroom home underwent a total remodel by famed architect Jack Arnold to create
living spaces that take advantage of the panoramic views. A large veranda invites
outdoor entertaining along with a lake-side outdoor living area that features a
kitchen, oversized hot tub, large pergola and gas fireplace.
The seller utilized the professional services of Charles Faudree, a Tulsa-based
interior designer who has worked throughout the United States and Europe. Faudree
added some whimsical touches such as using an old upright safe as the pedestal for
the wash basin in the powder room, and painting air conditioning vents and electrical
outlets to blend into the timber walls.
Inside, the home’s south wing contains the master suite and features a small sitting
room, luxury bath with jetted Jason tub, shower with travertine and a large master
closet with natural lighting. The kitchen is gourmet friendly with two islands,
two dual-convection Jenn-Aire oven/range units, Kitchen Aide side-by-side refrigerator,
microwave, dishwasher and icemaker and Italian Travertine floor tiles. A sunroom
on one side of the kitchen offers a pleasant dining area with a wall of floor-to-ceiling
A cozy family room is across from the kitchen and opens to a larger formal living
room with a large stone fireplace flanked by French doors leading to the deck. A
floating staircase made from hand-hewn timber leads to the second floor where an
oversized landing serves as an office and library. Two bedrooms, each with private
baths and oversized closets, and a game room complete the upper level.
The lower level of the home contains a fourth bedroom that is also the home’s safe
room. Here the designers added two trompe l’oeil images – a faux window on the wall
and a faux wooden door on the safe room’s steel door. The lower level also has access
to the 3-car garage, cedar closet, mechanical room and large storage room at one
end, and casual living room with fireplace that opens to the outdoor living area
on the other end.

generator capable of running all services in the home and is located in an area
sectioned off with a fence for aesthetic appearance. Also outside are two owned
500-gallon propane tanks.
