Local real estate: Updated lakefront home ideal for entertaining

Property located on shores of Lake Sylvan.

This completely updated brick-and-stucco home, located on the shores of Lake Sylvan, was originally built in 1966. It is in the Northeastern Local School District.

A circular concrete drive leads to the main house and its attached four-car garage and to the detached four-car garage, both with openers. The front entry is covered and has double doors and an exterior light fixture.

The inside entry has luxury vinyl-plank flooring, a double closet and built-in cabinets. It also has recessed lighting.

The entry steps up to the eat-in kitchen with a beamed, vaulted ceiling, luxury vinyl-plank flooring and a ceiling fan in the breakfast room. There are two islands, one with a breakfast bar, quartz counters and two decorative chandeliers over the islands. Appliances include two French door refrigerators, a dishwasher, double-wall ovens, cooktop and wine cooler. The updated cabinets have built-ins, including a roll-out spice rack.

The family room is open to the kitchen and has a focal point stone gas fireplace with wood mantel. The ceiling is vaulted and has recessed lighting and a ceiling fan. There are oversized windows on two sides; and windows also flank the fireplace, offering views of the lake.
