Paradise on the water! Sprawling across 1.13 acres, 181 Cornel Lane is a massive lake front home. It feels like you're worlds away from everyone on this private lot at the end of the family friendly neighborhood of Dogwood Lakes. Designed with family in mind, it's an entertainers dream with an open floor plan and an enormous great room. The stately design delights from the moment you drive up, with sandy colored shakes, tall front porch columns, and a massive patio that overlooks the sprawling lawn, serving up curb appeal from every angle. You can see the sunlight twinkling off the water behind the house as you pull up to the two car garage. From the picturesque street view to the breathtaking water views in the back, it's hard to draw yourself away from the beauty of the land to even go inside. The open floor plan is a dream, with tall windows all around and thick crown molding bringing elegance to the large space. The entire residence is 5,256 SQFT. The gourmet kitchen features all the things that make cooking and hosting enjoyable, like all the granite counter space you could ever wish for, including an island with a large, solid block of granite on top (and all the bakers and cooks shouted with joy!). While it seems like most homes skimp on the kitchen cabinets, that's not the case here. There is room for every single serving platter, china bowl, and dish set... and then some! A gas stove is the cherry on top. A bright sunroom with all the views would make an excellent formal dining room. The room near the entry could be an office, play room, or even a formal living room. Family and friends can spill into the well-crafted living room, which features an abundance of windows so you can breath in those lake views from every angle. With the tall windows and excellent space, it's really a decorator's playground. Striking wide-planked, medium toned hardwood floors grace most of the main floor. Quality, high-end finishes, like crown molding throughout the first floor living space and chair rails add refined details. 1300 SQFT of that huge space is unfinished space and walkout basement, but all the hard work in those spaces has already been done! It's permitted, with the plumbing, electricity, and new HVAC until already hooked up, running, and working. Just add walls! After a night of entertaining, guests can head to the den. Watch movies and relax with your loved ones, or make it a study and get a little extra work in. When it's time to call it a night, everyone will head to their own little sanctuaries, all located upstairs. There are 4 bedrooms for the kids/guests, plus the master suite, which is also located upstairs. The master bathroom is enormous, featuring a shower with a separate soaking tub. The vanity is huge and will easily accommodate all the beauty things. A walk-in closet completes the dream. Children or guests have their own spaces. There are four total bathrooms in the house and all the bedrooms are sizable.. The location of this stunner is unbeatable. The gentle sounds of lapping water are like balm to the soul after a stressful day. The massive back deck will be your favorite spot to enjoy the water views. With a lakeside bench, fire pit, and all that deck space, you might forget you're so close to a city. It's all the sweet, beautiful, spacious country-meets-the-beach, life style you crave, without that wasted commuting time. A short drive from downtown Wilmington, the Dogwood Lakes neighborhood features spacious, wooded lots, sidewalks, and lakes. A large watercraft launch is right down the road. Located in the esteemed Topsail School District, this stunning home is just minutes from the sandy beaches of Topsail and a short jaunt to Wilmington and Camp Lejeune. It is the essence of comfortable Southern living. Call me today to take a tour of 181 Cornel Lane in Hampstead.
