If you haven’t seen it already, Plumtree Properties has just completed a spectacular custom home project in Lake Anna, Virginia known as Eagles Cove. I do not use the term “spectacular” lightly. I mean it as literally as you can take it. From luxury interiors, to breathtaking views, to a deluxe boat house, it has everything. This house allows you the comfort of ultra luxury modern conveniences while being only feet away from the great outdoors. Here is a breakdown of some of the outdoor features that give you such versatility in a luxury lakefront home.
Breathtaking view of Lake Anna
Whether you are indoors or outdoors being able to see the Lake is critical. In a world of mass produced Mcneighborhoods, the view is often replaced with neighbors bordering you 5 feet away on every side. Not here..
Eagles Cove has a generous number of windows to give you that view of the lake. Regardless of weather, temperature, or season you will get to enjoy the seasons by the Lake.
Nothing is as vibrant as natural light
Windows allow your house to be filled with soft natural sunlight. This is a feature you will see in many of the Plum Tree Properties custom homes. The styles of the windows are different and unique to each custom home but they incorporate lots of windows.
Access to the Outdoors: An essential to any custom lake home
Eagles Cove is built on a site that gives you a pristine view of the Lake. As a builder, we incorporated as many ways for you not to just see the lake, but to actually enjoy the outdoors in all four seasons in a lot of different ways.
3 levels of outdoor access
I have seen a few luxury homes with three stories. But I rarely see them with 3 different floor levels of access to the outdoors. If there is a way to commune with nature, this home has it covered. Whether you want to be outside in the shade of the patio, enjoying a mosquito free family dinner at one of the oversized screened in porches, or just roasting marshmallows over the firepit in the crisp Fall evening air, this is your dream abode.
Yard level patio
On the ground or first floor you have access to an open but shaded area next to the first floor screened in porch. This is the perfect place to sit on a warm fall day if you want shade but want to be completely outdoors.
1st level and 2nd level oversized screened in porches
Don’t let weather cancel your outdoor meal plans. With the first and second level oversized screened in porch you can fit the entire family, and then some at this formal full size dining room table. And of course you dine with a full view of the lake. Definitely a must for those mild Spring and Fall Days.
Smaller sunporch on the 2nd level
If you just want to lounge in the sunlight, a smaller screened in porch awaits you on the side of the second level. This sunporch is perfect for just hanging out and enjoying the breeze.
3rd story sun deck
You have to work on your tan. Time to walk up to the 3rd story outdoor sundeck. In addition to an unobstructed path for the sunlight, you also have a commanding view of the yard, lake and area. That alone makes this a great place to spend time as you look out, and enjoy, your Virginia estate.
2nd story outdoor deck
There is also a second story outdoor deck near the sun porch. Excellent for a crisp Fall day.
Fire pit and patio ring
If you have ever enjoyed a campfire, you will need no introduction to the firepit. The firepit sits midway between the Lake and the house. Nested near the lake area you can enjoy evenings in just about any weather. It is great as a meeting area for guests, or just to enjoy the quiet serenity of the lake over a crackling fire.
Did I mention boating?
Beyond just the woods, Lake Anna is a water sportsman paradise. If you can do it on water then Lake Anna is your destination. The peaceful lake is perfect for canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, paddleboating, jetskiing, or fishing.
The detail of the outdoor options was so intense I almost forgot to mention your water access to Lake Anna.
For docking or boarding boats you have the option of this expansive bulkhead lining the area bordering the lake.
Dock and Boat house with 2nd story sundeck
The grand jewel of our unlimited. Lake Anna water access is our two story deck and boat house combo. This a great place to dock,swim or sunbath on the 2nd story sundeck
