About 13697 Sylvan Dr

Imagine the perfect setting on the east shore of Flathead Lake: a quaint cozy beach house nestled on a level gravel beach with a natural rock promontory. Kayaks, paddle boards, and umbrellas are playfully scattered on the beach. The jet skis rest patiently on lifts astride the covered dock protecting the boat also ready to go. The colorful sunset illuminates the entire scene as you stack the wood in the fire pit. You will have to decide whether to sleep in the cabin, listening to the gentle lap of the water on the beach or head up to the amenities of the gorgeous main residence. Although completed just over 12 years ago, the home feels as though it has been here for decades. Extensive use of rock and timber accentuate the detail and quality throughout the space. Fine woodwork, locallybuilt cabinetry, doors and windows compliment the amazing stonework embellishing the entire property. Built by master builder Tony Mikowski and his extraordinary band of tradesmen, the execution of design and finish are illusive, if not impossible to find in today's world. The layout features main floor living with the thoughtful master suite, the cozy living room, spacious kitchen, and serviceable dining room, all conveniently situated with access to an amazing covered porch wrapping around the entire western elevation of the home. The perfect place to enjoy a great bottle of wine, cocktails and an exquisite dinner while watching the spectacular sunsets over Flathead Lake. There is a second master bedroom suite and two additional guest bedrooms on the upper floor allowing plenty of room for the many guests longing to share this incredible experience. Above the substantial rock double garage structure is a large inviting space ideal for an office, bunk room or game room and even includes a bathroom. The grounds are impeccable with covered log walkways and stone walkways winding through thoughtfully placed shrubbery, flowers, and landscaping. This is truly a space to create a lifetime of memories: long lazy summer weeks, kayaking and boating on the lake, summer and winter sunsets by the fire, lunches on the covered porch, weddings on the grounds and amazing quiet times together. The sense of home, peace, serenity, relaxation, and adventure will follow you all the days of your life. If your tastes dictate additional privacy and space for guests, the adjoining property to the north is also available. The property consists of 1.46 acres and an additional 145 lineal feet of level graveled Flathead Lake front. There is a charming guest house with a large entertainment deck capturing incredible lake views nestled atop an updated boat house. Structures like this are exceptional as they are no longer allowed to be built along the shoreline of the lake. There are two excellent building sites to choose from and an updated over-sized double garage/shop available for extra storage of all the water and recreational toys. The combination of the two properties offers a rare opportunity to own a truly special residence in a treasured location on over 3 3/4 acres with 370 of level usable Flathead waterfront.
