Welcome home! This one of a kind custom built home has 3BR's, 4BA's, nearly 4200 sq. ft, and 600 feet of lakeshore on Peter Lake, only 30 minutes from downtown. Features include spotless hardwood floors, terrazzo, high beamed ceilings, granite, limestone, glass, a heated in ground pool, sauna, screened porch, and backs up to the west for amazing sunsets over the lake. With a newly built 6 car garage with an upstairs for endless storage. Nearly 6 acres and meticulously maintained. This one of a kind property on Peter Lake in Medina has only become available due to the seller's desire to downsize as they approach retirement. The seller purchased the residence in 2009 from the bank on a short sale after the real estate market collapse for a greatly reduced value. In the preceding eight years of ownership, the seller has added improvements amounting to well over $200,000 increasing the value, enjoyment, and making the maintenance of the property easier.

Beginning in 2009, the seller had the property surveyed to determine the precise measurement of the lot and to avoid any disputes with neighbors. Please see the plat included at the end of this supplement with approximate lot dimensions 217 x 621 x 486 x 737 and approximately 600 feet of lakeshore. A second survey was completed in 2013 that was more detailed than the first survey completed and is available to the buyer of the property.

In 2010, the seller installed the water fountain in the lake channel, the cedar split rail fence on both sides of the property, the chain link fence around the pool and pool storage house, and upgraded the deck adding benches and other refinements to complete it. Also in this year, the seller had Radon tests completed, which are included near the end of this supplement, with all readings at the "normal" and acceptable level.

In 2011, two new chandeliers were installed: One over the large foyer and another one over the stairway to the Master Bedroom. The chandelier over the stairway is gold plated and has a significant value.

In 2012, the entire exterior of the home was painted. Additionally, the owner added new flooring in the lower entry area.

In 2013, the Ecowater system was added, and the old 2 car garage was demolished and a new Six Car, 40' x 46' garage was built with 10' walls with an upstairs area that will support up to 42 tons. A rock retaining wall was built on the right side and rear of the garage with new landscaping. The old asphalt driveway was removed and a new concrete driveway and sidewalk were added to complete the project.

In 2014, a new pool pump was installed, a new filter system was added to the water system. Additionally a complete irrigation system was installed in the nearly 6 acres of yard, complete with 99 sprinkler heads.

In 2015, all of the handrails on the exterior of the home were upgraded.

In 2016, a new $10,000 pool liner was installed, the septic tank was pumped out and the aerator replaced. A new stainless steel kitchen refrigerator was purchased, and new stair treads were added to the lower stairway to the lower entry.

This turnkey property has been meticulously maintained since it was purchased and is ready for a new owner to enjoy the significant upgrades added and incredible care that the seller has given the property. Welcome home!
