I have a new listing in Fontana and it's one that I am really excited to tell you about. There is something special about this completely rennovated contemporary home that is tucked away in a wooded section of Fontana, just one mile from downtown. The sweet little village of Fontana is located on the southwest corner of Geneva Lake and anchored by the Abbey Resort & Avani Spa and iconic restaurants Chuck's and Gordy's. There is so much more to do in Fontana, as well, including the Little Bar, Kimkasi Pub, My Blue Heaven Ice Cream, Coffee Mill, to name a few. There are festivals throughout the year that take place in Reid Park, including the annual Fontana Lobster Boil, Pig in the Park, Hello Dave Fundraiser for Farm Way, and events at the Harbor including the Annual Antique Boat Show. You can even take in a movie on the beach on select weekends throughout the summer. 

My listing at 228 Stearns Road is a quick walk to all the fun in the village, but located in a wonderful area with mature trees and larger lots, away from the crowds that flock to the lake in the summer months. This is the ultimate family home complete with your own private oasis! 

This contemporary home has 5 Bedrooms, 4 full baths and 2 half baths, and has an open floor plan that is perfect for entertaining. The ceilings are high and vaulted throughout the main level and the finishes are high quaity. The kitchen is fit for a chef with a Viking Stove, 48" Kitchen Aid Built in Refrigerator, beautiful lighting positioned over the large island, walk in pantry and a large eating area, all of which overlook the oversized fenced yard.   

There are 15 rooms throughout the three levels with 5,500 square feet, which provides plenty of places for people to gather. You'll find wide planked custom hardwood floors throughout, a see-through fireplace between the living room and great room, and walls of windows overlooking the picturesque .73 acre yard.

There are two primary suites, one on the first floor which opens to a private patio and another on the second floor with a terrace overlooking the yard. There are two additional bedrooms on the second floor plus a versatile bedroom/office in the lower level.

The floor plan flows well between indoors and outdoors with access to an enclosed porch, covered porch, patios, and a terrace.  The lower level is a show stopper with a fun entertainment area with a wet bar, a meditation studio and a spa with an Endless pool that will allow you to swim laps against the current. There is even a treadmill in the water and a hot tub at the opposite end as well as an exercise room.

The property itself is vast with lush grounds and outbuildings. There is a two car attached garage, a two car detached garage and a shed for additional storage. The home has a whole house generator for a seamless transition of electricity during power outages. 

The pictures don't do this property justice and I hope you'll stop by and see it. While I have seen my fair share of high end properties in the Geneva Lake area, this one stands out. It has so many places to gather inside and out and the finishes are eclectic in nature with a modern contemporary flair. It's a fun and visually appealing house that is perfect for spending time with family and friends. Hope to see you at 288 Stearns Road soon! Call me to arrange a private showing or click here.
