The house is ideally situated on the lot to allow fabulous views of the lake and the meticulously manicured grounds. The terrain to the lake slopes gently allowing for good run-off. Adjacent to the south of the property is a permanent wooded greenbelt park, and the lake borders the east side of the property.

Water, Fishing:

Lake Tyler is a constant level lake covering a surface area of 4,737 acres which is owned and managed by the City of Tyler. This lake, created in 1949, has a great reputation for being a consistent largemouth bass fishery but also stocked with spotted bass, crappie, catfish and sunfish. The lake is a popular location for several angler tournaments that are held in the evenings throughout the summer. The lake is also popular for boating and personal watercraft. The Lake Tyler Marina, across the bay from the subject property, is a popular place to gather with friends or grab a bite to eat , but also handy for any boat repair and/or maintenance needs.


The beautiful home with waterfront views of Lake Tyler has great drive up appeal. The property feels private and secure as you enter through the impressive code accessed tall rod iron gates with stone pillars and drive down the paved driveway to the main residence. Built in 1999, the home is inviting with a generous front porch and balcony, and double doors lead into the grand entryway of the home. A formal dining, living and study with glass doors are accessible from the entryway. Just off the formal dining room is the large open gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar, and comfortable den with wood burning fireplace. The gourmet kitchen is a chefs dream with a Wolfe Professional duel-fuel range and vent-a-hood, double ovens, two sinks, and huge side-by-side KitchenAid refrigerator/freezer. Additionally there are granite countertops, large center-island for food preparation and entertaining, walk-in pantry and abundant store in the kitchen area. Views of the outdoor entertaining area and pool area are visible from the screened-in sunporch and other rooms along the back of the house. The secluded downstairs master-suite is spacious with a wood burning fireplace, and large master bath with separate tub, shower and dual sinks. The suite includes a separate room that could be an office, study, or exercise room with easy access to the spa and heated pool.

Two sets of stairways lead upstairs to three spacious bedrooms, three and half bathrooms and a den that could double as a guest room. The many upgrades to the home include electric shades, outdoor lighting, 8 solid core doors throughout the house, 12 ceilings downstairs and 24 ceilings in the formal living room. There is also plenty of parking at the house with a three-car oversized garage, and separate porte-cochere parking for two vehicles off the side of the home.

Other improvements to the estate include a heated/cooled cabana with kitchen and bathroom, helicopter pad and bus barn, party house/man cave with full kitchen, bath and three roll-up doors for outdoors entertaining, maintenance building and bath, and a air-conditioned four bay boat house with guest accommodations, full kitchen fireplace and large deck for watching the moon rise in the evening. This meticulously maintained property must be seen to be fully appreciated as there is no other like it on Lake Tyler.
