A secluded setting and luxury details are just two hallmarks of the home at 2404 Fountain Circle in Crystal Water Villas, Lambertville. Experience the resort feel of this Monroe HBA Parade home for yourself.

Resort Living in Lambertville

From the outside, it is a charming villa. Inside, it s a 2,100 square-foot luxury home. All around is the serenity of nature, nestled within what will soon be a resort-style community with the addition of a luxurious pool and clubhouse planned for spring of 2007. Life doesn t get much better.

Built by Country Club Partners, the home at 2404 Fountain Circle in Crystal Water Villas is one of 66 properties encircling a 3-acre lake in Lambertville, Michigan, one half mile north of Sterns Road off Douglas. Set on 26 acres of woodland, the location-location-location couldn t be lovelier. And it will stay that way, thanks to restrictions that limit future development in the surrounding preserve. That means the sound of birds, breeze and splashing water from the lake s lighted fountain will be as soothing ten years from now as it is today.

It is difficult to leave these beautiful surroundings, but the welcoming home beckons. Gray stacked stone and vinyl siding highlight the exterior, accented with pewter carriage lights, arched windows and a covered porch. The walkway leads to a door with prairie-style sidelights, and is bordered by planting beds. The garage door is adorned with decorative windows. Already, the attention to detail is apparent.

It continues inside, starting with the foyer. Tile floors, set on the diagonal, lead visitors forward to the main living space. To the left is the second of three bedrooms. A soaring window floods the space with light, making it an ideal den. Next off the foyer is a full bath, followed by a laundry room with built-in cabinets, utility sink and transom window. Step across the foyer and you enter the third bedroom. Here the eye is drawn upward to a cathedral-style tray ceiling with fan and light. It should be noted that all the living spaces in the home are vaulted and similarly equipped. The closets throughout are deep, the hallways are wide, and the baseboards are substantial. Windows grace every space, from bathrooms to garage to laundry all signs of quality construction.

This is never more apparent than in the open living area at the heart of the home. Here, an expansive great room, kitchen and dinette come together to create a grand space, ideal for entertaining. To the left, a V-shaped island with double sink and solid-surface bevel-edged countertops overlooks the dinette and great room. Home Kraft kitchen cabinets and a large pantry grace two walls. A dishwasher and microwave make life easy. The roomy dinette features a bay window and opaque-glass chandelier. The lushly carpeted great room offers over 342 square-feet of living space, but somehow manages to feel cozy and warm an effect enhanced by a tile-fronted fireplace with mantel. The inclination is to sit and stay. Then again, every room says make yourself at home none more so than the sunroom directly ahead, and the glass-enclosed porch beyond.

The uses for these rooms are limitless. The sunroom would make a relaxing TV or game room, or could be transformed into an elegant formal dining space if desired. The adjoining porch is heated and air-conditioned for three or more seasons of enjoyment year-round. What a great place for plants or to curl up with a book!

At 2404 Fountain Circle the enclosed porch has been fitted with upgraded carpet in a tropical pattern that complements the lake views outside its doors. Three sets of prairie-style sliders provide access to this outdoor common space, and to the surrounding stamped-concrete patio.

Returning to the great room, a hall to the left leads to the master retreat. With 238 square-feet of space, there s plenty of room for furniture, while a walk-in closet holds clothing with equal ease. The master bath features a soaking tub, with wide window above and tiled shelves at either end, ideal for plants, towels and bath salts. A double-wide glass-enclosed shower with seat, double vanity and water closet complete the amenities.

In addition, the home features a 20 x36 partial basement and high-efficiency Bryant heating and air conditioning system; plus a number of unexpected features that are standard in all Crystal Water villas: a two and a half-car garage with pull-down stairs to the attic, an in-ground sprinkler system, in-ground downspouts, automatic garage opener and keyless entry, maintenance-free low-E argon-gas insulated windows, and Owens Corning insulation in the walls, ceiling and crawlspace.

The only thing it needs now is you.
