About 8607 E Smith Dr, Syracuse IN

This home, located on a quiet channel road, and surrounded by beautiful mature trees, boasts 100 feet of channel frontage on Indiana's largest natural lake. Lake Wawasee has a long standing history of being a summer vacation area since the 1800s, drawing residents from all over the tri-state area, with many from Chicago and Indianapolis. While many homes around the lake are intended primarily for summer use, the lake is certainly a place to enjoy in all seasons and reside on a permanent basis as well. Lake Wawasee offers over 3,500 acres of water and 25 miles of shoreline to enjoy boating, skiing, tubing, and many more activities. As you enter this home, you are drawn in through the entryway into the living room, which has large windows that allow in an abundance of light and views of the channel. This property sits on a T in the channel so instead of looking directly across to neighbors, you can enjoy the open space of the wide channel water. Cozy and full of character, the interior of this home has a true lake cottage feel, but with plenty of space to spread out. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, and is open to the living room. Adjacent to the kitchen and living area is the large dining room with sliding glass doors, leading out onto the patio. Branching off from both sides of the main living area are 3 bedrooms, with an additional room that can be used as an office, den, or additional bedroom. The owner is also offering a $1500 credit for new flooring. The outdoor space with this home is very unique for a channel front home. There is plenty of space both roadside and channel side. The 100 feet of channel frontage really helps to add to the spacious, yet secluded feel of the yard. The pier extends along the seawall and out into the channel, where it provides a wonderful view of the channel as it opens out onto Lake Wawasee. The lake breeze passes through the channel, and right past this lovely home. Whether you are looking for a year-round home, or a lake cottage.
