Like owning a lodge, but you don't have to drive to it. Live in it! This unique home was custom built in 1981 by a home builder that wanted his home to be different than what he built every day for his clients. He owned a home in the mountains, but could not find time to use it. So, he built a lodge in Lutz. With the use of cypress logs and beams the feel of "get away" hits immediately when one opens the door with a view of the circular stairway to the owner's suite. The unique architectural use of the circular stairs along with the linework of beams brings an eye-catching impression to everyone that comes through the entry door. But the architecture does not stop with the cypress logs, beams, and railing. The walls are covered with the rare "Pecky Cypress." Less than 10% of harvested cypress yield Pecky Cypress. Natures method of random etching of the wood and placement of knots mesmerizes. If the cypress wood is not enough to bring the outside in, there is the solarium adjoining the living room. The area surrounding the solarium is a combination of oaks and ferns as well as an area remaining is an empty canvas for the new owner's green thumb. Or, leave it as natural. House sits on a little less than one acre. Loaded with trees that include Pecan, Cypress, Oak fruit trees and backs up to a reserve with view and privacy. A house like no other and no other compares!
