Low Country – those two words stir the imagination and inspire visions of just how and where you want to live. This prized architectural style is timeless and steeped in the beauty of its simplicity while maintaining a casual elegance and grace. Welcome to 329 Vale Drive which joyfully embodies the character of this distinctive coastal design with its abundance of windows, large shade porches and singularly thoughtful detail. With a lakefront location embraced by a preserve behind it, there is a powerful sense of privacy and calm amidst this natural backdrop clad in various shades of green.

Take in the lovely lines of the house as you approach the deep covered porch – a sweet spot to watch the sun turn pink and orange at sunset. A wide entry foyer with curved ceiling has a dedicated office on the left but your gaze will be pulled towards the wall of glass framing the water and tree canopy across the living room and past the expansive screened lakeside lanai. Dining, kitchen and living flow together and out to the screened living/dining room where a fully equipped outdoor kitchen will make al fresco meals a regular event.

Owners’ quarters plus an en-suite guest room adjacent to 1-car garage and a separate 3/4 bath for day and dinner guests are on the north side of the house. Overlooking the lake, the main bedroom is a peaceful retreat. 2 outfitted closets keep things organized while the bathroom is your personal spa with a bath lover’s tub and big shower. 1st floor guest suite is always welcome and extended stay guests will be very happy.

Each room is generously proportioned so everyone you love can gather comfortably while you begin creating memorable moments from the start. The kitchen is an oasis for people who love to cook. Huge island seats 4-6, double Thermador wall ovens and gas cooktop make multitasking a snap, rich in cabinets and counters for storage and prep and the hidden pantry is a delightful surprise. Chicago brick floor in a herringbone pattern adds a whimsical flavor to the mud room and laundry/craft room by the stairway adjacent to the 2-car garage entry.

Upstairs 2 bedrooms share hall bath, with 3rd bedroom offering another en-suite and a sunny family/media room for movie night.

With so many welcoming places to sit, the screened room offers serious competition. Stroll down to the fire-pit on the bank of the lake and watch the moon rise over the water. Palencia offers an enviable lifestyle with outstanding amenities. Welcome home…
