Rustic Lake House Retreat

Venturing to the western edge of Sioux Falls leads you to a quiet cul-de-sac located in a picturesque, newly developed neighborhood. The home at 204 S. Boathouse Circle, in particular, stands out for its contemporary rustic charm, classic elegance and ideal location along the waters of secluded Cherry Lake. Built by NRG Homes, this immaculate single-family ranch walkout features 6,900 square feet of finished living space with 233 square feet to finish off, five bedrooms, six-plus baths, a pool/hot tub, home theatre, in-floor heating (including the massive garage), Crestron smart home technology and SIP panel construction for maximum energy efficiency.

Stepping out onto the driveway, your jaw drops at the smoky grey exterior with stone accents, white pillars and walnut brown wood gables for extra architectural character. Crossing the threshold to the interior, you can’t help but look up at the 26-foot vaulted ceiling and wood beams. The natural light floods through the 24- foot windows with sliding doors to the elevated 90-foot stamped concrete patio, which displays spectacular views of the glistening private lake. Returning indoors, the open concept floor plan provides a warm, intimate setting all while incorporating a cozy stone fireplace and divine light fixtures. Kitchen enthusiasts rejoice with the double ovens, ebony stove hood, pendant lighting, massive island, Cambria countertops (utilized throughout the home) and walk-in pantry.

Wandering toward the back of the home, you will find an office space (or potential library) and the owner’s suite with double sinks, dual showerheads, large walk-in closet and access to the upper patio. The guest suite is located on the opposite side of the home complete with a walk-in closet, full bath and access to the patio. Off the kitchen is a powder bath with whimsical, floral wallpaper and yet another ornate light fixture. Moving on past the kitchen is a main floor laundry space with a sink. In the same vicinity is a generous mudroom filled with plenty of storage. Connecting to the home is the four-stall, massive garage, which can fit up to seven vehicles!

Returning inside, descend to the lower level via the stairs or elevator. Immediately to the left is an adorable cottagelike children’s play area nestled under the stairs with a chalkboard – perfect for the kids or grandkids! In the main space, an in-home theatre steals the show, complete with a projection screen for the ultimate film experience. Down the hallway are two additional bedrooms with Jack and Jill bathroom. Back in the main entertaining space is a bar and kitchen area. To the right is what will be a gaming corner where pinball machines and other vintage games will be displayed. Toward the back is a modest exercise space with an additional one-stall garage.

Step out to the expansive terraced backyard via the glass sliding doors or the separate pool entrance/exit (complete with shower, washer/dryer and pool lockers) for a spectacular outdoor experience. Enjoy a dip in the in-ground pool and/or hot tub or lounge around either the propane or wood-burning firepit down below along the water’s edge. The highlight though is the ability to do all of this while gazing at the stunning scenery of the Cherry Lake area.

With the grandeur of the vaulted ceilings, abundance of natural light, opulent living space and outdoor paradise, NRG Homes has crafted a magnificent contemporary rustic lake home that’s also safe and energy-efficient. The old world charm of the wood beams, unique light fixtures and hard surface flooring throughout combine with the amenities and then some of the modern world to create the lap of luxury.
