Situated on 2.81 acres is a stunning lakefront property on Shreveport’s beloved Cross Lake. Sunrises and sunsets on the lake are sure to enthrall homeowners with Louisiana’s natural beauty just steps from the back patio on this recreational body of water.
Custom built to maximize gorgeous lake views, the home offers plenty of space with over 7,000 square feet to enjoy family spaces as well as allowing guests to mix and mingle easily through the open floor plan orspill over onto the expansive flagstone back patio.
Using fine materials and expert craftsmanship, 6915 North Lakeshore Drive was custom built in 2010 and designed as a family home with several gathering spaces focusing on the tranquility of the lake at every glance.
The very private home is fully fenced with an iron gated entryway and manicured grounds to stroll as well as a jogging path around the property. The grounds include a 1,100 square foot fishing cabin for overflow guests, can easily be used as multi-generational living with college aged children or aging parents. Enjoy relaxing on the screened porch for private time, yet still be close to the main home when ready to visit the coffee bar located inside the main home’s kitchen.
For those working remotely, the benefit of several office spaces allows for executives to work quietly surrounded by lake views, while the children’s craft room upstairs is easily converted into a classroom for those homeschooling during current times.
Neutral paint colors pairs beautifully with the hardwood flooring and stone surfaces used throughout creating a seamless transition from room to room with the open floorplan.
Upstairs spaces are oversized, each with incredible lake views. Currently, one large space is a game room with a full bath where children can play with friends, but this space can easily be converted into a media room. The craft room is available for all projects and hobbies while enjoying the natural lighting from oversized windows.
Working out has been made easy in the personal home gym with special consideration for the dancers in the family with floor to ceiling mirrored wall and ballet bar in the exercise room. Each space offers beautiful lake views from the second story.
With two fireplaces to enjoy indoors during the cooler times of the year, one being a dramatic stone fireplace in the living room and the other found in the lake room.
The home chef will be thrilled with the top-of-the-line appliances such as the Miele steam oven as well as commercial grade gas cooktop. When entertaining, the oversized pantry serves as a plating space for large gatherings with a pass-through window into the kitchen for quick serving.
The beauty of the lake is best experienced from the outdoor living space of the property. The covered porch provides shade and a quiet spot to enjoy the views as well as the perfect spot to watch the children while they frolic in the saltwater pool. When the day is done, gather around the firepit for s’mores while taking in the beauty that is a Cross Lake sunset.
