Fans of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” may be going through withdrawals since the season finale a few weeks ago, but never fear — we have a solution for that!
Take a quick video tour of 211 Lakeside Drive and you’ll see what we mean. This is a whole lot of house and a whole lot of nostalgia, but with a little work and a bit of love, it could easily be the home you’ve been dreaming of.
The location in Walhalla is near perfect since it’s right across from Sertoma Field, but you’d never know it looking in the yard. In fact, the backyard feels a little bit more like walking into “The Secret Garden” rather Chip and Joanna Gaines’ latest project. (If we’re taking bets, my money is on Joanna removing the wall between the breakfast area and dining room to create a more open space. She’d also have Clint make a giant farm table to seat 12 to fill the space.)
The main floor features a formal dining room and living room, as well as a breakfast nook and more casual den with a fireplace that connects to the kitchen. The giant bay window is the perfect place to curl up and enjoy a good book, get some work done, or take a little cat nap in the sunshine.
The kitchen itself is a fantastic setup for cooking meals for two or twelve, and the bar means impatient mouths can eat as soon as supper is ready.
The quirks of this house on Lakeside Drive are what make it feel like home. From the folding doors that separate the hallway to the four-piece Master Bath that’s accessible from the hallway to keep guests out of the bedroom, this home is built with entertaining friends and family in mind.
Look past the cosmetic updates and you’ll see large bedrooms with great closet space and storage. The Jack-and-Jill bathroom keeps kids’ messes out of sight when guests visit.
Downstairs you’ll find another living area with a brick fireplace. This space would make a great man cave, playroom, rec room or could even be set up as guest quarters. There’s additional daylight basement space that’s unfinished and could be completed to fit your specifications. Additional bedrooms, a media room or office would be awesome options, especially for someone who works from home. With a private entrance from the back patio, clients could come and go without setting foot in the main part of the house.
There’s plenty of square footage in this house as it is, but the potential to expand and customize this home in a location that’s walking distance to Walhalla’s annual Bierfest are unmatched — especially at this price. If you want to be in Walhalla, 211 Lakeside Drive is a home you don’t want to miss!
