Undoubtedly, a home is a place to relax and escape from the everyday stresses of the outside world. While a home is typically viewed as a retreat, it can also be designated as a spot to gather and entertain guests. Luckily, this particular home, located in Newport Landing on Bennington Lake, beautifully serves both purposes and more.
In fact, nothing says “ideal entertaining space” quite like a 9,500 sq. ft. property situated on an acre of land with a lakefront view. Located in the Bennington school district, this modern five bedroom and bathroom property presents all the amenities that lake life has to offer, including fishing, boating, water skiing, swimming, and spectacular views. Just a few miles from the town of Bennington and 20 minutes from midtown Omaha, the community provides a 280-acre lake in a tranquil setting. This specific home is not only perfectly positioned for views of the cove, but it also offers a more private location.
“This home truly has the best of both worlds,” said Michael Maley, realtor for Berkshire Hathaway. “It’s an entertainer’s dream palace, but it can also be a great family home, and a fun place to raise children.”
The property’s curb appeal renders a great first impression with its meticulous landscaping and contemporary exterior. On the inside, the current homeowner recently renovated and installed all new upgrades throughout the home, which was originally built in 2009.
While the home is expansive, it also breathes comfortability with its soaring 22-foot ceilings and open concept. As soon as entering the home, visitors land their gaze on a breathtaking view of the water, which stretches throughout the main floor. Various unique textures and finishes radiate style and charm. The main living area, which is equipped with a full bar, is a sweeping space that features two sitting areas, a powder bathroom, a dining area, and a kitchen outfitted with high-end appliances, two sinks, and an abundance of storage. Additionally, just off the kitchen is a substantial walk-out Trex deck featuring a cedar ceiling and stone columns.
Inside the master suite, a picturesque view of the lake, paired with an oversized master bath, deems the space an elegant and comfortable haven. Furnished with a freestanding tub, large steam shower with multiple shower heads, three sinks, and a large closet, this master bath provides both
convenience and luxury.
On the other end of the first floor lie a spacious home theater, two large spare bedrooms, which feature a Jack and Jill bathroom, and a conveniently placed mudroom and laundry area that lead out to the attached three-car garage, stylishly equipped with glass doors.
The upstairs floor offers an additional bedroom with an attached bathroom and two extensive walk-in closets. A roomy loft area also overlooks the main floor, providing another grand view of the lake.
The lower level consists of a second kitchen and bar with uniquely designed lower level seating for comfort, a large bedroom and walk-in closet, full bathroom, an oversized living area and billiards room, and two additional rooms perfect for a fitness studio, home theater, or separate entertaining space. An outdoor kitchen and patio area can also be accessed from downstairs, offering extended space for hosting. Additionally, touch pads throughout the rooms of the property allow users to easily adjust the surround sound system, media, security features, and climate control.
“When it comes to incredible views, privacy, convenience, and space for entertaining, this property lacks nothing,” Maley said. “Plus, its location inside a highly sought after lake community only adds to its appeal.”
