Now This Is Luxury Lake Living in East Texas

Share News:

If you’ve ever driven on East Texas backroads, you know there are a few customs to follow. Number one, give a friendly wave to local traffic, especially cowboy hat-wearing gentlemen driving old pickup trucks. Number two, just know that Google Maps probably won’t help you here, and that’s certainly the case for getting to this east Texas luxury lake home we’re featuring today on Trust us, the two hour trip out of Dallas is worth it for this 4,858-sq-ft lodge-style lakefront property that’s up for auction by Elite Auctions later this month.

OPEN HOUSE PREVIEW | 1-4 p.m., Nov. 10-11. The auction takes place 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, with final preview on Friday, Nov. 16. Visit for pre-registration instructions and driving directions.

You’ll find peaceful landscape at 109 Penny’s Path near Marshall, Texas, where this lodge-style home is situated on a two-lot property totaling 2.84-acres. The auction lot includes this five-bedroom, five-and-half-bath home, nearly three acres of lakefront property, two-boat, covered slip dock on the water, and another lot that’s open for development or sale. Maybe it’s time to build that family compound at the lake!

“This immaculate luxury lakefront property is the ultimate escape from the ultra-busy executive lifestyle and offers pristine waterfront views and the privacy of surrounding nature,” says Elite Auctions CEO and Founder Randy Haddaway.

Built in 2006, this five-bedroom, five-and-half-bath, two-story home is located in the gated Windermere Estates, a private community with its own private lake. This home located on Penny’s Path sleeps 16 people with plenty of space to spread out and entertain guests. In fact, there’s more than 9,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space that includes the boathouse dock — where you can sit right on the water — multiple porches, outdoor dining space, and one of three living rooms.

Look real close on the far left of this photo. Is that wildlife on the water’s edge I see?

Let’s start with the main living room that feels positively Montana-esque, with a double-sided, wood-burning stone-laid fireplace that towers to the second-story loft that is railed with custom wrought-iron rails that look like stylized winter tree branches. You’ll see touches of those same branches on chandeliers and even the front gate to the home, which shows the attention to detail that was paid.

The home has beautiful Carlisle wide-plank hardwood floors and exposed cedar wood beams on the two-story ceiling. A second living space has cathedral wood ceilings with large, floor-to-ceiling windows that let light and lake views flood in.

The gourmet kitchen has a double oven, flat surface cook-top, warming drawers, granite countertops, and large picture window looking out to Lake Windermere. In fact, most every room in the house has a view of the resident-exclusive lake that’s stocked for bass fishing and hundreds of acres of woodlands for hiking, biking, and ATVing.

The view is especially gorgeous from the master suite, which is downstairs and appears as if it’s right on the water. The bathroom has a corner jetted tub, separate rainwater shower with built-in shower bench, separate toilet rooms, and huge walk-in closet with custom closet system. The other four bedroom suites have ample room for your oversized furniture, like a big, grand bed that you have to climb onto. One additional room doubles as a playroom or office space. Seriously, your guests may never want to leave here.

You’ll want to see this east Texas home for yourself. Call to schedule an appointment or join us at Open House.
