Admit it. Last Sunday you donned shorts to do yardwork while “Lovely Day” blasted on repeat. You thought briefly about applying sunscreen, but, hey – Vitamin D.

An endless spring is definitely on your mind, soon to be followed by an endless summer. You’re going to need the perfect place to enjoy them. May we suggest 1952 Cherokee Trace on Cedar Creek Lake’s western shore? Janice Haney with Team Cedar Creek Lake has it listed for $889,000.

It’s just a little over an hour from Dallas in Tool, TX, and offers everything a lake house should – and lots, lots more. Two-and-a-half lots to be exact (.69 acres), plus unimpeded lake views and multiple outdoor spaces from which to enjoy the lake life: 200 feet of wide-open water with a seawall, a multi-tiered deck spanning the entire width of the house, waterside seating, outdoor dining, and a fire pit conversation area. There’s also a large boathouse with an upper deck and a completely covered 28-foot boat slip and twin personal watercraft slip. Can you say “party all the time”?

Realizing some may be interested in the inside as well – you’ll need somewhere to brush your teeth after all – here are the details. The updated 1971 home, which encompasses 2,791 square feet (per building plan), features five bedrooms, including a four-bed bunk room, four full baths, two-car garage, and a HUGE waterside living-kitchen-dining area with a river-rock fireplace and custom bar. Can you say “party all the time”… again?

And when/if the party is over, you can easily retire to the master suite with a spacious bath and built-in desktop with expansive water views. It’s a great space where you can pretend to get stuff done until you’re ready to resume relaxing and playing.
