It is massive, perfectly positioned in a tremendous setting and benefits from the best location.

Access is restricted to entrance by the stone fence with its wrought iron gate. To the north and south, the Estate is surrounded by water. To the west, it adjoins a gated and fenced property.<br><br>(17)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Entry: You enter through a wrought iron gate from the road that provides the eastern boundary to Cumbuco's Lagoa de Banana. You continue through a densely wooded area for about 100 yards. As you emerge from under the canopy of trees, the vista opens to a broad expanse of lawn with water on both sides and the imposing massive estate home ahead.<br><br>(18)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Entry and main living areas: You enter through a stained glass double front door on the upper level (second floor) into a cathedral ceiling foyer connecting a large living room and dining area.&nbsp;<br><br>(19)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Rear veranda.

Now the kids are grown and gone and the owner and his wife rarely use the lake front house. It has seen little use in the past 10 years but has retained a full time live-in caretaker.<br><br>(27)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Exempt from annual real estate taxes: Since the land is certified rural it enjoys exemption from annual real estate tax.<br><br>PROPERTY METRICS &amp; LEGAL<br><br>(28)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Land<br><br>(a)&nbsp;Total area: 6.7 hectares/16.547 acres per survey<br><br>(b)&nbsp;Lake waterfront: 726 meters/2,382' est.&nbsp;<br><br>(c)&nbsp;Shape: Irregular rectangle with water front on both north and south sides plus private peninsula<br><br>(29)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Home<br><br>(a)&nbsp;Style: Brazilian traditional one-story<br><br>(b)&nbsp;Area under roof: 1,100 SM/11,840 SF<br><br>(c)&nbsp;Year built: Approximately 1971<br><br>(d)&nbsp;Construction: Native stone and brick with ceramic floors<br><br>(e)&nbsp;Roof: Tile<br><br>(f)&nbsp;HVAC: None<br><br>(g)&nbsp;Condition: Below average to fair<br><br>(h)&nbsp;Configuration: 8 bedrooms/7 baths including quarters<br><br>(i)&nbsp;Bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms: 4<br><br>(j)&nbsp;Support rooms: walk-in pantry, service area, storage room, maid's suite/quarters<br><br>(30)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Other improvements: Pool with paved deck, brick barbeque, docks and decks<br><br>(31)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Flood risks: No current flood risks<br><br>(32)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Environmental issues: None known, not in the APPA (environmental protected zone)<br><br>(33)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Water: Very deep underground water<br><br>(34)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Title: Clear with no liens<br><br>(35)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Taxes: None<br><br>EXISTING ARCHITECTURAL SITE PLAN<br><br>(36)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Overview: 80 unit complex. 20 chalet style structures with four 90.4 SM/970 SF units.<br><br>(37)<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Chalet details: 13 Chalets with 52 water front units and 7 Chalets with 28 water view units.
