Elegant Home in Lake Woodrail

1001 Lake Point Lane


Entering this grand home in southwest Columbia, you find yourself in a spacious two-level entryway with a formal staircase leading up to the upper level. The space is rich, with hardwood floors, a grand three-tiered central chandelier, and crown molding. To the left and right of the front door you will find matching coat closets.  

To your right you will find the formal dining room, with large picture windows and crown molding. To the left of the entryway you will find a formal parlor room with carpeted floors, massive picture windows, crown molding, and glass double doors leading into the family room.

Through the glass double doors, you find yourself in a spacious family room with a central brick faced and wood trimmed fireplace. Across from the central fireplace, you will find a full wet bar thoughtfully recessed past the boundary walls of the family room, allowing for easy flow. The wet bar is complete with a small sink, bar top with seating for three, room for a mini fridge, tons of cabinet space, and a fabulous built in wine rack.

The family room leads to the amazing screened in balcony. The screened in balcony allows for tons of indoor/outdoor space, and provides a breathtaking view of the woods and the lake. This home is ideally situated, allowing for beautiful views of the lake year round and a fabulous amount of privacy provided by the richly wooded landscape. The screened in balcony has a door leading to stairs down to the back yard. The balcony can also be entered via the kitchen.

In the kitchen you will find a spacious working environment, with tons of cabinet space, a stainless steel refrigerator and microwave, custom wood cabinets, electric range cook top, and elevated double oven. This kitchen is built for a busy family and features a built in desk area, a well-placed large pantry, and a great eat in kitchen area with additional seating at the bar. Following past the eat-in kitchen, you will find a large throughway leading to an informal living room with massive windows, tray ceiling, and tile floors.

Following through the informal living room, you find yourself on a small landing with the homes laundry room to your left. The laundry room has tile floors, tons of cabinet space, and a great wash sink. Following three short steps down to a second landing, you find a door on your right going out to the exterior of the home and a coat closet to your left. You will also find stairs leading down to the basement level.

The lower living room has glass double-doors leading to a charming library/study. In the library you will find tons of built in cherry wood shelves and cabinets and a marble faced fireplace. This room also has a door that leads out onto the lower level of the homes screened in porch.

Continuing down a hallway from the lower living room, you find yourself in a fabulous tall-ceiling second living room with massive windows creating a light and breezy space, which would normally be unthinkable with such a heavily wooded backyard. It is from this room that you gain access in to the partially fenced backyard, complete with a charming gazebo. From this room you also gain access to the homes second garage, a fabulous place to park a boat, camper, or a guests car.

Walking up the stairs in the main entryway, you find yourself in a short hallway with a door to your right leading to the master suite, a door in the center of the hallway leading to a full bath, and a doorway to your left leading to three bedrooms.

Entering the master suite you find yourself in a spacious room with three doors to the left hand side. The first set of double doors lead to the fabulous master bath. The master bath includes a jetted tub, double vanity, standalone shower, and separate toilet room.  The second set of double doors lead to a unique space that could be used either as a dressing room or as a nursery. This room has two doors leading to a long joined closet.  The third door leads to a massive master closet with tons of custom built-in shelving. To the right far corner of this room you will find a short door leading to additional closet space in a finished attic room.
