New Price! Welcome to a one-of-a-kind LAKEFRONT home!! This home was an original 1-story Birchwood ranch that was COMPLETELY REBUILT w/ over $600k in improvements (only foundation & 1st-floor floor joists are original), adding a 2-car garage & 2nd story addition making it one of the largest lakefront homes in the area w/ nearly 5,000 sq ft including 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths & lots of entertainment space. Not all lakefront locations are equal & this one is far superior to most as it is situated on one of the deepest lakes in the heart of Medford & a short 6-house walk to the very popular & exclusive Birchwood Lakes beach. This lakefront location boasts 6+ feet deep water off the dock & 15+ feet in the middle (w/ no tree stumps). This makes it the perfect location for more than just the amazing lake views, you can enjoy real lake life: swimming, various watercraft, fishing & more! Start on the large, inviting cedar front porch & enter the double front doors into an open foyer. To the right you will find a BRAND NEW great room w/ a vaulted ceiling w/ skylights, wood beams, 2-story cultured stone wood burning fireplace w/ Tennessee sandstone mantle & hearth, oversized, custom sliding door looking out to lake, custom built bar w/ granite counter, bar sink, wine refrigerator & dishwasher, wood-look tile (very durable especially w/ wet feet), 3 TV’s included w/ custom sound system & full bathroom. There is potential for an in-law suite in this space.

The large formal dining room is just off the kitchen w/ more doors to the back deck & the family room offers another area for entertaining or TV watching. If space is what you need, the 2400 sq ft 2nd floor presents a spacious open multi-purpose area (office, home gym, playroom, media area, in-law suite, etc.) looking out to the lake. The main bedroom suite has lake views & walk-in closet as well as a renovated main bathroom w/ a luxurious soaking tub, dual sinks, tile flooring, separate commode & shower room.
