Luxury on a lake - enjoy sunrises and sunsets, wildlife, boating, and deck life!

This custom designed renovation is a clean, contemporary, upscale 4 bedroom / 4 bath, 3,400 square foot beauty of a lake house, completed in late 2014 and now available for those who demand a quality home-away-from-home for business or pleasure. Free high-speed wi-fi is included so you can stay connected with all of your mobile devices.

The space
We’ve hosted people from many walks of life since we started renting out this property. Getting to know a little about our guests before booking helps us feel comfortable about who will be staying in our home and has actually been one of the most interesting parts of the process. So, if you don’t mind sharing a few general tidbits like where you're from, what line of work you’re in, what brings you to Shreveport, etc., we’d love to hear a little about you and your group when you submit your booking request… Thanks!

WE DO NOT ALLOW PETS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, even if they are cute, well-trained, hairless, or will "just be visiting for a little while" with local friends or family. Violation of this rule will result in a $500.00 ASSESSMENT for extra cleaning fees and rule violation penalty and represents grounds for immediate eviction with no refund. Though we are pet-lovers ourselves, we had to impose this strict rule in consideration of our other guests, our housekeeping staff, and our own family members, some of whom have severe pet-related allergies. Accordingly, there will be no exceptions made. Thank you for your understanding and compliance.

Description:
Expansive glass doors in the dining area and master bedroom are fitted with remote-controlled shades and offer a beautiful view of Cross Lake. The gourmet kitchen has a wonderful 4 burner 48” Wolf stove (gas) with a double griddle and two convection ovens (electric), an oversized Wolf vent hood, an oversized chef’s pantry, separate, full-size Subzero refrigerator and freezer, a separate soft-crunch (Sonic) ice-maker, a quiet Bosch dishwasher, a motion-activated (touchless) faucet and a foot (toe) activated disposal.

The gorgeous waterfall-style island between the kitchen and den is built with custom stone and has 3 bar stools. A new dining room table that seats 10 was added in August 2019.

The den features a glass-enclosed linear gas fireplace and hidden audio-visual storage area, making for a great entertainment space. The 65" 4K LED TV is the only television in the house, and is equipped with Xfinity cable, Netflix and a DVD player.

The master suite features a huge bedroom with king bed and spacious en suite with oversized tub, multi-head shower and L-shaped closet that is to die for. Each of the other three bedrooms has its own job-built tile glass-enclosed showers, custom stone countertops or sleek pedestal sink, and high-end fixtures.

Hot water for the entire house is unlimited with a gas-fired tankless water heater. Lighting throughout is high efficiency, low maintenance LED cans or fluorescent. Sleek, modern, ceiling fans are in each living area.

The double decks on the back of the house as well as the two-slip covered boat dock and pier are all built with light-colored maintenance-free aluminum decking that is almost always cool enough to walk on with bare feet. Deck and dock both have see-through cable railing for unencumbered views. And the outside shower with hot and cold water is great for cooling off or enjoying a fresh rinse after a day in or on the lake.

Guest access
The entire house, yard, pier/dock, and 2 boat slips are at your disposal during your stay.

If you like spending time on the water and enjoy viewing or photographing wildlife in a refuge-like setting, you'll enjoy this house. My daughter and I took all the wildlife photos in this listing from locations on the property with a modest zoom lens as noted on each picture. There is almost always some bird and turtle activity going on at the house. In addition to the wildlife captured in our photographs, we've also seen a bald eagle and several other species I've never seen before. I can sit on the upper deck for hours...

One of my favorite wildlife highlights is when the hundreds of white pelicans (and friends) herd the baitfish in toward shore to feed (seasonal). Families of mallard ducks often swim up and down the shoreline (seasonal). You never know what you're going to see here!

If fishing is your thing, the lake has bass (and tournaments) but probably has more catfish. So far, my father-in-law holds the record for most catfish caught in one day off our dock. They were very tasty!

We're just half a mile from a nice public (free) boat launch and the Shreveport Yacht Club, so bring your jet-skis, bass boat, or Hobie-cat and have some fun on the water! Be sure to register with the Cross Lake Patrol if you're bringing your own boat or jet skis.

And if a rendezvous with Lady Luck is your thing, we're less than 15 minutes from the Shreveport casinos! The Cross Lake Contemporary is a great place to come home to after cashing in your winnings!

Location

Shreveport, Louisiana, United States

The house is very quiet even though it is located close to the road. There is not a lot of traffic, the house is well insulated, and most of the living area (all but 1 bedroom) is on the lake side of the house. The neighbors to the east only use the house as an occasional weekend retreat - and they are quiet when they are there. To our west, we have no immediate neighbors, just the yard for our property and a bridge over a waterway. Just beyond the bridge is a reception hall called Valencia, and they occasionally have a wedding / reception on the weekend - I'd say once every month or two in the summer - and those typically only have a little music for an hour or so (which has never bothered us).
