About 557 Lystra Preserve Drive

Nestled peacefully on over 10 acres of woodlands, 557 Lystra Preserve provides privacy while exuding luxury and calm. You are immediately greeted by pristine hardwood floors and detailed wainscoting in the entrance way. The formal dining room centers around a modern mantel, beneath cascading tray ceilings. Through the hall you will pass the walk-in pantry, prime for vast organization of all things meant to be tucked away. The open concept family room, kitchen and breakfast area draw natural light that showers the area throughout the day. Gleaming granite counter tops and high-end, stainless-steel appliances present any chef with their dream home kitchen. Endless counter space throughout the kitchen and butler’s pantry provides prep space for your mise en place or opportunity to creatively display all your wonderous cooking for your guests. Various seating options from the kitchen island to the breakfast area will be appreciated by all. Whether waking up with a warm cup of coffee or winding down with a glass of wine, the panoramic views will grace you with tranquility.

The well-appointed stone fireplace draws warmth into the family room, with built-in shelves awaiting photos and special pieces to display. Large arch ways lend seamless transitions from the kitchen to the family room, making entertainment an ease. Beyond the main living spaces, the first floor includes a guest bedroom with an en-suite bath, perfect for any guest to relax while visiting. A true treasure, the main-floor-master bedroom encompasses a restful air, spa-like bathroom and dreamy views.

The second floor of this home provides abundant opportunity to utilize space as is needed, with multiple bonus areas and bedrooms. Each bedroom on this floor has its own bathroom, a true luxury if ever there was one. A space being utilized as a playroom would make a wonderfully calm office space, with a window bench for those much-needed breaks. Speaking of breaks, why not become your own at-home mixologist behind your own wet bar? Adorned with granite countertops and seating for all, the bar area will soon become a gathering space for friends and family alike.

With still more multi-functional space, the second floor is home to a room any bibliophile will adore. Wall-to-wall built-in shelves, blanketed in natural light present a unique opportunity to enjoy a personal library.

While this property’s interior living spaces are vast, the outdoor spaces have been transformed into gorgeous living areas as well. A screen-in porch brings the outdoors in, while resting comfortably under a ceiling fan, providing a much-needed breeze during those dog days of summer. An expansive porch overlooking the acreage is waiting for those breezy day picnics. A few steps from the house is yet another outdoor living experience all on its own. Set upon stone, a pergola looks over a grand brick fireplace. A little too chilly to sit by a fire? Just beyond the pergola is a hot tub, ready for those snowy nights under the stars when you need to feel just a bit of luxury without the bother of leaving your home.

Set among the mature, Carolina pines, this property combines luxury and peace throughout its boundless interior and exterior living areas. A home anyone would be lucky to call their own, Lystra Preserve is waiting for its next occupants to grow within its walls and make the space their own.
