The 2016 lake season will be here before you know it. You can never plan too early for another lake season, especially if you want to be in enjoying it in your very own lake home.
Tera Miranda Shores on Grand Lake in northeastern Oklahoma is just a 2 1/2-hour drive from Kansas City, a simple drive down Interstate 49, then west on Interstate 44 until you exit on U.S. 59. Once off Interstate 44 it is an easy 15-minute drive to the lake. With Grand Lake this close and a much easier drive, what does it have to offer?
For starters, Tera Miranda Shores has been created by the visionaries who bring you Sporting KC, Loch Lloyd and The National. Tera Miranda Shores on Grand Lake has been developed for those seeking a lake experience second to none.
“We have put together a special place where you can relax and call home,” said Dale Brouk with FiveStar Lifestyles. “We have created a carefree lifestyle in a private gated community with all the amenities you would want in a lake house.”
Once you arrive and the gates close, the stress of everyday life vanishes and you begin to enjoy the amenities which include walking trails, a zero-entry pool, a children’s splash pool, children’s playground, health club and amenity building. Within a five-minute golf cart ride you can dine at one of Grand Lake’s finest casual lakefront restaurants, The Quarterdeck, or be on your boat to watch the sunset while on Grand Lake.
In addition to these amenities, Tera Miranda Shores also offers residents maintenance for their boat, a convenience store, boat ramps, on-site fueling station and 10 fully remodeled lodges so they and their guests can enjoy everything Tera Miranda has to offer.
The 1939 construction of Pensecola Dam created Grand Lake with 46,500 surface area acres providing the boater with a large main channel. This wide open channel gives the boater a sense of freedom when on the lake versus the layout of other lakes that have many coves and narrow channels. Grand Lake continues to gain in popularity for the boating enthusiasts. Brouk said it reminds him of the Lake of the Ozarks about 25 years ago.
“At Grand Lake you can enjoy the lake without any concern for over-crowding, even on holiday weekends,” he said.
Two models at Tera Miranda Shores are ready for occupancy, ranging in price from $189,900 to $299,900. If the models are not exactly what homebuyers want, they can build the home they do want and choose from several completed lots. Those who contract now to build can be in their home for the 2016 lake season.
The homes at Tera Miranda Shores have the look of Oklahoma Craftsmen architecture. Its well maintained exteriors and landscaping greet you as you arrive. You feel a level of comfort, knowing as an owner you never have to take time out of your life or weekend to mow, mulch, trim and fertilize your lawn since it is all done for you.
As you walk in the front door you will see quality throughout, the marketing team said. You will find high ceilings, large expanses of windows and efficient living spaces with the kitchen, great room and master suite on one level. The homes feature custom cabinetry, granite counter tops, hardwood floors and exquisite tile work.
It is hard to imagine leaving Tera Miranda Shores but golf enthusiasts will have to make the short 10-minute drive to Shangri-La Golf Club and Resort (www.shangrilaok.com). The resort boasts 27 championship holes, a full service clubhouse, casual and fine dining and a golf experience second to none in the Grand Lake region. If you love golf, this should be on your bucket list.
