Built in 1998 by Steve Roberts, the lovely home at 12218 Creek Forest Drive has 6,973 square feet with a fabulous floor plan that includes four bedrooms, six full bathrooms and one half-bath, four living areas, and a three-car garage. Mark Cain and Susie Swanson, top producers with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, are offering the property at $1,895,000. They invite prospective buyers to tour it from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

The grand entry highlights a winding staircase and flows into the two-story living room with sweeping views of the pool and private lake with fountains. The formal dining room is generous in size and has an adjacent butler’s pantry.
