It has an infinity edge pool. It overlooks a lake and a waterfall. And it's about a half-mile from downtown Birmingham.

This contemporary-style, four-bedroom, 5,214-square-foot home is listed for $4.9 million.

"Rarely in my career have I been in a home that captures so much of an aesthetic and quality," said real estate agent Renee Lossia-Acho of KW Domain Birmingham.

This 4-bedroom, 8-bath Quarton Lake house in Birmingham is on the market for $4.995 million

Nestled on a quarter-acre lot on Waterfall Lane and the edge of Quarton Lake, the house has glass walls that provide a panoramic view of the water.

"It's a walkable distance from downtown Birmingham, but when you enter the home and look out the back, the views of the water just make you almost feel like you're floating down a river," she said.

Built in 2015, it has five bathrooms and three half-baths. It also has fireplaces in the great room, master bedroom and finished basement, which has walkout access to the yard. 

The home at 118 Waterfall Lane, Birmingham, is 5,300-square-feet

The home also has an attached three-car garage.
