You’d think having a private peninsula would appeal to people looking for seclusion, but this Lake George estate is geared for the gracious host who’s ready to throw a serious lakeside party. The four-bedroom Tudor-style house is nearly ninety years old and is full of original architectural details like stone mullions and steep beamed ceilings. But when it comes to inviting friends and family over, it’s the outdoor spaces that seal the deal. The 1.26-acre property has a whopping 600 feet of private waterfront, as well as three outdoor dining and cooking areas, a secluded spot to fish and swim, a massive five-slip boathouse, and a carriage house that boasts amenities like a 2,000-bottle wine cellar and home theater. What’ll all this cost you? $7.4 million.
The main house, built in 1926, has been restored and updated by the current owners, combing Tudor architecture and Adirondack style.
Large windows on all sides brighten up the living room, and a gas fireplace serves as the focal point of the large space. The den across the hall provides another stone fireplace and even more sitting space.
Between the living room and the den is a combined kitchen and dining room. The kitchen contains dual islands and many wooden cabinets, perfect for accommodating large numbers of guests. Eating doesn’t have to be confined to the dining room, however; there are three separate outdoor and indoor dining and cooking areas.
Each of the main house’s four bedrooms boast incredible views of the Adirondack mountains, but in the master bedroom suite, you can enjoy those views a lot better from the private terrace. The master bath features dual vanities and plenty of cabinet room.
The carriage house and boat house are new editions to the property, but the owners took care to have them resemble the historic look of the main house. The gorgeous carriage house is full of perks, including a 2,000-bottle wine cellar and a great room with a gas fireplace, bar, and 120″ drop-down movie screen. Part of the carriage house can be converted into a fifth bedroom if desired.
Nestled in Cramer Cove is the boat house. Its Tudor facade gives way to a sleeker, more modern interior that can hold five boat slips. Its cove location also makes it perfect for swimming, fishing, or enjoying the mountain views on the upper deck.
