This gracious home boasts one-of-a-kind views of enchanting Tuxedo Lake and its splendor. Located on the west side of the lake, it offers sunshine all day. A short walk down terraced lawns leads to 125' of lake frontage with a permanent brick and mortar dock. The house is built on the formal gardens of the adjacent estate and was renovated in the late 1990s. Much of the old world charm was recaptured including a long lily pond with fountains, tea house, cutting gardens built against a beautiful stone backdrop and several potting sheds. Within this home, function and beauty are thoughtfully merged. Upon entry - which leads into a large living room with a fireplace - you are greeted with a breathtaking view of the sparkling water of Tuxedo Lake. An open floor plan kitchen features two islands with room for a farm table. For more formal occasions, the intimate dining room with wet bar faces the lake as does the adjacent study with stone fireplace. The exquisite private master suite sits on the main level at the northerly side of the house with gorgeous lake views. The other 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths are a few stairs away with easy access to a large recreation room on the top floor which is ideal for a pool table, media room, office, or can be easily converted into another bedroom with bathroom.
