This cottage on the lake sits on 1.5 acres with gorgeous water views. The main house has over 19,000 square feet and remains a shell, which creates the opportunity to finish this home to your and your family's specifications. The main house has been designed for 6 bedrooms, and each bedroom has at least 1 balcony and beautiful views of Lake Mahopac, as well as Petra Island - a heart shaped, private island with 2 Frank Lloyd Wright designed houses on it. In addition to the main house there is also a 4,000 square foot tree house which has room for 6 cars or boats on the ground floor and ample room for fun and recreation on the second floor. Enjoy playing basketball, or relaxing by the fire, or having a great party with all of your friends and family - the entire treehouse is surrounded by decking. The main house also has garage parking for 4 cars, meaning you can store up to 10 cars (or boats) at this property at any time. But perhaps most attractive of all is the ability to enjoy one of the premiere properties on Lake Mahopac, which is a spring-fed lake dotted with islands just an hour from Manhattan. The lake is surrounded by beautiful private homes and is an understated alternative to the Hamptons. It is not only closer to the city and easier to get to / from, but many celebrities and titans of industry have their weekend and summer homes here with the greatest luxury of all: privacy.
