201 Swartekill Road, Highland, NY, 12528
    • Remarks: Step into a historic storybook just 90 minutes from NYC. Enter this grand 164-acre estate complete with your own 25 acre Private Lake through the gated, winding driveway complete with mature foliage and stonework. The stage is set as soon as you approach the garage with its arched doors and ivy wrapped façade. Follow the stone path that leads to the main residence where you are greeted with majestic views of the gardens and the spectacular lake. The main residence offers regal stone and woodwork throughout, as well as many historic touches. There is plenty of room to relax with two primary bedroom suites and three guest bedrooms. Go back in time as you sit around the massive stone fireplace in the living room which dates back to the original construction of the estate. A lofted entertainment room has been added to ensure everyone has a place to enjoy. Most of the rooms in the residence have outdoor access to either a stone patio overlooking the lake, or a mahogany, covered porch with stone arches to take in the gardens. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces are built to entertain and there is even a remote-control waterfall across the lake to add to the outdoor ambiance. The tremendous kitchen will ensure no one misses the feast and has modern amenities including a Wolf range, two paneled Sub-Zero refrigerators, wine cooler, built-in ice maker, and a walk-in pantry to keep the home well stocked. Enjoy a meal overlooking the lake in the original dining area, on the lakeside deck, or have a larger gathering in the formal dining room which can accommodate up to 24 people. From the kitchen, a lakeside deck with stone pathway leads to a 3-bedroom historic boathouse. Here, you will be marveled at the history and craftsmanship of a time past. Imagine docking your boat at your very own, private boathouse and relaxing by the outdoor fireplace under the stone portico, with a meal made on the built-in Viking grill. From here continue through your own world and find another enchanted path that takes you to a one-bedroom cottage; currently being used as a lakeside game room. After a joyous day out on the lake, what better way to end it than with a game of billiards? If you need more room for your guests, there is yet another adorable one-bedroom lakeside cottage. The on-site caretaker keeps this immaculate property up to the expected standards and lives in a separate 2-bedroom home with additional storage barn. The gorgeous, timeless barn provides storage space for all of the estate needs. This property truly feels like a private nature preserve offering seclusion and the feeling of an endless vacation. The lake not only provides spectacular swimming and fishing in the crystal-clear water, but one can also enjoy any type of motorized watercraft they choose. This is a unique feature as many lakes are not large enough to accommodate this type of activity or have restrictions on propulsion type. Words and pictures alone cannot fully describe this one-of-a-kind estate; this unique destination must be experienced to be appreciated.
