Location: 604 North Lake Blvd, Mahopac
Description: A little slice of paradise in Putnam County, this incredible estate dates back to 1885 and was the first home built on Lake Mahopac. With a Federal design and panoramic views from nearly every room, the property channels the glamour of early industrialist living in the Hudson Valley.
Inside, eight bedrooms on the second and third floors are ready to welcome family, friends, and weekend guests. Bathrooms are just as ample, with eight bathrooms and one powder room scattered throughout. Interior aesthetics are open and airy, thanks to features like high ceilings and expansive hallways. The kitchen is a dream for aspiring chefs and at-home entertainers and boasts top-of-the-line culinary technology like SubZero appliances, a Viking range and oven, and two Miele dishwashers.
Outside, a six-car garage offers all-weather parking for residents and their guests. The home makes the most of its picturesque location along Lake Mahopac and features multiple balconies and terraces with views of the waterfront. At the edge of the sprawling yard, a 100-plus foot dock connects directly to the lake, while a heated Gunite pool and spa is a dream for homeowners who love to swim laps.
Asking price: $6,500,000
Selling points: To keep up with the times, the historic residence was renovated between 2014 and 2016 to offer the most luxurious creature comforts on the market. In addition to the pool and decked-out kitchen, the residence also hides a wine cellar and a home theater, along with a gym, an outdoor kitchen, an elevator, and a mudroom.
Geographically, it’s an easy drive to Carmel and Mahopac proper, where community restaurants, the Putnam County Golf Course, and Fahnestock State Park provide year-round entertainment. Of course, with a movie theater and more at home, this Mahopac Lake estate is the type of place you never want to leave.
