Reminiscent of the classic lake homes of the past, this circa 2003 Victorian is resplendent in detail. Nestled discretely in the coveted Sail Harbour neighborhood, this residence sits directly on Candlewood Lake and artfully marries impeccable design with absolute function. Designed and engineered with meticulous detail by Miriam Weinreb Lissak, Professional Member, ASID, this residence is a masterpiece to be cherished for generations. Ms. Lissak was unwavering in her commitment to quality and oversaw every aspect of the construction of the home, which received numerous design and construction awards, including the esteemed HOBI Award in 2004 for "Best New Old Home". Encompassing over 8,000 square feet of finished space on four levels, the home retains an intimate and comfortable feel. The welcoming main floor features a formal foyer with quartered oak hardwood floors laid in concentric squares. Bathed in natural light, the warm and inviting kitchen includes a counter height fireplace, an AGA stove, and beautiful lake views. The kitchen also provides the first opportunity for visitors to see the artisanal tile work that Ms. Lissak incorporated throughout the residence. The adjacent sunroom provides a sunny place for meals or games. The perfectly proportioned dining room is the perfect backdrop for holiday gatherings. A grand living room opens to the mahogany deck with one of the home's two jacuzzis, and a private paneled library with coffered ceilings is nearby. An oversized ensuite bedroom which could be a main floor master completes this level. This bedroom features the first of the home's bespoke bathrooms. Each one of the full bathrooms contains hand selected tile installations from Pratt and Larson, jetted tubs, heated floors, a towel warming drawer, and built-in wicker hampers with ventilation. Up one flight, the master suite and four additional bedrooms are found. Each bedroom instantly evokes serenity and calm, often with a dash of whimsy. Each bedroom opens to a full bath as well as a balcony. The third floor is currently used for recreation, with two additional guest rooms with a full bath. The walkout lower level offers a host of uses, including a wine cellar, craft room, laundry room, office and a gym with sauna. The three-lot compound which provides over 12 acres of use (including land under 440), feels more like a Relais and Chateaux property than a private residence. The grounds are perfectly manicured, with an abundance of specimen trees, stone paths and hidden treasures. With extensive water frontage on a quiet cove, the property includes the largest private sandy beach on the lake complete with a lit swim dock that provides mooring for two boats and numerous jet-skis, kayaks and canoes. A fire pit and second Jacuzzi are adjacent to the beach. An outdoor shower can be enjoyed as an invigorating start to the day, or after a long day of water sports. For on-land sport enthusiasts, the property also contains a tennis court, a lit basketball court, and a batting cage. Anchoring the two sport courts is a glorious gazebo which provides respite from the sun and contains another half bath. The additional two lots could be developed, or could remain integrated into the compound. Located a mere 80 minutes from New York City, this residence is truly for the most discerning buyer and will create memories for generations.
