We are certainly smitten with this c.1917 Craftsman-style cottage in the Mahopac Point community, on a peninsula in Lake Mahopac. With water on nearly all sides, this is quite a romantic venue for this ship-shape four-bedroom property. Nearby neighbors include an actual private island featuring a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed compound on Petra Island (read more about that here on Upstater).
The 1,300-square-foot interior includes exposed wood beams, stone living room fireplace, sunroom dining room, and four bedrooms, making this a true family retreat with water views from a multitude of windows. Speaking of which, the screened-in porch provides still more room to bask in the almost-outdoors, and the half-acre lot comes with a stone terrace with dramatic lake vistas, as well as a seasonal guest cottage. Forget your lawnmower; the yard is forested.
Property includes deeded lake rights located across the street. There, you can swim, dock your boats, and launch your kayaks. Dreamy lake house cottage dreams achieved, all an hour from NYC!
