2716 New York Route 8, Lake Pleasant, NY
This is a unique offering of a historic, Gilded Age Adirondack lakefront camp situated elegantly on picturesque Lake Pleasant in the heart of the Adirondack Park of Upstate New York. This seasonal 5.9-acre property with 375 feet of waterfront boasts a circa 1900, 1,500 sqft. lakefront home, with 4 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, as well as a circa 1930, 2,100 sqft. main house, with 6 bedrooms and 2 full baths, situated just behind and slightly further up the gradual hill.
Both houses possess beautiful porches, with views of the property and water, providing sanctuary and a setting to muse and relax. Both houses have gorgeous original masonry fireplaces, traditionally rustic bedrooms perfectly in tune with the period, and warm and inviting great rooms. The attention to detail by the original builders, masons and local artisans that built these two houses is evident throughout.
The property is of a gentle topography, with a large and accommodating dock, and plenty of sandy waterfront to swim, play and take in the 270-degree views of beautiful Lake Pleasant and the surrounding mountains. The quintessentially Adirondack town of Speculator is less than five minutes by car or boat and is filled with quaint shops, eateries and attractions for the whole family.
This is a great location that is close to area hiking, fishing, trail riding, snowmobiling, and the entire list of outdoor activities that this great region possesses. This is arguably one of Lake Pleasant’s most desirable locations and the ideal Adirondack lakefront camp.
