Great Camp Era Peninsula Property, 155 Crane Point
Rarely does an historic Adirondack estate of such grandeur and old world provenance become available. Just such a time and opportunity has come, as one of the region's most significant and extraordinary waterfront estates in the central region of the great Adirondack Park of Upstate New York has become available.
Enter the estate known as Crane Point, an entire peninsula on one of the cleanest lakes in the entire Northeast, Blue Mountain Lake. Set spectacularly on 13 largely wooded and private acres, with over 1,500 feet of water frontage on one of the Adirondacks' most desirable lakes, the almost 9,000 square foot home sits perched above the waster with beautiful lake and mountain views. Built in 1928 in the Gilded Age, this unique manor home was constructed in the architectural vein of the storied Adirondack Great Camps of the late nineteenth century and early twentieth.
With period details such as wainscotting throughout, a beautiful stone hearth as the focal point of communal living in the massive Great Room, to the woodworking and craftsman accents throughout, this home has character and story like few others. Situated at the end of a long, meandering private driveway that takes you through the mature forest to the grand home, you are immediately transported back in time as you arrive, to a time where life was lived more slowly. More intentionally. Where you had time to breath the clear mountain air, read to your heart's content, and spend an afternoon paddling and exploring the many bays of the lake.
When you enter the home you step into the grand Great Room, which is impressive in every sense. The ceiling height, to the windows framing an amazing view of the lake, to the stone and wood accents, it harkens perfectly to Adirondack living of yesteryear. The first floor has several living spaces, 2 kitchen areas, several bedrooms, and porches and decks that allow easy outdoor living and entertaining. Upstairs, you will find the balance of the 8 total bedrooms, with plenty of closet space and privacy.
The home viewed from the water is nothing short of majestic. The property has a period-accurate, open-air boathouse with room for boats, canoes, kayaks and storage of lake equipment. There is a seasonal game room with large porch set just behind the boathouse. There is a series of outbuildings on the property, for storage of equipment, wood, etc. There is also a separate guest house or caretakers home, that could be used as additional living space.
The property sits just below The Adirondack Experience, the original Adirondack Museum on the mountain above. Just a short walk t the Blue Mountain trailhead, or the village where there are a handful of quaint shops, stores and places to experience small town Adirondack life in all of its character.
This property is private and secluded, yet accessible to major Northeast metro areas by plane, train or automobile. 5 Hours from New York City or Boston, less than 2 hours from Albany and Saratoga Springs in the Capital Region, make this property within reach, yet still comfortably away from the rigors and demands of modern life.
