Inspiring lake views, a first floor master suite, custom bunk room, theater, screened porch, two levels of decks with custom glass railings, and more. The lot is deep and beautifully landscaped right down to the water’s edge. The detached garage is perfect for boat and collector car storage, and the lakeside boathouse is ideal for your lake toys.

New Listing! When considering a lakefront home on Geneva, certain price points typically offer certain attributes. This is obvious. What’s also obvious is that a $2,195,000 lakefront home generally won’t offer 79′ of level frontage, nor will it offer a 3 car garage. That’s how this market would typically behave, but in the case of this South Shore lakefront, what’s typical no longer applies. With that frontage you’ll find a beautiful pier and a spacious cedar home built in 1996. There are wide water views and incredible light in the 2 story great room. Add in an upscale kitchen with Viking appliances, a large deck and patio and you’ve got yourself a rare combination. $2,195,000
Several decades ago, a Peruvian Horse enthusiast spent untold hours and uncountable dollars assembling this sportsman’s paradise. This estate consists of more than 254 acres with home, guest home, tennis court, swimming pool, and world class equestrian facilities. This is a world class country estate, just minutes from the state line. The property is rare- complete with farmlands, woodlands, and pasture; with a flowing stream winding through it all. The house is large and upgraded, the grounds immaculate. There’s a pool and tennis court, a guest cabin and more. A country estate ready for its next owner. $2,499,000
Off Market… A most remarkable estate on Geneva’s luxury lane. This Basswood property features 214′ of level south shore frontage, and 3.28 acres of lush perrenial gardens. The grand home measures more than 15,000 square feet, featuring Sherle Wagner fixtures, Gracie wallpaper, and the elevated finishes you’d expect in a home of this caliber. Built in the early 1990s, the scale and symmetry are enviable. You’ll love the lakeside pool, the seven bedroom suites, five fireplaces, 4 car garage, and well designed guest house with 3 bedrooms. This is a complete estate on a lake that rarely offers such a complete package. $8,495,000
Sold! Originally built to house the steam yacht Hathor, this boathouse has been transformed into a single family home over recent years and now makes a most lovely lakefront home. The estate, with its long wooded drive off of Snake Road, boasts 185 feet of frontage, 4.3+ acres of depth, and a 4,742 square foot house that is one of the last boathouses on Geneva Lake. Martin Ryerson was friends with Monet and the Rockefellers. He studied in Paris and London. He founded universities and civic institutions. But really he was just a guy who loved spending time at the lake, swimming off his pier. Today, you can own his boathouse. $3,895,000
