Basswood

Fontana! Welcome to a most gracious shingle style lakefront home on Fontana’s north shore. Built in 2013 to exacting standards by Orren Pickell, this lakefront estate has the style and presence that is rarely available in our market.  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. Why spend two years building when you can buy this custom home and enjoy it on day one? $7,395,000

New Listing! Remarkable Fontana estate on Geneva’s southern shore. This charming log home is part of the Clear Sky Lodge estate featuring immense wooded privacy just steps from the lake. Private pool, tennis court, greenhouse and canopied pier slip are yours with this stunning home. Stylish finishes combine with multiple fireplaces, ample outdoor patio space, loads of parking, and immaculate landscaping. This is a rare offering, only a short walk from downtown Fontana and the Lake Geneva Yacht Club. You won’t find character and architectural details like this in this price range.  Ready for immediate enjoyment.  $2,875,000

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

Reduced! 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

Sold! Remarkably rare offering on the lakefront in Buena Vista. Vintage character combines with modern, luxury finishes to create a perfect lakeside retreat. New, oversized kitchen with Viking and Sub-Zero. Hardwood floors throughout. Two cut-granite fireplaces and a lakeside porch that spans the entire width and height of the original home. Private pier with slip (owner has 31′ boat currently), ample parking, and incredible lakeside patio/deck space for entertaining. Lush perennial gardens, landscape lighting and irrigation, all just a short stroll to Gordy’s and Chuck’s. Immaculate condition. $2,875,000

Sold! Lakefront homes are often judged not by what they offer, but by what they don’t. Thankfully, at Bluff Lane we have it all. 76′ of private frontage. A huge private pier with 40′ canopied slip and swim deck. A two car garage with lakeside storage underneath for water toys. A luxurious master suite with huge lake views, large walk in closet, and beautifully appointed bath. Here you’ll find three full levels of finished living space, five total bedrooms, and three fireplaces. Thoughtfully and carefully renovated in 2009, this home is ready for immediate enjoyment.  Located in Linn Township for more privacy and lower taxes. $2,145,000

Sold! I see views of the lake every day. Most are nice, some water here and there, some trees. Some, however, are stellar. Some are rare. The view from this home on Cedar Point is perhaps the finest view of the lake I’ve ever seen. And if it’s the best view I’ve seen, then odds are it’s the best view you’ve seen, too.  This updated lakefront features 78 feet of private lakefrontage, five bedrooms, three baths, a two car garage, and beautiful lakeside boathouse. New to market for fall of 2018, this is a rare offering and one that will surely sell quickly.  $2,595,000

Geneva Lakefront Price Per Foot

It's not the best way to determine value, but it helps.

Lake Geneva Real Estate property value discovery includes price per foot, price per square foot of both the overall property and residence, and many nuanced factors including geographic location, topography, adjacent water quality, shoreline orientation, and more.  All of Geneva’s shoreline is good, but some of it is a whole lot better. That’s why it’s best to just ask us and we’ll give it to you straight.

Lake Geneva’s Best Pizza

On December 17th, I decided to try the Keto diet.

In spite of the temptations, I adhered closely to this diet. No sugar, no bread, no starch. Fruits…

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the week that was. Monday we were roused from our slumber by snow, perhaps six inches of it, and we were glad. Or at least my kids were glad, because snow days are to be celebrated. Then the temperatures dropped, and Wednesday school was called, followed by Thursday. It…

It’s January. Time for snow storms that aren’t really actually snow storms, and lakefront price reductions. Inventory will build over the coming 30 days, and price reductions won’t be uncommon for existing inventory. That’s why I just reduced the price of 389 North Lakeshore Drive in Fontana $500,000. It’s $7.395MM now, and if you had…

The fact that this large association functions as its own market is something that vexes those who live and play…
