A collection of Lake Geneva's finest properties.

Lake Geneva has lots of homes bordering its shores. Big ones, little ones, fancy ones. Good ones and bad ones. But even the good ones generally lack something. Great houses on bad lots, bad houses on great lots. The dance goes on, but normally requires some level of settling. At 1014 South Lakeshore, there’s no settling. There’s only pure lakefront perfection that plays out on 162.5′ of dead level frontage, with more than 2.8 acres of delicious, manicured depth.  $7,995,000

Otto Young was born in Prussia in the year 1844. He moved to London, then to New York.

The spaces boast a dedication to the restoration and preservation of orginal finishes typically reserved for public buildings of cultural importance. $5,995,000
