A collection of Lake Geneva's finest properties.


Villa Hortensia

North Shore Estate

Fontana Lakefront

Pending Sale! Sea grass limestone and white oak floors (with a break for wool in a guest suite or two) run throughout the more than 11,000 square feet of this home.  A main floor master suite on the east end of the home is warmed by one of the home’s five masonry fireplaces. If you sit in the great room, your gaze isn’t quite sure where to wander. You could find the fireplace, with it’s cut-limestone surround. Or you could look to the obvious, through the huge lakeside windows and onto that divine lake. Or up, to the white oak walls and Douglas Fir balcony. Or away from the lake and the fire, and onto the serene driveway side, with that steel atrium and the custom fixtures that illuminate. In spite of these views, this home isn’t really something you see as it is something you feel. $10,995,000

Legacy Estate Offering! Villa Hortensia is the first legacy estate of this caliber to come to market in more than two decades. Finished in 1906, famed architect Howard Van Doren Shaw collaborated with legendary landscape architect Jens Jensen to ensure the Edwin Swift’s new lake home would settle confidently and quietly into this massive wooded site. Distinctly mediterranean in style, the striking Spanish tile roof set against a stucco exterior marked a timeless and significant landmark on Snake Road. The 20 acre site has a staggering 502′ of level lakefront, with 2 piers and privacy from the shore path. The thrill of winding down Snake Road to the understated yet impressive entry of Villa Hortensia is as memorable as any approach on this lake. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to secure a legacy estate. $20,750,000

Geneva Lakefront Price Per Foot

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

Value discovery in Lake Geneva is remarkably nuanced. This is why your choice in representation matters so much. The market is positioned to highly value the Price Per Foot statistic, which we display for you here. But there’s much more to the market than just this simplistic understanding of value. Work with us to better understand how each section of shoreline should come with its own expectation of value.
