A collection of Lake Geneva’s finest properties.
Sold! Stoney Hollow at Pier 74 is a magnificent stone and slate Tudor located on Snake Road at the end of private Folly Lane. This premier estate is offered with the finest of fit and finish on an impressive three acre lot with 128′ of gentle north shore frontage. We often describe the main living space of a home as being a ”great room”, but is it usually? At Stoney Hollow, the great room is absolutely stunning, with a full wall of windows and massive fireplace, one of eight in this custom home. The millwork is exemplary, the layout inspired and efficient, and a newly added screened porch offers an incredible lakeside entertaining and lounging space. Add in a heated driveway, brick motor court, two slip pier, boathouse, guest house, and immaculate landscaping and you’ve found a true gem. $10,995,000
Pending Sale! Every once in a great while, Lake Geneva offers up one of its truly coveted homes. Perhaps in the current market there is no location as desired as one possessing ample level frontage in the Village of Fontana. Pier 501 was constructed in 2011 to be the quintessential lakefront home. From the Cape Cod styling to the slate roof and the cedar shingles, from the boat house to the guest house to the sport court and every space in between there was to be no doubt that this was the perfect lake house. Upscale fit and finish abounds in this classical lake house, with each space being thoughtfully and carefully engineered to provide the most enjoyment. A more desirable lakefront home on Geneva Lake you will not find. Pier 501, available now for the most discerning buyer. $13,900,000
Sold! Once in a great while, a property is presented to the market that is so known, so revered, so celebrated, that no superlative description is required. These are the legacy properties that occupy not only the finest lots on the best streets and feature the highest grade architecture and finishes, these are the iconic properties that are so respected because of both what they are and what they represent. Today, for what is believed to be only the third time in its 115 year history, Glanworth Gardens, the preeminent estate on the premier lake in the Midwest, is being offered for sale. Replete with 40 acres of gardens and forest, 621+ feet of level frontage, and featuring an estate home with 14,145 square feet, this is the preeminent lakefront home in the premier lake in the Midwest. $39,250,000
This lakefront home sold in 2021 in an off market transaction, and then again in 2023 in an on-market print. Did you know that over 50% of the lakefront market on Geneva trades off market? With the largest network in this specific market segment, David Curry has been transacting marquee lakefront properties off market since 2019 with reliable frequency. During 2023, David closed five lakefront homes off market, and if you spent the year searching for inventory without engaging David to handle your search, you missed out on these discreet opportunities. So if you’re looking for an inside track on available lakefront homes, it’s rather obvious your choice of representation matters now more than ever. On market or off, if you’re ready to find your next lakefront home it’s time you speak directly with David Curry.
