Villa Hortensia

North Shore Estate

Fair Oaks

Sold! 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

Just Sold! Reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pennsylvania masterpiece ”Fallingwater”, this Lake Geneva estate is beyond impressive. Tucked away on 224′ of level frontage and boasting 3.24 acres of depth, this estate home is available now for the first time in nearly two decades. Steel, glass, and stone seamlessly blend inside and out.  Cherry cabinetry and millwork grace every room, with separation of space and privacy for as many guests as you care to entertain. The estate parcel is wooded and private, with immaculate gardens and perrenial landscaping providing the backdrop for this restful retreat. A most remarkable estate parcel situated on a highly coveted stretch of lakefront. $6,575,000

New Listing! This magnificent home on Geneva’s leeward south shore was constructed by Fischer Fine Homes to an exacting standard.   The kitchen is refined and classic, a testament to Christopher Peacock and his fine custom cabinet builders. The light fixtures are timeless, just as you’d expect from Holly Hunt and Visual Comfort.  An east-coast inspired cedar shingle exterior and a machine cut cedar shake roof clad the exterior. The 7200+ square feet of finished square footage is without flaw. From the bluestone front entry to the handsome office off of the master suite, there is nothing lacking. The home is uniformly stylish.  It’s a perfect lakefront home, with wide lake views on a deliciously deep 2.26 acre lot and 98.5’ of private frontage.   In what I imagine was not an easy decision to make, the original owners are offering it to the market today for $6,695,000.

Double course brick construction with hand split cedar shake combine with many original steel windows and mature perennial landscaping to deliver a most remarkable three bedroom, three bathroom home. While many homes fell victim to the renovation follies of the 1970s and 1980s, this home has maintained most of its original character, while still offering an updated kitchen and master suite. Stroll to the lakefront park with summer lifeguard and sought-after sand beach, or walk the path to town. $879,000

Westerly exposure for wide-water views and perfectly framed sunsets. Westerly portion of the parcel is in conservancy and cannot be built on, but the remaining space will accommodate a magnificent new home. $3,990,000

Just Sold! Incredible first floor double unit at the Fontana Club.

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.

Over the past few months, there have been quite a few lakefront sales. Most recently, the $12.9M house in Lake Geneva closed for a whopping 1.15% off of the ask.
