A collection of Lake Geneva’s finest properties.


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

Burr Oaks

Sold! You won’t find Burr Oaks farm unless you’re really looking for it. An understated entry gives way to a winding cobble driveway that dips past untold numbers of trees and flowers and shrubs and grasses. Beyond the Ussurian Pears, the Pin Oaks, near the Honey Locust and just to the edge of the prairies where the cone flowers bloom brilliantly, you’ll catch your first glimpse of this renovated 1890 cream city brick home, tucked inside a flowering garden that perfumes your arrival. The renovation of this estate was performed by local craftsmen with an eye towards refined luxury without concern for cost. The home is divine, the grounds unrivaled, the pool and pool house are simple summer perfection. 174 acres of immense privacy with pond prairie and pasture, minutes from downtown Lake Geneva. $4,999,000


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

Fontana Estate

Pending Sale! For all of the attributes that a home in Fontana might possess, privacy is not typically high on the list. But what if you were in Fontana and you owned a sprawling 19.5 acre wooded lot? What if you were walking distance to the Lake Geneva Yacht Club and to the Abbey Springs golf course, and still immersed in delicious, rare, privacy? 1081 South Lakeshore Drive offers just that. Beyond the entry gate and up the winding driveway you’ll find this luxurious residence spanning more than 8000 square feet, built to a most exacting standard by Scherrer Construction. The gardens and pond and tandem bluestone patios are a summertime delight, but the five fireplaces prove this is a home for all seasons. An added bonus is the original Clear Sky Lodge theatre that still graces this magical estate. $4,250,000

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.
