A Modern Lake House Retreat


Exquisitely designed and built to the highest standards, this newly custom-built, four-bedroom, state-of-the art home has never been occupied and is ready for immediate occupancy. This modern lake house totals 4,730 square feet on three levels, comprised of four bedrooms (master has deck with lake views), four bathrooms, two powder rooms, and an attached, heated two-bay garage.

The spacious living room with a vaulted ceiling has dramatic views of Lake Waramaug and an elevated fireplace. There is a large sitting area in the second-floor loft space that opens to the living room, which is between the two spacious bedrooms with great lake views.

Attention to details and quality is represented by solid oak trim, smoked Russian oak flooring, heated ceramic floor tiles, LePage windows and doors, and Emtek hardware throughout.

A modern kitchen plan includes two Meile dishwashers, a dual compressor, French door style, stainless steel fridge/freezer by Subzero, and a six-burner stove and massive Wolf oven (flanked and backed with Carrera marble, capped overhead with a stainless steel, LED lighted exhaust hood, also by Wolf). The kitchen island hosts stools for casual dining and conversation as well as a gooseneck faucet for the sink. Adjacent sits a workstation desk area and side entrance door. The kitchen’s main feature is just beyond the dining area, outside double glazed, double doors: a red mahogany–decked porch with outdoor remote controlled fireplace, seating for eight, all sitting high atop a sweeping view of Lake Waramaug.

There is a third dishwasher and Subzero refrigerator discretely installed under the built-in mahogany bar in the spacious, ground-floor family room with an expansive view of the lake and direct access to a large lawn. A stainless steel bar sink, surrounded by black granite counter top, complements the solid oak under-counter cabinets. The bar is conveniently located just around the corner from the cedar-lined wine cellar with built-in racks for more than 500 bottles of red, white, rosé, or bubbly. Next to the wine cellar is a large bonus space perfect for a home theater, gym, or children’s playroom.

At the water’s edge is a new boathouse with living area (including kitchen and bathroom) plus enclosed boat dockage. The prime waterfront area includes a level lawn, floating dock, and over 150 feet of lake frontage with masonry steps leading into the lake.
