Property Description

Two lovely Lakefront homes with a gated entrance. Over 2.2 Acres on Pistakee Bay with private boat launch & piers ~ Truly a unique Lakefront Estate on the southernmost part of the Chain O Lakes with incredible sunset views! Pistakee Bay is adorned with 19th century estates originally built by affluent summer dwellers. Local folklore describes residents & visitors to this area during the prohibition as Chicago Mobsters & crooked politicians. Most of these estates have been subdivided & it is rare to find a home like this on 2.2 acres which was built with good integrity with unique qualities & not altered beyond recognition which still offers modern amenities. When you enter the gates of this beautiful property you see the guest house on the left & beautiful sweeping lawn to 215'+ Lake Frontage. The main Colonial style home features 3 Ensuite bedrooms that view the lake and a traditional formal Living Room with fireplace framed by quarter-sawn tiger oak with wall of windows overlooking the lake, formal Dining Room with crown molding, private den, Master bedroom with 2 WIC, a sitting area & whirlpool tub, the whole 3rd level is a wonderful en-suite bedroom. There is a BONUS of additional living area with an apt suite above the attached 2 car garage featuring a kitchenette, full bath & private entrance. A gardners room with sink and wall of windows attaches the garage to the main house. This lovely home was built up higher then the lot & has a 2nd oversized detached garage for boat storage. PLUS a cozy 2 Bedroom ranch style guest cottage with lake views & bedrm 4 & 5 on the main level. Homes have newer windows but needs updating. Tennis court in the circular drive needs TLC. DREAM property!!! The correct tax ID is: 1020151002.
