About 5080 Lake Shore Dr

A true, historic, Adirondack camp, once part of the famed "Millionaires Row" referenced and described "The Great and the Gracious" by Kathryn E. O'Brien and numerous other books about the region, High Point, originally known as Felseck, was built in 1898 by Antonio Knauth. A popular attraction on local house tours, the property represents unique Adirondack architecture that is unlike any other on Lake George. Additional historical memorabilia pertaining to the house can be found in the Bolton Museum. More than a home - High Point has a heart and soul. It provides a sense of harmony, beauty and peace reminiscent of a more gracious era. With its rustic elegance, it is perfect for large scale entertaining; yet comfortable for small family living. High Point experiences are to be savored and shared with family and friends over generations. Situated on 1.6 private acres and walking distance to Bolton Landing and the Sagamore Hotel, High Point is a timeless treasure. The 7,600 square foot mansion has 9, double brick, working fireplaces creating a cozy atmosphere during winter months. Two, recently installed, propane fired Buderus furnaces provide hot water heat to radiators serving the first and second floors of the home. The third floor is seasonal. The basement is also heated. Each radiator has its own return and thermostat for efficient, quiet heating effectively turning each room into its own heating zone. The 1,000-gallon propane tank also supplies the Generac self-starting generator that ensures uninterrupted electricity during stormy weather. The 60-foot, covered, wrap-around porch, enhanced and surrounded by a sea of hydrangea, is ideal, for dining alfresco even during inclement weather; and, provides unparalleled, panoramic, lake and mountain views of the Narrows, Tongue Mountain, Shelving Rock and Lake George at its widest point; views that have literally not changed in thousands of years and are protected by State legislation. The expansive views can also be enjoyed from 9 of its 12 bedrooms as well as the living room, dining room and kitchen. 183 feet of lakefront provide a sandy swimming area; docking for six boats; a mooring; and two expansive recreational decks for sunning, launching canoes, kayaks, windsurfers and paddle boards. This property is for the Adirondack aficionado with a penchant for history; an eye for architectural beauty; a passion for views that go on forever; and a desire for a truly one-of-a-kind prestigious lakefront property."Adjacent view lot/cottage available to purchase (tax map# 171.11-2-13.12 but 5080 Lake Shore needs to close first
