Two beautiful homes with a total of 5 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths on 102 feet of shorefront located on pristine Kiwassa Lake. Just 2.4 miles from Main Street in the Village of Saranac Lake with NO Village taxes. Located on a paved road maintained by the Town of Harrietstown, the six buildings on the property provide many opportunities for year around living. The hemlock trees surrounding the camp and property provide a cooling canopy in the summer and a significant amount of privacy. There is no lawn to mow, and many perennial wildflowers bloom throughout the season.
Turn back the hands of time and enjoy the seasonal 1930?s camp which can sleep 10 people. The front porch has some of the best sunset views in the Adirondacks, with large hemlocks framing the water and sunset view. The open living/dining area boasts a beautiful stone fireplace. The adjacent eat-in kitchen has a vintage wood-fired cook stove which quickly heats the kitchen on cool mornings. The camp has a full bathroom inside with vintage claw foot tub and a separate full bathroom/showerhouse a few steps away in its own building. All furnishings are included, most of which were there when the property was purchased by the current owner 49 years ago.
The all season home provides a comfortable winter get away or a summer guest retreat with an open concept living/kitchen area, an upscale kitchen, wood stove, spacious master bedroom with a spa like master bathroom, brand new clothes washer and dryer, 12 kw automatic standby generator, and a spacious 2-car heated garage. In total there are 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in this building. Built in 1993 it is extremely energy efficient for heating and most lighting is LED. Many shorefront owners ski and snowshoe right on the lake in the winter, and world class skiing is available at Whiteface Mountain or Mt. Van Hoevenberg each only about 30 minutes away.
The boathouse has a rooftop deck and dock for lake views and easy swimming access. The boathouse is designed to accommodate a 17 foot ski boat. Located on the East shore toward the North end of the lake the location provides additional privacy from outside boat traffic which comes in via the access channel located at the South end of the lake. The fact that there are 25 miles of navigable water right from the boathouse is a significant attraction to this property.
In addition to the two-car heated garage, another separate two car garage, is available to store off season boats, snowmobiles, cars, or whatever would benefit from storage from weather.
There is a vintage woodshed constructed of spruce poles, which provides space to store wood for the wood stove, kitchen stove and fireplace. It also is perfect to store tools.
A garden area has been constructed with fencing which provides a deer-free zone for seasonable vegetable growing.
If you are looking for a get-away on one of the premier Adirondack lakes, this is a must see that has not been on the market for 49 years.
