3232 Lake Shore Drive, Lake George, New York, United States, 12845
Wikiosco, Algonquin Indian for Home on Beautiful Waters, lives up to its name with its commanding views of the lake. This towering lakefront Tudor Revival with 9 bedrooms & 9 bathrooms sits proud on a 6.27 acre estate property with 545 feet on Lake George. Built c.1895, Wikiosco is a spectacular example of Tudor Revival architecture and is the most intact example of mansions built in that time period along the then amply named “Millionaire’s Row” along the western shore of the lake. It was designed by architecture firm Ludlow and Peabody for Royal C. Peabody, founder of Brooklyn Con Edison. Today, the historic property retains many of the original details from original carved oak doors and oak beams to stunning stained glass windows and crown moldings. With over 20,000 square feet, the main residence is three and a half stories rising from a stucco frame above a raised basement, while the first story is sheathed in rough cut granite ashlar. The lawns surrounding the magnificent home slope gently down to the pool, dock and lake and offer perennial gardens blooming through the season. An incomparable property at a reduced price. It was previously listed as much as $17,900,000 in 2008 and more recently for $15,750,000. It’s on the market for $12,900,000 with Sotheby’s International Realty.
