              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About the owner: Fred Moran is a Wall Street Stock Analyst. This Copake Lake house has been his vacation property for 2 decades. Born and raised in Manhattan, Fred went to Fieldston High School and worked for leading investment banking firms in New York City. He enjoys power boating, waterskiing, cycling and tennis. Fred started weekending at Copake Lake immediately after graduating from college when his best friend and he bought their first waterski boat together.

              Why the Owner Chose Copake Lake:
              The Island at Copake Lake represents the premier community in the region with only 12 homes on 24 secluded Island acres. The Chateau De Mo stands on the cul de sac towards the end of the Island facing the biggest, most sweeping section of the main lake. The 4,100 square foot home has an open floor plan and an oversized back deck for active family living and entertaining. Watersports, swimming and fishing off the dock provide endless family fun. A newly constructed community tennis court is just steps from the Chateau.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
              Copake Lake's premier community with the best views of Copake Lake. Power boating and watersports including watersking on Copake Lake are a blast.
