Brant Lake house description

Gourmet kitchen with large island, green slate countertops, a double oven, a 5 burner gas stove, and large bar-style wooden countertop for seating. Separate breakfast nook with built-in bench seats. Great room, library, dining room, laundry room, and mud room. Custom woodwork, stained glass, and built-ins throughout. Oversized fireplace. Porch and deck facing lake. Sleeps 10.
Large oversized circular driveway with three separate parking areas. Park-like grounds with two fields on the back lot. Large 75’ sandy beach with gentle sloop and sandy bottom far into lake. There is a firepit near the beach with large boulders for sitting in a circle around the fire.
Separate boathouse with two drive-in/paddle in bays and changing room. Four kayaks. Two fishing boats with 5 and 10 hp motors, respectively. Two sailboats – one Laser-sized (Force 5 racer) and one 14.2 Capri.
Perfect-sized mountain lake (1357 acres; 5+ miles long by ½ mile across). Water gets up to 80 degrees by August. Large 75’ sandy beach with gentle sloop and sandy bottom into lake. Unique to the area as most lake frontage within the Park is rocky.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1998

          About the owner: This was developed as a vacation home / 'Adirondack Camp' for a Wall Street Executive. The owners did all of the design and specification work for the house. The house is of new construction but replicates many of the architectural features of our home on the Main Line outside of Philadelphia. The compound includes a separate one bedroom cabin and very large period piece replicate of the majestic boathouses of the Adirondacks.

          Why the Owner Chose Brant Lake:
          This is a truly unique property both for its acreage size, its impressive residence, and its location on the Park. It is far enough into the park to leave civilization behind but close enough to the entrance (30 minutes) to still be convenient to shopping and other civilized amenities. You can actually feel the tension flow away from you as you get closer and closer to home. The house sits on Brant Lake, one of the most pristine lakes in the Adirondacks. Brant Lake is large enough to boat, sail, and water-ski upon but it is a low density lake so it is serene and uncrowded. It has excellent fishing and exceptional natural beauty. The property itself has 480 feet of lakefront with 75 feet of sandy beach. The compound comprises 2.5 acres on the lakeside and 14 park-like acres across Palisades Road with two large fields at the back of the lot. Deer, raccoon, foxes, otters, and other wildlife are prevalent throughout the immediate area. Brant Lake itself is within the 6.3 million acre Adirondack State Park, the largest state park in the United States. There is excellent hiking, cycling, fishing, and boating within the park. Small town atmosphere with friendly people. Weekly music concerts and square dancing in the summer. Adirondack Shakespeare Company and Seagull Music Colony close-by. Come get away from the stress and strain of work and the city. Within 30 minutes of Fort Ticonderoga to the east, Gore Mountain [skiing and hiking] to the west, Lake George to the east, or Lake George Village to the south. Within one hour of Queensbury & Glens Falls to the south, or the Adirondack Museum and Lake Champlain to the north. One hour and a half to High Peaks and Wild Center to the north, or Albany to the south.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          It is rare to find this much acreage on such a desirable lake. Most homes have 60 feet or at most 100 feet of lakefront. We have 480 feet of lake front. Moreover, we have a large sandy beach. Most Adirondack homes, if they have lake access. enter directly onto the rocks in the lake (this is an ancient glacier area with tons of rocks) or have s deck or dock out into the lake. this property has a long, wide beach with a gently sloping sandy entry into the Brant Lake. The house is equidistant to most attractions. This is a rural area (of course it is, that's why it's a State Park) so nothing is just down the street. But most major destinations are within a reasonable drive from Brant Lake / Horicon [it's original name]. The fishing is excellent as is the cycling. Our lake is incredibly beautiful, and our cove is sheltered [so less lake traffic] yet we can easily access the main part of the lake. We have great views down to the west end of the lake and look directly across onto a mountain top.
