Welcome to White Oak on the exclusive, gated Island at Copake Lake. This 6700+ sf Adirondack style home on 1.27 waterfront acres was designed to comfortably host family and friends. There are six bedrooms, four of them en-suites. Let's take a tour. The entrance perfectly aligns with the oversized windows and transoms, which frame the lake's beauty and your pathway to the water's edge. The main level is where you will find the great room with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace and bespoke iron and rope chandeliers. The open floor plan allows the kitchen, dining area and great rooms to blend into one. The kitchen has Caesarstone counters with custom white oak cabinetry and top-of-the-line appliances. There are two en-suites with lofts and a powder room on this floor as well. Adj
to the great room, a door leads you to the screened porch with the outdoor fireplace. Walk onto the bluestone patio and you'll find the in-deck eight-seat hot tub, overlooking the landscaped yard and view of the lake.
Continuing the tour, the lower level family room has an arched doorway that leads to the lawn and on to the lake. On this floor you will find three more bedrooms, one an en-suite, as well as an additional bathroom and powder room. What an ideal set-up for offering privacy to guests. The Finlandia sauna, made of Western Red Cedar, is also on this level, adding to the list of luxuries.
One of the brilliant design features of this home is the upstairs master wing all 1500+ sf of it. Master bedroom, walk-in closets, sitting areas and the "Tower Room." The bathroom has both a steam shower and a clawfoot tub, as well as access to a Juliet balcony.
Mud rooms for seasonal necessities: From the heated two-car garage with a Tesla charging station, you enter the winter mud room with custom racks for skis and other winter gear. For the summer months, take an outdoor shower and enter through the lower level mud room.
The property has been strategically planned with landscape lighting, irrigation, and even water and electric at the stone patio along the 130' of lakefront. Other amenities include a 40' dock, a solar-powered boat lift and personal watercraft lift. A cobblestone ramp offers easy access onto the lake for canoes and paddleboards in the summer and snowmobiles during the winter months. There is also a tennis court exclusive for Island residents and their guests.
If you haven't yet discovered Copake Lake, you're in for a treat. We are nestled between trending Hudson, NY, and quaint Great Barrington, MA. The lake is about 425 acres and is known for great fishing and watersports during the summer, and ice skating and ice fishing during the winter. With Copake Country Club's public 18-hole golf course, here at the lake, Catamount Ski Area/Aerial Park 9 miles away, and Tanglewood 35 minutes to the north, there is so much available to do year-round. And then there are the organic farms, vineyards, distilleries and farm-to-table restaurants.
It would be our honor to show you this quintessential Hudson Valley lake home, just 2 hours from NYC and 10 minutes to the Berkshires. Boston is about 2.5 hours away. An information sheet is available, highlighting the amenities and further details.
