Built in 1853, and named The Lake House, the house is a mix of Second Empire and 20th century Classical Revival styles. The large lot, 1.38 acres, and impressive scale of the building contributes to the sense of age and grandeur on Lake Street, one of the oldest streets in the village of Cooperstown.
46 Lake has evolved and changed, through generations from its earliest existence, into a gracious, well- loved Cooperstown home with warm and gentle appeal. It is a gorgeous, historic lake front estate with direct lake frontage and access.
This impressive home, rich with history and lovingly maintained, is available for the first time in over 30 years. The owners made it a priority to keep the home’s original history and charm, while keeping features no longer built into modern homes. It is the details that have kept this home distinctly one of a kind and absolutely irreplaceable. It is a most unique setting with a commanding presence.
Enjoy beautiful, spectacular views from the house whether inside or out. Dine on the covered porch, relax on one of the stone patios or in the gazebo lakeside while enjoying the quiet and privacy of the setting. The lush front lawn sweeps gently to Otsego Lake, inviting for a swim or boating excursion form the dock.
A rare opportunity for the lover of grand homes with remarkable architecture and detail to carry on the legacy found here.
