An extraordinary testament to the highest standards of luxury living! This home was completely gutted down to the studs and masterfully reimagined by award-winning architect, Karl Straussburger. Whether you're an athlete, artist, chef, or simply an enthusiast, this property is custom-built to suit your needs. One of only 14 homes on Lake Longmeadow with exclusive riparian rights and the only home on the lake with an incredible private peninsula. Along the waterfront is the ultimate fishing hub, abundant with bass, bluegill, and other natural wildlife. A retaining wall to prevent erosion has been installed by the US Army Corps of Engineers. A floating dock off the lake provides access to the water and leads to a separate brick patio, which offers views of the serene natural surroundings. The patio also features a cozy fire pit, perfect for enjoying the beauty of the outdoors while staying warm and comfortable. With 111 feet of lakefront access and riparian rights, this home is perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, and ice skating in the winter months, all from your quiet backyard. The grandiose backyard has been impeccably landscaped, including an invisible dog fence in the backyard, and still with enough room to add a swimming pool. The prime outdoors of this home is adorned with apple and peach trees as well as a tomato and herb garden. Every inch of the property has been thoughtfully redesigned and beautifully updated to create a truly breathtaking living experience. From the moment you step off the custom brick circular driveway and enter through the magnificent foyer, you'll be greeted by an open and spacious floor plan, where all of the home has been perfectly designed with meticulous detail that is apparent in every room. The main floor, with all hardwood flooring throughout, flows from the brightest piano room with a fireplace to a separate formal dining room with comfortable seating for 12 people. Also on the main level are two custom-designed offices with fantastic custom woodwork, a powder room, an elevator connecting 3 floors, and an expansive mudroom. The picturesque kitchen with a butler's pantry and informal dining space is an entertainer's dream, with serene views of the backyard, and connects to the living room with a fireplace. Off the kitchen is a bright sunroom with 100-year-old barn wood accents and heated floors, and a fireplace that opens to the grand brick outdoor patio space. The second floor boasts 5 en suite bedrooms with the finest finishes, heated bathroom floors, and large walk-in closets. The impressively spacious primary suite is a true retreat and opens to a balcony with the best views of the backyard and lake. Adjacent to the primary suite is a separate sitting room, and a spiral staircase leading to a private library above the primary bedroom with more impeccable woodwork, which is illuminated by four custom stained-glass skylights. Also on the third level is a safe room, full bath, and two large rooms currently being used as an artist studio and film developing studio but could also be bedrooms. The lower level continues to impress with an additional bedroom with a full bath and kitchenette that makes for a private part of the home for hosting guests. A few stellar features of the home reside on the lower level with a full temperature-controlled glass wine cellar, complete with a separate private tasting room with custom wood accents. The theater boasts 3 rows of seating and is uniquely adorned with a charming back row to mimic vintage theater seating. The theater is also equipped with double soundproofed walls and ceiling making for an idyllic viewing experience. Also along this level are two expansive gym and exercise rooms, one with 10 ft ceilings adequate to add a golf simulator, and another bathroom with a sauna connecting to the other exercise room. Don't miss out on the opportunity to make this exquisite home your own and experience the very best in upscale living!
