Beautiful Waterfront Home on Tupper Lake
This authentic Adirondack camp was originally constructed in 1926. Since then an incredible new look has been created. Initially, it was a simple camp enclosed by trees and brush and now it is more of a lovely family retreat. Situated less than 150' off the shoreline of big Tupper Lake this great camp is a true waterfront dream.
As you wind down the country driveway this log and cedar shake home is traditionally painted in dark brown and hunter green. You park conveniently underneath the carport. Upon entering the home you immediately look out at the lake. A coat and boot entry sets the tone for this cozy lakefront dwelling. One is immediately drawn to a warm living room with honey tone log interior walls and a grand stone fireplace and hearth. This is the typical place for rest and relaxation on a cold winter evening. This is open to a bright sun room and connects to a small office/computor room. Originally the main floor had a master bedroom and full bath: this is now a great bedroom.
As you wander up the staircase, you approach the second floor. It is a great hallway to display family photos. At the top of the stairs is a half bath and laundry room. The master bedroom is in the center of the second floor with breathtaking views of the lake. The huge picture window captures the entire unobstructed views of Big Tupper Lake. This room also has an attached bath and walk-in closet. Two other bedrooms are at the end of the hallway both with closets.
The basement of the house has a weight room, TV room and another spare bedroom. Also, there are all typical and a-typical features. The outdoor wood stove which heats the water of the heating system of the house. Recently in-floor radiant heat has been installed which is very efficient and heats the house extremely well. The system also has floor board heat for use when the wood stove is not in use. The water source is from a wonderfully pure well with an endless supply of water. There is a newly installed septic systems as well. There is a back-up generator hook-up that is easy to switch over from the village power supply.
Every Adirondack home must have a hunting room. With a skilled hunter residing in this home, there are bound to be trophies displayed on the walls. This room has a wonderful natural light and its own walk-out deck. There is plenty of storage off this room and has wonderful oak ceiling and wood work. This room is perfect for curling up with a good book.
The heart of this house, which is known here as the kitchen, is the jewel of the home. This gorgeous room was redesigned and renovated just two years ago. All new Viking appliances have been installed and create an elegant look for this eat-in family kitchen. Bland and salmon colored granite cover all the counters including the island. The granite compliments the hand-constructed cherry cabinets, ceiling and woodwork. Two large picture windows capture the magnificent mountain and lake scenery. On a quiet morning before sunrise, sipping on your coffee, you can hear the faint but clear calls of the native loons across the lake. Summertime is filled with boating, swimming and fishing just steps from your front door.
The APA approved boathouse has a classic style and is very functional. It has a spacious work area and plenty of cover for boats. The docks and the boat house are a huge asset to this unique property. A daily swim off the dock is a cherished summertime activity. The shoreline is protected by an authentic and handsome stone wall which is seen especially from the water.
Whether you are interested in a summer retreat or year-round residence, this home offers many possibilities!
