Focused on the lakefront, this room’s curvaceous curtain wall of glass opens to the fabulous outdoor entertainment space, where the immense infinity pool visually connects with the glittering expanse of lake waters in a setting that makes every social event an occasion to remember.
Other accoutrements for entertaining include the roof-top observation deck, theater room, and two full kitchens capable of serving large groups. Seven bedroom suites feature the lavish master wing and include two guest suites in the carriage house, also perfect for staff or captain’s quarters. Garages in the main residence and carriage house accommodate a grand total of nine vehicles.
