194 East Lake Road
House · Tuxedo Park · $5,500,000
Deep in the heart of the fabled Village of Tuxedo Park, 194 East Lake Road comes to the market offering an opportunity to make this magnificent hilltop mansion, seated on 4.7 idyllic acres, your home. As the gates open to afford access to this very private property, you proceed up the driveway through the beautifully cultivated grounds, which set the scene and create a backdrop of quiet refined elegance, all artfully composed for compatibility with and further enhancement of, not only this most special home but the breathtaking natural topography of the area. Arriving at a large circular driveway, you now ascend a gentle slope to reach the porch and entry of this spectacular 9,000 sq. ft. home with surrounding porches, decks and lake views from almost every room. Built in 2008, with attention to every detail, inside and out, this house is in triple-mint condition with finishes of extraordinary quality, top-of-the-line appliances and state of the art systems throughout, and represents a truly rare opportunity to immediately embrace and enjoy the lifestyle afforded in this renowned enclave.
The entry foyer, with a grand staircase to its right, is the center from which all primary living and entertaining rooms generate. To the left is the corner living room which leads to a corner library, each with a wood-burning fireplace. Also discreetly positioned off of the foyer to the left is a powder room, and a coat closet is to the right. Straight ahead is the entrance to a large dream open kitchen, overlooking a family sitting area, nestled inside a wide-sweeping bayed window, and a generous dining area with fireplace for casual dining with family and friends and a butler's pantry just beyond. Off of the kitchen and to the right of the foyer is the formal dining room, from which you can proceed into a billiards room and on through double doors leading to the indoor climate-controlled pool and gym. A mud room and full bath, as well as an elevator which runs from the basement to the third floor, complete the first floor, which is surrounded with covered porches and a deck overlooking Tuxedo Lake.
At the top of the grand staircase on the second floor to the left you enter the large corner master bedroom suite, a haven of privacy and refinement, with a private sitting area, fireplace, spectacular bayed master bath, and an office/den, with both en-suite and private entrances and a fireplace. The second floor has an additional four bedrooms with en-suite baths, a sitting area and a laundry room. At the end of the bedroom hall, a separate staircase ascends to a private guest suite/office with sitting area and a full bath. All rooms have amazing views.
Just behind the foyer before entering the kitchen is another stairway. Downstairs is another bedroom with en-suite bath, a wine room, home theater, a recording studio, mud room, separate storage areas, a mechanical room and a three-car garage with workshop.
The separate 2,000 sq. ft. children's playhouse has three bedrooms and four full baths with an additional two car garage. It is heated and air conditioned. There is a full irrigation system around both houses. Included in the sale is a large electric boat and a go-cart to travel back and forth to the home's private dock on the Tuxedo Lake.
