The dream home located at 16 Cottage Road on the Northern end of Lake George is an elaborate upscale cottage embellished by Adirondack accouterments. The house was built with incredible attention to detail, and functionality in order to be the ultimate year round forever home.

This gem on the lake could be yours to enjoy.
As you enter from the driveway you are greeted by a gorgeous set of stairs and a mahogany porch where you can also enter into the pantry room for easy access. Off from the main living area you’ll notice to the left there is a three season insulated porch overlooking the lake. This is a great place to enjoy meals, watch TV or just sit and read a good book in the afternoon or coffee in the morning. The ten foot wide lakeside deck is large enough for several Adirondack chairs, a dining area and a grill. Also on the deck is a sunken hot tub to relax in and enjoy the meteor showers of August or full moons in the winter.
There is a formal entryway to the house and hardwood floors throughout. Glass transom above the doors add a subtle touch and allow for dimension and light to flow through the rooms. French doors open to the pantry for separation while adding to the houses dimension. Off to the right is a small study with hidden plumbing for a washer and dryer if ever it is needed. Across the hallway is a full bath complete with a benched shower and vanity for guests to use. There are two guest rooms on the main floor. One has ample space for a king sized bed that includes deck access and ability to walk right out to the lake. The second guest room has space for a queen bed.
Upstairs is the master suite with a louvered closet that includes a washer and dryer. There is a separate sink and vanity with a make up counter. There are two walk-in closets with built in shelves on either side of the hallway. One of the closets has access to a walk in attic storage space, which could be made into an office, nursery, or safe space, to be amplified with a window or skylight. The master bath has a walk in shower with a built in bench. The bathroom includes a heat lamp, towel warmer and additional sink vanity. The bedroom has a beautiful gas fireplace with a Cherry mantle and casings.

The windows all have high tech room darkening shades to keep in the heat, or for cooling purposes and allows for privacy.

There is a big gym area, living space, office area and dining space. Also, there is a spotless large boiler room where the radiant heat for the floors is stored and a separate room for the hot water heater.
