Exquisitely designed and built to the highest standards, this custom newly built four bedroom state-of-the art home has never been occupied and is ready for immediate occupancy. There is also a new boathouse with living area (including kitchen and bathroom) plus enclosed boat dockage. This is perhaps the best new property to come on the lake market in the last few years and this is the ONLY new construction currently available for purchase. Magnificent views overlooking the widest part of the lake. Over 150’ of prime lake frontage. 25’ x 10’ deck at the water’s edge. New dock. Stone steps into the lake. Sandy swim area. Level lawn.

This Modern Lake House totals 4,730sf on three levels, is comprised of four bedrooms (master has deck with lake views), four bathrooms, two powder rooms, and attached, heated two-bay garage.

A modern kitchen plan includes two Meile™ dishwashers, a dual compressor, French door style, stainless steel fridge/ freezer by Subzero™, a six burner stove and massive Wolf™ oven, flanked and backed with Carrera marble, capped overhead with stainless steel, LED lighted exhaust hood, also by Wolf™. The kitchen island hosts stools for casual dining and conversation as well as a gooseneck faucet for the sink. Adjacent sits a workstation desk area and side entrance door. The kitchen’s main feature just beyond the dining area, outside double glazed, double doors, is a red mahogany decked porch with outdoor remote controlled fireplace, seating for eight, all sitting high atop a sweeping view of Lake Waramaug.

The spacious living room with a vaulted ceiling has dramatic views of Lake Waramaug and an elevated fireplace. There is a large sitting area in the second floor loft space open to the living room which is between the two spacious bedrooms with great lake views.

The state-of-the-art Nest™ Gen 3™, smartphone app controlled HVAC system, has six zones of custom controlled forced air heat and air conditioning all backed up by “whole house” generator and direct fueled with 1,000 gallons of liquid propane (buried tank).

The in-house sound system is controlled through smart phone application, speakers are throughout the ground and first floors.

The entire house is safeguarded with a multi-sensor, whole house alarm system, enhanced with entry door alerts and integrated smoke and fire alarm system, all smart phone app controlled.

Attention to details and quality is represented by solid oak trim, smoked Russian oak flooring, heated ceramic floor tiles, LePage™ windows and doors and Emtek™ hardware throughout.

There is a third dishwasher and Subzero™ refrigerator discretely installed under the built-in mahogany bar in the spacious ground floor family room with an expansive view of the lake and direct access to a large lawn. A stainless steel bar sink, surrounded by black granite counter top, compliments the solid oak under-counter cabinets. The bar is conveniently located just around the corner from the cedar-lined wine cellar with built in racks for more than 500 bottles of red, white, rose or bubbly. Next to the wine cellar is a large 16 ’x 18’ bonus space perfect for a home theater, gym, or children’s playroom.

On the outside, this house is topped with 5/8” red cedar shake shingles and standing seam copper-roofed dormers all leading to custom-built copper rain collection system. All water runoff from the roof to the pavers in the court yard, is bio filtered, routed through the sediment control chambers of the rain gardens, ensuring environmentally sound handling of water before it is returned to the lake and surrounding aquifer.
