Eat-In Kitchen

Triangular shaped glass pendant lights hover magically above the island in the kitchen. At the end of the room, a round table and chairs make a welcoming breakfast nook.

Dining Room

Clean lines and those breathtaking lake views are all the adornment this midcentury dining room needs.

Bedroom

The fresh yellow and white floral pattern of the bed linen makes a stylish graphic counterpoint to the dark gray walls. Catch up on work or emails at the desk, inspired by the lake views.

Bathroom

Wash up at the cool farmhouse sinks below floating mirrors and, thanks to more giant windows, never miss out on the view.

Bedroom

Light and bright, this bedroom is bathed in sunshine courtesy of the wall of windows lining one side. Step out the door onto the scenic terrace.

Stairs and Hall

A contemporary wood-and-metal floating staircase takes occupants from one level to the next. Light green walls are a vibrant echo of the trees and grass outside.

Patio

The estate is a wonderful rolling, open and private property with a swimming and boat dock and a beach, as well as patios for entertaining and relaxing.

Exterior

Crisp, geometric lines and a palette of white, red and gray for the home's exterior sharply contrast with the emerald green lawns.

Lake and Dock

Blue Heron is a crystal clear, 48-acre private lake within one hour of midtown Manhattan. Swim, boat, relax to your heart's content.  

Guest Cottage

The nearby guest cottage is a chic property in its own right with its dark gray exterior and cherry red front door.
