This is a classic home on pristine Candlewood Lake. The home was commissioned and built by renowned designer, Marcel Breuer and completed in the late 1950's. Perched up on a lovely hill, the home offers panoramic views of the lake along with a private dock and access to all water activities. There is an outdoor fire pit, 2 large patio's (one that is tented.) We include sailboats and canoes and the house is ready for summer fun! Only 90 min from NYC!
The home retains its original 1950's decor and details and it feels like a time warp when you enter. It is comfortable and has a wonderful energy that just stops time. The perfect summer retreat and family vacation.
You will have full access to the house and use of all cooking, cleaning and other supplies. The house has a washer/dryer and has all the basic water toys including sailboat, canoes, and a giant floating island. Grab a fishing pole and fish right off the dock! There is wi-fi and nice flat-screen TV's in several rooms.
Interaction with guests
I am always a phone call away and live locally, so I can be there if there is any urgency. The house is very self-sufficient and you will enjoy peace and quiet.
Other things to note
House is right next to a beautiful beach with open grassy space and sandy waterfront access. Beach offers a roped off swim area and nice dock for swimming/sunning. The beach is almost always empty and totally separated from the house by tall hedges.
My name is Steve and I am a native New Yorker. I lived in Turkey for 5 years and fell in love with the people, the culture, the food, language and everything about it. The Mediterranean coast was of particular appeal to me and I decided to build this villa. While I now live back in NYC I try to make it over to Turkey at least once a year for a holiday. The villa is a special place and will surely provide a tranquil and rejuvenating holiday. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Best, Steve
