Grand living of yesteryear made modern in this classic Beck and Tinkham Mansion overlooking Chautauqua Lake in the Village of Lakewood. Upon entering you are in a large foyer with 35 foot ceilings and two fireplaces which then leads to a grand staircase. On either side of the foyer are living areas perfect for entertaining and hosting guests. Cozy up regardless the weather with fireplaces throughout while at the same time enjoying wonderful lake views and easy access to the Lakewood Park and beach. Preparing dinners, formal and casual, is a breeze in the large kitchen with commercial grade appliances. With the dining room right next to the kitchen, the flow of this home is exceptional. You can also enjoy meals in the "Bistro" room surrounded by reathtaking, larger than life windows, offering lake views that will be memorable. A master suite with large sitting room and marble finished bath, once again with lake views, rounds out the first floor. The unique second floor has a gallery framed by original banister work around the staircase from which you access the 6-7 bedrooms. Each bedroom is spacious with appealing views. Need more space? With the approximately 2400 square feet on the third floor ready to finish the opportunities are endless. Make it a private theater, recreation room or additional bedroom space. Character and charm abound throughout this home and the ability to use the space in different ways makes it a good choice for many uses. Add to this the large parking area and a 20 foot right of way to the lake for your dock and you have all it takes for gracious lake living. A few steps to the village center, minutes to Lakewood area shopping, a short walk to the yacht club and an easy drive to area ski resorts and Chautauqua Institution and you have the ideal home for year round or vacation living.
