The Lake Illyria Estate

Neighboring 23,000 acres of National State Park Minnewaska

About The Lake House at Lake Illyria

This fabulous 3,900 square foot architectural gem and one-of-a-kind unique and glorious private estate on 3 acres plus adjacent and sharing of the 24 acres of the Lake Illyria wooded land neighbor to thousands of acres of State Park Natural Preserves Forest Land just under the cliff of the famous mountain climbing hot-spot of the Shawangunk Mountains… is now, for rent for short term vacation rentals and corporate retreats, film shoots and other exciting activities.

Neighboring 23,000 acres of State Park Minewaska and bordering 17,000 acres of Mohonk Preserves woodlands and 6400 acres of Mohonk’s Nature Sanctuary, this fabulous estate is just minutes away (a bicycle ride!) from the most beautiful parkland, lakes, mountain climbing, horseback riding and all outdoor sports!

This one-of-a-kind architect’s delight, designed by the well known – one of the first commercially viable woman architects in the US – Isabella Gillon, designed specifically as a vacation rental property, features hand built stone fireplaces, vaulted ceilings with unusual angles and skylights, a completely see-through home from one side to the other as a large part of the home is made of glass, huge 2 story glass windows overlooking the mountain cliffs, woods, the lake and the swimming pool.

There simply are no views to match the ever changing sunsets through the trees, dinners on the terrace-porch overlooking the lawn, the pool and the woods, night-caps on one of the decks or by the pool, and don’t forget the uber luxurious massage therapy hot tub.

The lake is fully stocked with fish (large mouth bass) so that in case of national emergency, your family could live off the lake. There is also swimming in the lake and a row-boat, and a dock.

Neighboring both Lake Mohonk and Lake Minniwaska, this estate is smack in the middle of every type of outdoor sport and entertainment possible in this area. From horseback riding, to sail boating, to mountain climbing, art-fairs in Woodstock only a few miles away, and so much more.

4.1 miles from the center of New Paltz with mini malls, shopping centers, movies, restaurants and everything else you could possibly need, this majestic and ultra private estate is also only 75 miles to midtown Manhattan and an easy skip hop and jump from North Jersey as well.
