Simply perfect lakefront property on 1,320-acre all-sports Croton Pond. Start with a quiet cul-de-sac lot with no steps to the water, then add a spectacular 4- bedroom, 1.5-bath year-round home with over $80,000 in improvements including kitchen, roof, furnace. Light and bright with open floor plan, southern exposure, and glass solarium spanning the front of the home, bringing the outside in. Living room with new gas fireplace insert, stunning new kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances, laundry, full bath. Up are 4 bedrooms and half bath (or reconfigure to a full bath/3 bedrooms). Enjoy all the action on the lake from the large sunny lakefront deck. This lake house can be a turn-key purchase with furniture and finishes included at the right price. Move right in!Outdoors you’ll find new seawall, a wonderful swimming beach, and a back lot just purchased for parking where a garage could be built. The extra lot sits on its own water frontage with great fishing and views of the wildlife in the area. This property has the best swimming on Croton Pond, with a sandy bottom, little to no current, and one of the few lakefronts without a severe drop off. This is a special property, well cared for, with lots of opportunity to make it your own. Great for entertaining guests, as summer cottage or as a year-round residence. Best of all, there is 1320 acres of waterway from Croton Dam to Hardy Dam, 5 miles long. Boat to local restaurant, ice cream and pizza/sandwich shop, and float on the water at the Driftwood while listening to the live bands. Includes 2 parcels: 62-20-05-450-002 & 62-20-05-450-036. The road paving bid was $45,000 divided by 34 houses which equals approx. $1,323 per house and can be divided across 5 or 7 years paid annually on December tax bill or paid all at once when paving is done.
