Introducing an unparalleled opportunity that marks the peak of our 80-year legacy in offering Adirondack real estate. A one-of-a-kind property spanning 70 acres of breathtaking natural beauty. Nestled along Adirondack Loj Road in Lake Placid, beneath the Southern High Peaks, this estate offers a chance to immerse yourself in serene moments amidst its stunning landscape.

Beyond its captivating surroundings, the property’s allure is enriched by its main residence—a testament to the craftsmanship of European artisans. Meticulously hand-cut stone walls evoke the elegance and grandeur of the late 1800s, while handmade bronze windows and doors further enhance its historical ambiance, offering captivating vistas. Ideal for both country retreats and entertaining, the estate features five bedroom suites with five bathrooms, ten native stone wood-burning fireplaces, a wine cellar, and a Brunswick bowling lane.

Outside, a sanctuary of tranquility awaits, inviting you to immerse yourself in the serene symphony of flowing waterfall. From every door and window, the enchanting sounds of nature beckon, accompanied by the gentle murmur of the north brook cascading down the waterfall from the expansive 5-acre, 40-foot-deep pond. This brook meanders its way to join the West Branch of the Ausable River, marking the inception of a waterway that eventually converges with the Hudson River, forming an enduring connection to a vast and storied water network. The property also holds a prestigious lineage, once owned by renowned golfer Craig Wood, winner of the 1941 Masters Invitational. Later, George Holley, inventor of the Holley Carburetor, took ownership. Holley enlisted his friend Thomas Edison to construct a hydro dam, serving as a testament to human ingenuity and providing a distinctive rare connection to the past.

Whether you’re seeking a private residence or a potential corporate retreat, this property seamlessly intertwines natural marvels with historical significance.
