Description

This is a 4000 sq. ft. home on two wooded acres with 120 feet of lakefront at the Fontana end of Lake Geneva. It is a seven minute walk along the lake path to the village. The long private pier has a covered motorized boat lift and is complemented by a second smaller boat dock, a large swim raft, and a buoy for an additional boat.

The house was styled after William Wordsworth’s home in the Lake Country of England. It has been in the family since it was built in 1905 by Circuit Court Judge Christian Kohlsaat, appointed by President Teddy Roosevelt.

Periodic updates have focused on retaining the charm of this turn-of-the-century home, while incorporating contemporary conveniences. The interior has Midwest Prairie architecture with beamed 12` ceilings span a Great Room and spacious dining room on the first floor.

The Great Room features two sitting areas, a large fireplace, and an HDTV home theatre. The adjoining outdoor porch affords stunning views of the lake, set off by perennial beds and a sweeping lawn.

The porch has a table that seats six, and is filled with comfortable wicker furniture, including the original porch swing. The house has a large fully appointed kitchen with updated appliances, a double oven, microwave oven, 28 cu. ft side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, plus breakfast table in a sitting area with two easy chairs, oversized antique desk, cable TV, and Franklin fireplace. Adjoining the kitchen, there is a butler’s pantry with wet bar, a powder room, and a utility room with washer and dryer.

An outdoor multi-burner gas grill is available on the back patio. The house has central air conditioning. The upstairs features another open sitting area with large screen cable TV, DVD, VCR, and handsome fireplace, as well as a large desk with computer and high speed internet access. There are six bedrooms that sleep (14), and three full baths.
