Major Lodge Style!






Major Lodge Style...
that must be what M.L.S. stands for here, right?

This amazing Adirondack style home
is located in the neighboring town of Bedford, New York.
Several years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting this house, 
before the current owners purchased it.  
When this property reappeared on the market, I couldn't wait 
to check out the photos.  The rumors have it
that Steven Gambrel 
was hired by the current owners to redesign the whole space.  
I can not attest to the veracity of this, but I can tell you 
the house looks completely different
from when I last viewed it in person.  
The only remaining decor is the mural
on the dining room ceiling 
(3rd photo down) which depicts the surrounding lakes outside.




The main house contains a movie theater, 
billiards room and wine cellar.




Included on this lakefront property are a beautiful pool, 
pool house, outdoor fireplace, play house and gym,
complete with indoor basketball court.



Plus, if you buy this house,
we would be neighbors.
{I could stop by and drink your wine.}

  5. I thought from the 4th picture it was a hotel!! Major lodge style is right. Do they have a guest house or garage apartment I could buy instead? Maybe I could rent the playhouse!

  18. MFAMB: The word on the street is that THIS is the Gambrel design...my wording may have been misleading!

  20. Love the outdoor space the best. The view is to die for!

  21. I love the grand scale of EVERYTHING in that house! If I lived there, you could come by any time and have your pick in my wine cellar ;) Right now my "wine cellar" is the Cuisinart 6 bottle wine fridge- not much to get excited about in there!

  24. Gorgeous! I would definitely throw a welcome to the neighborhood party for the owners in hopes of becoming BFF's.

    ReplyDelete

  27. That home is over the top incredible. One would never have to leave! Stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sweetie, if they put you being a neighbor in their advertising as incentive, it would start a bidding war! Beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would be so honoured if you came by and drank my wine. But, magnificent as it is, I couldn't live here - it would crush my inner peace with its opulence.

    ReplyDelete

  37. i love it and i'm not a lodgey type person. the kitchen, entryway and outdoor space-i can't even! thanks for showing us this great house-great that you actually got to see it in person too!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Goodness! I like how the lodge look isn't too overwhelming and I'm glad he kept the mural. This house is in need of some true personality though! A job only the new owners could accomplish...luckies!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. This is seriously the perfect home. Oh my goodness. I will be thinking about this house all day long. And you live in that gorgeous area? More pictures???

    ReplyDelete
  40. so that's a mural on the ceiling? Wasn't quite sure.

  49. My favorite thing about this home is how non, well, lodgey ... it feels for this type of residence. The decor is understated and simple, but still lovely (dare I say classy?) and slightly rustic at the same time. Great feature!

    ReplyDelete

  66. hi there I saw you over at Ally's have been meaning to come over.. re the house I am sorry but no the interior is a bit much for me. Too much cabinetry. I might break it. And I certainly don't have enough crockery to fit in there. But the exterior is amazing and what a beautiful location. All that is lovely about the US northeast. xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  67. I got stuck at the same point as Dreamer's Den and a couple of others: 3 refrigerators just make me want to laugh!!
    I'm grateful I don't have to clean this place.

    ReplyDelete

  71. I'm going to need that kitchen to be MINE. You could run a small and very efficient catering outfit from a kitchen like that.
