About Jolene Durelli
My name is Jolene and I grew up in New York City and dreamed about a lakehouse as a little girl. I wanted a place that would be fun and relaxing in the daytime, yet quiet and serene in the evening. This lakehouse is my dream. My family and I have spent many happy hours swimming and boating here.
Jolene Durelli purchased this house in 2006
Why Jolene Durelli chose Harwinton
My son caught his first fish here! And my daughters loved chasing minnows along the beach. We have celebrated many festive family occasions including birthdays, graduations, reunions and wedding anniversaries. Everyone enjoys the property. Because we are located at the west side of the lake, we have spectacular lake views without our homes blocking or distracting the view.
What makes this house unique
The house sits on a raised double lot affording a panoramic view of the lake with plenty of room for lawn parties. Wonderful older trees provide shade in selected areas.
