Come and truly Get-Away-From-It-All at Lakewood. With a 6,500 square foot main house available now and a 3 bedroom guest house available summer 2015 and a setting like no other, you and yours will make memories that will last a lifetime. Main house sleeps 20, guest house will sleep 12.
Located just 90 minutes from Chicago and between Milwaukee and Lake Geneva, Lakewood is easily reached whether you are staying for a long weekend getaway or a full vacation. Lakewood is a 1,000 acre property with a private 26 acre lake nestled inside. Depending on the season, the lake is great for a swim, a float, a sail, a kayak, a paddleboard, fishing, some broom ball or ice skating. The surrounding land offers plenty of outdoor activities during any season. Don’t worry if you forgot to bring something as you are only a ten minute drive from downtown Mukwonago with great local shops as well as a familiar Walgreens and Walmart.
The “Big House” at Lakewood is designed to please, with floor to ceiling windows across the expanse of the vaulted ceiling double great room to give you beautiful views of the lake. With eight bedrooms including two on the first floor, there is plenty of room at the Big House. An adjacent “Guest House” will reopen for the summer of 2015 to increase sleeping capacity and provide space for the family to spread out.
The kitchen is fully furnished and equipped, should you choose to cook inside rather than on the two gas grills outside. The kitchen features a 60” Wolf gas stove complete with two full size ovens, six burners, and a double griddle. A stainless steel refrigerator/freezer and stainless steel dishwasher are also in the main kitchen. There is a second refrigerator/freezer in the laundry room.
GREAT ROOM FEATURES:
The great room is arranged into multiple conversation settings with the mid-century furniture. There is a massive arched sofa, a coffee table, and two leather chairs near the fireplace and tv. Another area provides for conversation and viewing through the large floor to ceiling windows. And just off the great room are the sliding glass door to the screened in porch (a terrific evening spot) and the door to the game room.
BEDROOM & BATHROOM HIGHLIGHTS:
There are two bedrooms on the first floor with a full bath in between equipped with a walk in shower. There is a pocket door to close off the bedrooms from the main floor. The second floor has a similar two bedroom setup with a sliding door for additional quiet but with a shower/tub combination as well as four additional bedrooms along a balconied hallway with two more bathrooms between each pair of rooms. Eight bedrooms in total with four full bathrooms are currently equipped to sleep 20 in beds.
PATIO AND YARD HIGHLIGHTS:
The patio off of the screened in porch offers a dining table as well as a fire pit for evening fun. Wonderful views of the entire lake abound. Just a few steps around the corner and near an entrance to the house through the oversized first floor laundry room is an additional patio with two full sized picnic tables and two gas grills. This is a great spot for feeding family members who wish to stay in their bathing suits in the summer without having to worry about messing up the dining or breakfast rooms. Across the yard is a backstop and baseball ‘diamond’ for those so inclined. Just up the hill from there is a fenced-in tennis court with a half-court basketball setup.
BOATHOUSE AND BEACH HIGHLIGHTS:
The two story boathouse features a screened-in porch as well as access to an outdoor deck overseeing the beach and lake. The view from the deck is a view like no other when you realize you are in the midst of a private paradise. The beach below is an ideal spot for sunbathing, kicking back, and for the younger set to play in the sand and shallow water. There is a dock with a built in bench seat that provide some great fishing as swimming opportunities. Launching kayaks, canoes, “Lily pad” rafts, Sunfish sailboats, rowboats, etc. from the beach and pier makes enjoying the full lake experience unforgettable.
Owners who take pride in the property and strive to provide a great experience for our guests. We are happy to help with everything from horseback riding to restaurant recommendations. Thank you for considering Lakewood!
We are the First, Second, Third and Fourth generation of a large, Chicago based family. Deep Family roots pull us from all over the US and Ireland to Lakewood Farms in Mukwonago, Wisconsin.
David O'Bryan purchased this estate in 1937
We have grown up, worked on and enjoyed Lakewood Farm for 75 years. Only 1 1/4 hours from O'Hare International Airport, it is as much a part of our DNA as our heritage. The farm offers a unique, private destination for family adventure, family milestones and family reunions.
At any given time of the day, we sit at the top of the hill and will see family members swimming across the lake, a sailboat heeling in the wind, kayakers catching turtles in Turtle Heaven, row boats with fishing poles casting and catching, kids romping on the 'lily pad' off the pier, and sunbathers enjoying the beach. The 'Big House' features a great room with eight picture windows overlooking the lake, kitchen with eat-in breakfast room, dining room, game room, mud/laundry room. 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath and two half baths are on the first floor. 6 bedrooms and 3 baths are on the second floor. Most of our memories are made outside where children can hike to roller-coaster or caterpillar hills, or back to the Mukwonago River or the sand pit or to the little barns or through the fields and trails...picking berries, catching toads, collecting wild flowers and taking pictures of our favorite Lakewood spots. Sledding in the winter, hiking through the woods to see the fall colors, playing softball on the baseball diamond or tennis at the tennis court provide plenty of alternative activities for everyone.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had an amazing week that we will always remember.
