With the Adirondack Mountains on one side and Lake George on the other, the town of Hague, N.Y., is an idyllic escape from big city living. Here, a three-story lake house with large porches and a private dock encourages its owners to slow down and soak up the natural beauty.
The home was originally built in 1921, but extensive renovations has brought the space up to date for modern times while maintaining the home's historic character. The estate includes a three-story main residence and a charming carriage-turned-guest house.
Located on 25 acres of deeded land with its own 10-acre private lake, the Huston Family Estate offers unparalleled luxury in the heart of the pristine and mythic Chilko Valley in British Columbia, Canada.
