Upstairs is a third private bedroom and full bathroom, accessible by an open staircase with views of the living space below. The ground level is fully finished, with an exercise room, a lounge with wet bar and a third full bathroom.

A spacious screened porch begs for dining al fresco, and extends into a wraparound deck that offers fantastic lake views and hovers above idyllic perennial gardens. The private lake is accessible to HOA members and their guests only. This non-motorboat lake is ideal for paddle boarding and canoeing, sunbathing and floating.

Centrally situated, this property is within convenient striking distance of key towns, like Livingston Manor, Callicoon and Narrowsburg, as well as hot spots like those featured in this Escape Brooklyn article. Convenient to the city and to outdoor adventures.

The adjoining property, Magnolia Carriage House, is also on the market by the same seller and broker; the sales of both homes may be combined.
The Magnolia Lakehouse is flanked by separate listing, Magnolia Carriage House on an adjoining parcel. The two houses are situated on two separate parcels and may be purchased separately or together. There is currently a catwalk connecting the two, which will be removed in the event of separate purchases.
Both houses, 13 Indian Lake (Magnolia Carriage House) and 15 Indian Lake (Magnolia Lake House) are on municipal water/sewer, are on separate deeds with separate taxes and electric meters and are only connected by the catwalk. Both the lake house and carriage house have been used as a short-term rental through Red Cottage Inc. who has pre-extended an invite for the new owner(s) to continue renting.
