Five bedrooms and four bathrooms allow everyone in the house to be comfortable with space and privacy. The main level is home to the house’s primary bedroom, with an ensuite. Stairs lead up to the great room, featuring a grand wood-burning fireplace, wet bar, second-story deck, projector, skylights, and cathedral ceilings. Watch your favorite action flick, at full-volume surround-sound – while at the other end of the house, guests could be quietly reading a book. On the opposite side of the home from the great room, the guest wing has three additional bedrooms, a full bathroom and a den. For those in need of additional space, the den could easily be converted into a sixth bedroom.

In the renovated open kitchen, find custom cabinets installed along with a large white oak island; with maximum counter space, everyone can enjoy spending time together while cooking, perfect for holidays and fun filled Upstate weekends. Downstairs, the home not only has a large two car garage, but also another large room ready to be turned into a personal gym, shop space, or in-law suite.

Outside, escape to your favorite book on one of two large decks, a hammock in the beautiful garden, or the bluestone fire pit. The property is perched on a knoll with southwestern views of the Silver Lake Valley and Bovina below from the second-floor 23×11 deck. It sits elevated on the land, giving a grandiose feel as visitors make their way up the winding driveway.

The surrounding 11.9 acres of wooded land completely hides the Tunis Lake House from street view. Spend quiet mornings exploring the land’s multiple trails toward the all-season flowing stream that passes right through the property.

Located just 30 minutes to Bellayre, and close to snowmobile trails, Tunis Lake House offers a year-round Upstate paradise. Sitting on the border of the beloved towns of Andes and Bovina, and less than 15 minutes from Delhi and Margaretville, this wonderful community beckons outdoor adventure, small-town life and lazy days at the lake.
