Wikiosco

Wikiosco, Algonquin Indian for Home on Beautiful Waters, lives up to its name with commanding views of Lake George in the Southern Adirondacks. Built in 1895, Wikiosco is a spectacular example of Tudor Revival architecture and the grand mansions built during the heyday of the aptly named “Millionaire’s Row” on the western shore of Lake George. The 20,000+/- square foot three story main residence offers seven bedrooms, twelve bathrooms and seven fireplaces. Original carved oak doors, decorative carved built-ins, oak beams, stain-glassed windows, crown moldings and wainscoting abound throughout this historic architectural showpiece. The exterior lower story is a stunning combination of stucco and rough cut granite with upper story showcasing artist markers, decorative half-timber framing and gable dormers. Immaculate grounds offer 6.27 acres of perennial gardens and lawns which slope gently down to the pool, dock and lake. With 545 feet of lake-frontage, Wikiosco offers widespread lake and mountain views as well as magnificent sun and moon rises over the lake.
