Major Lodge Style!

Major Lodge Style…
that must be what M.L.S. stands for here, right?
This amazing Adirondack style home
is located in the neighboring town of Bedford, New York.
Several years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting this house,
before the current owners purchased it.
When this property reappeared on the market, I couldn’t wait
to check out the photos.  The rumors have it
that Steven Gambrel
was hired by the current owners to redesign the whole space.
I can not attest to the veracity of this, but I can tell you
the house looks completely different
from when I last viewed it in person.
The only remaining decor is the mural
on the dining room ceiling
(3rd photo down) which depicts the surrounding lakes outside.
The main house contains a movie theater,
billiards room and wine cellar.
Included on this lakefront property are a beautiful pool,
pool house, outdoor fireplace, play house and gym,
complete with indoor basketball court.
Plus, if you buy this house,
we would be neighbors.
{I could stop by and drink your wine.}

  5. I thought from the 4th picture it was a hotel!! Major lodge style is right. Do they have a guest house or garage apartment I could buy instead? Maybe I could rent the playhouse!

  21. I love the grand scale of EVERYTHING in that house! If I lived there, you could come by any time and have your pick in my wine cellar 😉 Right now my "wine cellar" is the Cuisinart 6 bottle wine fridge- not much to get excited about in there!

    Goodness! I like how the lodge look isn't too overwhelming and I'm glad he kept the mural. This house is in need of some true personality though! A job only the new owners could accomplish…luckies!!

    My favorite thing about this home is how non, well, lodgey … it feels for this type of residence. The decor is understated and simple, but still lovely (dare I say classy?) and slightly rustic at the same time. Great feature!

    hi there I saw you over at Ally's have been meaning to come over.. re the house I am sorry but no the interior is a bit much for me. Too much cabinetry. I might break it. And I certainly don't have enough crockery to fit in there. But the exterior is amazing and what a beautiful location. All that is lovely about the US northeast. xoxo
