Home For Sale: 510 Sauk Trail, Fontana
New Lakefront Listing in Fontana
First time on the market in 45 years
By Wendy Murphy, Real Estate Broker with d'aprile properties
The south west side of Geneva Lake is known to be a social side of the lake. It's home to iconic restaurants Gordy's and Chucks as well as the infamous, Abbey Resort and Avani Spa. It's also on this side of the lake where you'll find the Lake Geneva Yacht Club, Abbey Springs and Big Foot Country Club. The shore path, which is a 26 mile walkway that wraps around the entire lake, is what connects this home to many of these destinations.
I recently listed the home at 510 Sauk Trail in Fontana for $1,195,000 and it has access to a boat slip and jet ski ramp. It's situated in the highly desirable Indian Hills subdivison with a neighborhood lakefront park and swim pier. Ryan D'Aprile, owner of my brokerage company, spent summers in Indian Hills throughout his life says: "It's an extremely family friendly neighborhood... Some of my closest friends to this day are the ones I made on the lake." Ryan has such an affinity for the neighborhood that he purchased a home in Indian Hills in 2004 so he could continue the summer tradition with his daughters. Ryan says "Lake Geneva is now in their blood too and it’s a beautiful family tradition.”
Indian Hills is an amazing neighborhood with social gatherings throughout the summer. It’s here where kids long to be… where they make “lake friends” that last a lifetime.
510 Sauk Trail has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and sits on the lake with breathtaking views throughout the house. With two levels of outdoor lakefront decks, and an open floor plan, this home has incredible indoor/outdoor flow. The main part of the home was built in 1935 and has hardwood floors, a beautiful wood burning fireplace, bay window seat, and french doors, as you might expect from that time period. A two story lakeside addition was built in the 1990s and includes a sun filled family room with cathedral ceilings and skylights, dining area, a sitting area in the turret overlooking the lake and well as a finished walkout lower level with a spacious master bedroom.
You'll find this home to have low Fontana taxes, due to the lower mil rate in the village and will be positioned on the sunny side of the lake where loads of natural light will fill the home throughour the day. This is the first time this home has been on the market in 45 years and we’re looking for a family to enjoy it for 45 more.
