Historic Lake Geneva Estate For Sale

Has Ties to Chicago Brewing Tycoon and Beloved 4th Ward Alderman

SOLD: $6,750,000

Lake Geneva is home to some of the most magnificent estates that grace the shoreline of Geneva Lake. One of the most recognizable properties, Black Point Manor, has just been listed for sale at $6,950,000. This 10,800 square foot home with 5 Bedrooms and 10 bathrooms is set on five acres of woods and gardens and has 464 feet of level Geneva Lake frontage. 

What sets this property apart from the other incredible estates is that it is not only perfectly positioned on the sunny side of the lake and with panoramic views, but it is home to the historic Black Point Lagoon, as well.

Notable Chicagoans including brewing tycoon, Conrad Seipp, of the Seipp Brewing Co, were drawn to the property because they could moor their family’s fleet of steamers in the lagoon, providing a safe haven for the vessels and protecting them from the elements. During the winter, ice was harvested from the pristine waters of the lagoon to provide ice for their estates.

“It’s the only property of its kind on Geneva Lake.” says listing broker, Wendy Murphy of d’aprile properties. “The breathtaking views encompass both the ¾ acre lagoon and Geneva Lake. Words just can’t describe it’s beauty and rarity.”

The interior space of this home showcases incredible volume and scale and has a floorplan with indoor/outdoor flow. Lake views are captured from almost every room of the home and the layout was intended to have enough rooms to host large gatherings, yet allowing the family to feel comfortable with more intimate space for everyday use. 

There’s five ensuite bedrooms, including the master with a private bar and sitting room, ten bathrooms, a spectacular curved staircase, nine fireplaces and an expansive walk out lower level leading to the lakeside pool and cabana.  There’s a beach, four boat slips, two lifts and mail delivery by mailboat in the summer. Boasting panoramic views and privacy this incredible home was designed and built with the absolute finest finishes.
