CARMEL, N.Y. -- "Living in Zen" is how Maria Makaj describes her listing in Carmel.
Makaj’s listing at 235 Tibet Drive includes three bedrooms, three baths and 2,360 square feet of living space in a Contemporary design. The lakefront property offers year-round views of Lake Tibet with a wraparound deck and lush, private grounds. Makaj is listing the property for $489,000.
“It’s really tranquil and serene,’’ said Makaj, an agent for Houlihan Lawrence in Yorktown. “It’s the best priced lakefront home on the market. The architecture of the main living space is beautiful. It has high ceilings, rustic beams and a lot of character.”
The gourmet kitchen features a center island, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a walk-in pantry. The main living space is anchored by a floor to ceiling stone fireplace. Soaring ceilings and exposed beams add to the home’s character.
The finished lower includes a family room, office and bathroom. Doors lead to a patio that overlooks the lake.
The home’s large windows and open layout allow for natural light to stream through the entire home. “That’s what I really love about it,’’ Makaj said. “It’s so bright and cheerful. Even on a dreary day it’s very bright.”
The lake offers instantaneous recreation. Homeowners can canoe, fish and ice skate just steps from the property. There is also a swimming section for area homeowners nearby.
Makaj said the home works well as a primary residence or a weekend retreat for New York City residents. It has functioned as both since it was built in 1982.
The house is close to the Taconic Parkway, and also close to Fahnestock State Park where you can hike the Appalachian Trail. The largest Buddha in the Western Hemisphere is housed at nearby Chuang Yen Monastery.
