This remarkable West Okoboji compound is a self-contained private resort made for entertaining with ease or for indulging in absolute escapism. The impeccably crafted estate combines for 150’ of prized Fairoaks Beach lakefront and nearly 1.5 acres under a canopy of oaks on nostalgic Lakeshore Drive, creating a once-in-a-lifetime legacy property. Thoughtful renovations bring modern amenities with a sophisticated elegance and capitalize on astounding panoramic views. Numerous decks, patios and porches, including two large spaces at water’s edge, offer unlimited lakeside fun and options for large parties or intimate gatherings, all while merging smoothly with the indoor living spaces.
Inside the main house, the impressive great room with dramatic vaulted ceilings, expansive windows and wood-burning fireplace flows seamlessly into an open and airy dream kitchen. Complete with an oversized island, professional-grade appliances and large butler’s pantry this kitchen will put a smile on any chef’s face. There are two luxurious master suites – one on the main level with access to the screened porch, and one on the second level with a fireplace and private deck. The three additional second-level bedrooms are all on the lakeshore side, and there’s a fantastic sunken bonus room for a possible play area, book nook or extra storage.
Next door in the 4 bedroom, 5.5 bath lakefront guest house is an open layout showcasing striking lake views and an idyllic three-season porch with a two-sided stone fireplace that also sets a wonderful scene for the dining room. There’s a main-level master suite as well as one in the lower level, which boasts tall ceilings, its own kitchen, an enclosed porch with a hot tub, and a huge family room with a wet bar great for billiards and game areas. The upper level features two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an extra sleeping room. This home also has a private gym in the garage. With three separate entrances, this home can accommodate any family plan with one access to the main house including the upper level and family room, one access to the lower-level suite ideal for a property caretaker, and one access to the gym.
Across the street is a massive, extra-deep, four-car garage with living quarters and abundant parking. With over 3,500 square feet there’s more than enough room for all of yours and your friends’ toys and hobbies. Other structures include a two-room toy house perfect for kids, with ample storage on the other side, and a heated single-car garage with a work room and a bathroom, an excellent space for a man cave. Manicured grounds with lush landscaping and similar yet unique details complement each building, tying this spectacular compound into one balanced design.
This incomparable property is the quintessential West Okoboji lakefront experience ready for you to create endless memories for all of today’s generations and generations to come.
