About 50 Ny 28

The late nineteenth century and early twentieth in the Adirondack Park of Upstate NY marked a storied era of Great Camp construction by wealthy families and barons from the big cities of New York, Philadelphia and Boston. These magnificent estates were built on a scale not seen before, and not seen since. Very rarely does one of the few Adirondack Great Camps become available. Now is just one of those unique opportunities, as The Albedor on Fourth Lake in the Central Adirondacks is being offered for sale. The historic Albedor was built for a wealthy New York City Publisher/Ambassador and his family in 1927. The name Albedor was derived from the names of the owner’s daughters: Aline, Betty and Dorothy. Set majestically on 17 private, wooded acres and perched above the almost 1,000 feet of uninterrupted lake front shoreline, the setting is unlike anything in the region. Enter the estate through 2 stone pillars, and to the completely renovated, four-season Carriage House with 3 bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a custom gourmet kitchen with hand crafted cabinets, high-end stainless steel appliances, granite, custom lighting and the original sliding doors on hefty wrought iron rails. There is a large living room, basement, garage and hot tub. As one continues on the private road there is a volleyball court, and then the road meanders to the large parking circle which is behind the Main House. From here enter the Main House, which is a 17,000 sqft. waterfront mansion built to the highest and most exacting building requirements. 70 men from all over the region assembled to build this masterpiece. There are 14 bedrooms set across 3 floors of this sprawling Adirondack Great Camp. There are 12 and one half bathrooms, with most of the bedrooms being en suite. The Main House is 97 feet by 103 feet, with a beautiful slate roof, multiple porches and patios on various levels, and an abundance of outdoor covered and non-covered entertaining and relaxation areas. To illustrate the scale of this project and the construction, over 5 tons of dynamite were used to break through the rock and cliffs to create the Main House envelope. Over 588 tons of stone was used, 145 tons of slate for the roofs, over 407,000 board feet of lumber was used, 28,000 bricks and over 7,700 bags of cement. From the moment you walk into the Main House you feel a sense of pause, of grandeur…of class. The Old World elegance and the Gilded Age opulence, is evident in the craftsmanship and artisan details throughout. From the contiguous stone used in the fireplace in the Great Room, to the built-in bookshelves in the study, to the beautiful fir hardwoods floors…quality and grandeur is apparent in every detail, in every feature of this spectacular estate. There is a lifestyle available for everyone in this part of the state and country. Steps to area hiking, backpacking, world-class boating and the lake lifestyle, kayaking and sailing and watersports, to the regional arts centers, shopping and varied cuisine, to 12 miles of interconnected waterway to explore with being on the Fulton Chain of Lakes. There is something for everyone in this region, and this property makes for a magnificent home base for that exploration. The property is also easily accessible by car, train, airport and private aviation. This magnificent Adirondack Great Camp and Estate is truly one-of-a-kind. This is a rare opportunity to own an estate of this scale, grandeur and historical import on one of the Adirondack Park’s most desirable lakes.
