Serene Lakefront Residence

For some, a trendy beach swarming with surfers and sunbathers is the place to be during the hot months of summer. For others, it’s a secluded escape miles away from any crowds. If you fall into the latter category, today’s home is for you.

Sited on a rocky outcropping hovering over Mystery Lake, this 20-acre property offers outstanding vistas and an incredibly private location. The five-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom home was built in 1971 by late actors Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy, who designed the residence to make the most of its scenic setting. The L-shaped pool — which almost appears to merge with the placid waters it’s perched over — is where you’d find us if we were lucky enough to own this tranquil estate.

Inside, we’re digging the home’s funky ’70s vibe, with high ceilings, skylights and walls of glass. According to The Wall Street Journal, the property’s current owners have updated the home over the years but have left the layout unchanged. We don’t blame them — nearly every room offers an ideal view of the pristine surroundings. Why mess with perfection?
