Previously inhabited by renowned New Jersey actress Lotta Crabtree, one of the most popular actresses in America during the California gold rush, this 1887-built mansion is one of the most significant waterfront homes on Lake Hopatcong.
Extensively renovated throughout the years while retaining its period charm, the 18-room Queen Anne style home was designed by architect Frank Furness and served as Lotta Crabtree’s summer residence.
Situated on almost an acre, the home is surrounded by a manicured landscape and has a circular driveway plus porte cochere.
Period features such as the 9 granite fireplaces, carved staircase, and some original stained-glass windows offer a glimpse of yesteryear beauty.
The home includes a foyer, billiards room, gourmet kitchen with a separate eating area, living room, and formal dining room.
The 8 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, plus one half-bathroom, showcase custom woodwork, hardwood floors, moldings, and coffered ceilings.
The 2000-square-foot sweeping verandas allow residents to admire the lake, while the docking area has a 400-foot waterfront with a cabana.
The property, located at 33 Edgemere Avenue, Mount Arlington Borough, New Jersey, is listed for $3,499,999.
