Once in a great while, a property is presented to the market that is so known, so revered, so celebrated, that no superlative description is required. These are the legacy properties that occupy not only the finest lots on the best streets and feature the highest grade architecture and finishes, these are the iconic properties that are so respected because of both what they are and what they represent. Today, for what is believed to be only the third time in its 115 year history, Glanworth Gardens, the preeminent 40 acre estate on the premier lake in the Midwest, is being offered for sale.

In the early 1900s, famed Boston architect Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge, was charged with designing a new lakeside retreat for the Harris Family, the founding family of Harris Bank and Trust. The site chosen for this new vacation home was a bucolic, undulating lakefront parcel on the north shore, where Snake Road dipped and weaved across the hilly countryside just beyond The Newport Of The West, the city of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The Olmsted Brothers provided the landscaping design, replete with ponds and gardens, meandering pathways and resting perches, all leading visitors through the dense native woods to the level shoreline.

Ascending the grand stairway you’ll appreciate the closer look at the thirty-foot great room ceiling with its intricate plaster and piping. The primary bedroom hallway heads to the west, with several guest sweets and the ultimate primary suite with fireplace, dressing room and updated full bath. The guest wing contains more lakeside bedrooms, most with en suite baths, bringing the total bedroom count in this home to thirteen. Additional property structures include a four bedroom guest house, carriage house, staff offices, boathouse, the children’s village and more.
