Luxury lakefront living with enough space to socially distance yourself from everything and everybody, even your guests and family if you desire :).

Located on Lake Owassa, amongst the forests, lakes and state parks, this spacious house has 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, two office areas, 1 living room next to an open kitchen, another living room with a fireplace and bar room.

Although, the house is located only 90 minutes away from NYC, it is far away from the noise and stress of the city.

The space
Perfect for a memorable getaway with your family or friends. Spend the days swimming or exploring the lake on a kayak or paddleboat. Spend the evenings grilling, watching the sunset on the patio or hanging out by the firepit.

Lots of outdoor areas to socialize or to spend time alone. For the kids there is a playground with two swings and a slide on the top level. There are lake toys and floaties in the lake shed. This includes 2 convertible kayaks that can hold either 1 or 2 people each (great for 1 adult and 1 kid) and a paddleboat that can seat 4, perfect for cruising around the lake and checking out the wildlife in the lake, or stopping by the community swim float.

If you want to spend time on land, there are two hammocks, one by the lake and one in front of the house by the firepit. There is a gazebo on the side of the house which is great for sipping coffee and reading a book in the mornings. There is a large deck overlooking the lake with a grill which is perfect to gather for an afternoon barbecue or sunset dinner.

The house itself also has lots of space. There are 5 bedrooms. One master on the upper level and three downstairs, along with a play room. There is another "hidden" bedroom in the loft, along with a peloton bike, for those who need to keep their steak going ;). There are two office spaces. One on the main floor next to the master and one in the loft.

For resting and relaxation, there is a main living room overlooking the lake. There is another sitting room with french sliding doors and a fireplace so you can feel like you are outside in the forest while sitting by the fireplace. Last, there is a game room with a TV, card table and bar, a place for the grown ups to play in while the kids are asleep.

There is also a two car covered garage which guests can use to park.

Where you’ll be

Newton, New Jersey, United States

Located on a pristine and private lake in Sussex county, NJ, right between Bear Swamp Wildlife Area and Stokes National Park. Lake access is restricted to members only and is strictly controlled, which means the water is clean, stocked with fish and the noise level is at a minimum.

There are plenty of things to do all year around. There are two ski mountains within a 35 minute drive (Shawnee and Mountain Creek). There are numerous hiking trails and campgrounds in the area, including the Appalachian trail which is only 10 minutes away. In the Summer, you can spend the entire day on the lake, either swimming and diving off the community swim float or taking the kayaks out and exploring the wildlife aroung the "island", inlet or outlet marshes. The Delaware river and Poconos mountains are only minutes away, offering a variety of outdoor activities.

In the surrounding areas, there are other lakes to explore, such as Culver Lake or Kittatinny Lake. Nearby towns include Branchville, Newton and a little further away is Millford, PA which has some great dining options and is worth the drive.
