Property details

Historic Fern Hall Grandeur with this graciously appointed residence offers an opportunity to own an architectural historic masterpiece. This magnificent stone and glass estate sits on a gorgeous manicured lakefront property on more than 100 acres, with a boathouse along the lake's shores of Crystal Lake; with private dock & guest house. Operated as a fine dining restaurant, bar, Bed and Breakfast, clubhouse, and a scenic 9 hole executive golf course, par 35. Presents numerous doglegs, bunkers, pond and irrigation system. Supplies picturesque scenes from every window, from expansive Elk Mountain views to spectacular Crystal Lake views. The 12,000 square foot estate features two floors of living with soaring ceilings. A floor plan that provides abundant places to enjoy these calming lake views. At the top of the staircase is one of the earliest known electric elevators. The spacious bedrooms all have walk-in closets and private bathrooms. There are smaller bedrooms that were used by members of the Johnson’s staff, and these quarters have smaller bathrooms as well as access to the back staircase. In addition to the original marble, subway tiles, herringbone floors and porcelain soap dishes, the bathrooms are notable for the toilets and stand up showers, both anomalies during the early part of the 20th century. A landscaped circular motor court drive, a classic colonnade entrance creates an impressive introduction to this home. Palatial design combines with magnificent outdoor living. The grounds, home & setting cannot be duplicated. This will include 50% of the subsurface mineral rights, most of the furnishings. It will be sold as a turn key business.
