This lovely building,originally built early in the last century, so the exterior is reminiscent of a by-gone era on this famous Lake. Very recently the building has been fully restored, with particular attention paid to the finishing and architectural details of its period. An indoor pool, a fitness area, and secure underground parking have been added to the grounds, as well as direct elevator access to the apartment.
