Browse Popular Lake Communities in Mahopac
Summer homes on Mahopac Lake have been popular with NYC residents since the 1800s but the area has long been a choice for year-round living. Some popular communities located around the lake include Mahopac Point, Mahopac Hills and Mahopac Woods. The lake contains three privately owned islands, Fairy, Petre, and Canopus, some with remarkable homes like the Frank Lloyd Wright house on Petre Island. The island rumored to have been purchased by Angelina Jolie in November of 2013 for her husband Brad Pitt for his 50th birthday. This story turned out to be false.
Frank Lloyd Wright House on Lake Mahopac
In 1951, A.K. Chahroudi had a summer cottage built by Frank Lloyd Wright on Petre Island in Lake Mahopac. He also had Wright draw up plans for a much larger residence on the same island. The residence was never built. The island was bought by Joe Massaro and his wife. The construction took place between 2003 to 2007 and was finally finished - adhering almost completely to Wright's original plans. See photo's here: Frank Lloyd Wright on Lake Mahopac
Lake Mahopac: Old time New York hot spot
Tourists and pleasure seekers have been traveling to Lake Mahopac to enjoy lakeside living for almost two centuries. In 1843 they came by stagecoach to stay in the original Mahopac Hotel. In 1849, they rode the Harlem Railroad as far as Croton Falls and then took carriages to the resort. But in 1871, when the NYC and Northern Railroad built its tracks all the way to Carmel, wealthy New Yorkers began flocking to the pristine lake, buying land and building their summer homes on its shores.
