Set on 2.36 acres of property in the historic village of Galena, Ohio is a gorgeous lakefront mansion with unimaginable views. Galena, known for its nature-feel, welcomes tourists and locals to join in on activities such as hiking, cycling, fishing, and canoeing, as per their website Village of Galena. For those looking for a slow-paced lifestyle, they suggest strolling the Hoover Mudflats Boardwalk, learning about the town's extensive history, bird watching, or simply loafing at one of their beautiful parks.

This Galena mansion was built by Kevin Knight in 2014, according to the listing on Realtor, who is known for his retreat-like estates. This one is no exception; its design, spa features, and incredible location keep residents feeling like they are in the Hamptons without the New York traffic. At a little over $2.8 million, wait until you see why this massive Ohio mansion with lakefront views is worth every penny.

An unmatched lakefront view

A major selling point for this residence is its 591-foot shoreline on the Hoover Reservoir, as noted by Realtor. The peninsula location offers sweeping views of the lake, uninterrupted by other homes, structures, or even trees. The home's open floor plan and large windows lend themselves to the lakefront experience, making it feel as though you are right on the water from some vantage points. Down at the lake, this property includes a boat dock, a shed for water toys, and a fireplace with plenty of seating options only feet away from the water. Tenants can easily grab a kayak, a canoe, or a paddleboard and take some time to relax on the lake at any time.

Apart from the lake, this home features other activity areas all over the property. From the 11 by 47-foot bocce court to the huge indoor/outdoor entertainment shed, the owners of this extravagant mansion will never run out of fun things to do.

Bedrooms and bathrooms you'll never want to leave

The Ohio property features four bedrooms and five bathrooms as well as four attached garage spaces, a full basement, a living room, a dining room, and three fireplaces, all configured around 6,104 square feet, as seen on the Realtor listing. The bedrooms, as is the case with the rest of the home, are outfitted in white farmhouse d├ęcor mixed with some beach house elements. Each of the rooms use light oak flooring complemented by white shiplap walls. Many windows adorn nearly all the walls allowing for a lot of natural light to bring out the best features of these bedrooms.

The five bathrooms all have their own charm using seemingly upcycled materials to tie in the theme. However, the primary bathroom is what really steals the show. A large soaking tub wrapped in metal sits in the corner of the room just neighboring a massive glass walk-in shower. Above the tub is a cool light fixture great for setting the mood for a relaxing bath. As with most bathrooms of this size, it features his and hers sinks that include their own adjustable standing mirrors. The owners of this home have everything they need for their perfect self-care day.

Keeping active at home

One of the best parts of this amazing estate is the main living room with two-story-high ceilings. As shown on the listing posted by Realtor, three walls are filled with large windows so you can see the water from any seat in the room. The room is currently furnished with one large L-shaped white couch and two smaller sofas to create a square of comfy seating options. It's the best place in the house to enjoy a cup of coffee while the morning sun warms your face, or to take a short afternoon nap.

The full basement features another sitting area for when you are feeling a little more active. The room in which it sits includes a card table, a ping pong table, two basketball games, a large television, and an arcade game. If you're really in the mood to sweat, the house has a gym as well. Take a short trip up the stairs to the main floor and you'll find a converted garage with everything you need to get in shape. The room is lined with yoga mats, weights, a pull-up bar, and other workout equipment. On a nice day, you can even open up the glass garage door to the basketball court just outside to play some ball.
