Lake Geneva, Wisconsin had its largest residential real estate sale on record recently; the historical Hillcroft Estate at W3245 Snake Road, originally owned by the Wrigley family, sold for $11.2 million dollars. Julie Austin and Jack Baker of Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group represented the buyer. This beautiful 20-acre Lake front property with 415 feet of north shore frontage, has so many original unique characteristics that the O’Neill family beautifully maintained over the years. Grand estates like the Hillcroft, stand alone as one of Lake Geneva’s finest properties. Historically, lake front estates on Geneva Lake have been summer retreats for the neighboring states. The new owner, was looking for a unique property that would remind him of his childhood days when he was spending many summers here on his grandfather’s property. Furthermore, they wanted to create the same kind of memories for their grandchildren. Properties of this caliber are getting harder to find. We are confident that this estate will live on for many years to come. 


The Lake Geneva area is a very well-known vacation retreat. Many people come to Lake Geneva for several reasons one of which is to enjoy the small-town atmosphere, the quaint shops, golfing, and of course the 5400 acre beautiful Geneva Lake.
