Mahopac New York Community - Real Estate & Homes for Sale

Mahopac is a hamlet in the town of Carmel in Putnam County, New York. Is 47 miles north of New York City, Mahopac is located on US Route 6 on the county's southern central border with Westchester County. Mahopac and Mahopac Falls have played central roles in the history of Putnam County.

Mahopac was primarily a summer resort until after World War II, when nearby highways such as the Taconic State and Saw Mill River parkways began to make travel by automobile convenient. With the passing of the last passenger service to Mahopac in 1959, the hamlet evolved into a year-round community, many of its residents making the commute to New York City.

The hamlet of Mahopac encircles a picturesque 587-acre lake, from which it draws its name. The lake contains three islands, Fairy, Petre, and Canopus, all privately owned. Fairy Island sports multiple homes accessible via a short causeway; Petre boasts a single Frank Lloyd Wright-designed residence, the A. K. Chahroudi Cottage; and Canopus has undeveloped land available for purchase. Boating, fishing, jet skiing, water skiing and other water sports are permitted on the lake. Slips and support services are provided by two marinas.

Besides Lake Mahopac, other lakes within the Mahopac include Kirk Lake, Lake Casse, Bloomer Pond, Glencoma Lake, Lake Secor and Teakettle Spout Lake.

Mahopac has a 33,000-square-foot (3,100 m2) library, featuring multiple reading rooms overlooking Lake Mahopac, abundant computers, a law library and conference rooms.
