More renovations taking place every day! Three weeks left in August, so take a look, be in touch, and make this lake house your destination!

All season lakefront house with permanent, solid-state dock, outdoor fireplace, bricked patio on the lake with a full, double-headed, outdoor private shower. Two decks facing the lake, first floor open plan with sliding glass doors onto second story deck, lower deck off of the T.V. room, just steps down to landscaped patio and dock with two outdoor gas grills.

Indoor gas stove, comfortable furniture, lots of space with views of the lake from kitchen, living area, two of the four bedrooms, and TV room.

The stable, composite dock with four cleats supports large boats and no worry about wobble or wood slivers. Have dinner out by the lake on the dock, or on the stone patio, or sit with a glass of wine or scotch at the end of day by the outdoor full, wood-buring fireplace. Grape vines provide privacy and atmosphere ... not to mention organic, Concord grapes if you visit us at the right time of the year!

Wash off children or the dog from the lake under a double-headed outdoor shower in beautiful pergola, next to fireplace.

Inside features broad area for dining and living room relaxation. Four bedrooms, contemporary kitchen, open area for dining and relaxing, T.V.s in finished area in the basement and bedrooms (portable to main area too, there is an additional cable connection), two decks, beautiful sunset and all the fun of the lake, resort area, wineries, restaurants or stay at home evening. Enjoy the glorious sunset in all seasons.

All of the special amenities: indoor gas stove, permanent dock, spacious outdoor patio with fireplace, pergola with a double headed shower, two level outdoor decks, two outdoor grills, an Italian-FingerLakes landscaping make this house unique in both features and themes on Keuka Lake.

When I stay there in warm months, I never use the indoor shower, designed for two to share: spouses, parent-child, kids just in from the lake, or man/woman and dog! Absolutely unique feature! If you are concerned about the 1.5 bath, and a summer renter, don't be! This is better than another indoor shower!...moreless

              Location

              You are in the heart of wine country and the beautiful Finger Lakes!

              New York Wine and Culinary Center

              Women's Hall of Fame and Seneca Falls

              Watkins Glen Raceway

              Boating, fishing, hiking, water skiing and tubing, swimming, relax on the dock, patio, two decks overlooking the lake or in front of the outdoor fireplace.

              Enjoy an outdoor shower with temperature control to 120f, curtain enclosures, and two full-sized shower heads. In the summer, most people don't even bother with the indoor shower but prefer to enjoy the beauty, freedom and freshness of the outdoors. Experience it with your spouse, child or dog, because with two full-sized shower heads, no one is waiting for the other one to get out of the way! Step down from the shower into the warmth of summer sun, or in cooler moments, in front of the full-sized outdoor fireplace. Lake front experience and views together with grapevine fencing completes the Italianate-FingerLakes landscape.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: All my life, growing up in Rochester, I wanted to have a house on one of the Finger Lakes. I am so fortunate now to have one, and we are teaching our children, 12-23, water safety, responsibility, care and upkeep of the house. Taxes and other expenses require us to rent it out. I am glad to share this beautiful, fun home with other people and families who enjoy the beauty of the Finger Lakes.

              Why the Owner Chose Penn Yan:
              The natural beauty is astounding and its proximity to wineries accentuates the fun! Mostly I just enjoy relaxing with a glass of wine, by myself, with my family or entertaining friends for dinner on the porch looking out at the lake.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The new outdoor large wood-burning fireplace and pergola with two-headed shower makes this place irresistible! Indoor gas fireplace, full kitchen, quality utensils and dish ware. It is a great house for people of all ages because of the new dock, boats, two full decks (one for the adults and one for the kids), a complete house with bedrooms and good furniture, new mattresses and linens,stylish but comfortable, gas stove for cool nights in summer, all day in winter. All in all, a relaxing and fun place.
