Crescent Beach house description

Love at first sight! Supreme sunrises with sunlight flooding through a wall of windows overlooking the largest bay on Lake Ontario. Boat or drive to our favorite spots... Gastronomic delights such as Lancaster's 'Helluva Good' Cheese Stand with XXX sharp cheddar and homemade fruit pies; Orchard View Farm market with frozen custard swirled with your choice of fresh fruit; fine dining at Baystreet Hotel or great burgers with live music on the outside deck of Papa Joes. Wine tasting at wineries throughout the Finger Lakes region; rainy day visit to a Rochester museum or spa; day trip to Niagara Falls, fabulous bargain finds at local antique stores, Sunday concerts on the lawn at the Sodus Point Lighthouse museum, free outdoor movies on the local baseball diamond... the list goes on.

We've pampered this vintage 1952 cottage. Adorned with period proper treasures: rattan sectional seating circa 1950, sea captain's trunk stores extra bedding, nautical bedroom set of solid rock maple, Heywood Wakefield dining ensemble seats 10... this charmer is updated for aesthetic sensibilities. Gorgeous travertine marble complements the original heart pine flooring throughout, cathedral ceiling in Great Room lends an airy openness that accents the hand-built lake stone fireplace, kitchen with vaulted ceiling, granite counter tops and breakfast bar, newly remodeled bathrooms with tumbled marble and Kohler fixtures, ceiling fans to catch the breezes, plenty of outdoor furniture to lounge on, dine, sit at the bar and gaze at the most spectacular view on Sodus Bay! What's not to love?

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: Our family includes Cooper, our standard poodles who didn't make it into the photo but are very much in our lives. Aurora owns a day spa, Fred is the CEO for a behavioral health company, and Cody recently graduated from Towson University in Baltimore. Living on the Chesapeake Bay for the past 26 years we thrive on the unique beauty of America's waterways and waterfront living. Considering retirement years we knew that we'd want to go where our hearts are, in upstate New York. With Rochester and Syracuse within an hour we can fly in, or partake of the city for a great restaurant, art, or shopping. Vermont,Montreal and Toronto a days drive away! Come share our dream !!

              Why the Owner Chose Crescent Beach:
              We have been coming to Sodus Bay for the last 17 years. Re-uniting with family and bringing in-laws and friends we get to share our love for the perfect place to go back in time. The towns, the beach, the neighbors and even the weather seem to be the way I remember it from childhood. That is, a slower pace where the person behind the cash register stops to chat; real peace and quiet with thousands of stars; no need to lock the doors; warm sunny days with low humidity; wild flowers bursting with color by the side of the road...Of course there's endless water from the Bay to Lake Ontario to the Finger Lakes and the Erie Canal.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Having a spectacular view of Sodus Bay from sunrise to moonrise is unbelievably joyful. You know you're in the right place and it's always the right time. Of course our company often like to fish off our dock which means dinner is super fresh. Just a short way around the Bay we find the best homemade fruit pies we've ever eaten. My cousins can be found at the Sodus Golf Club-gorgeous rolling green acres, while my son joins the poker games there twice a week. The younger set are happy at the miniature golf course and we're all up for one of the local ice cream spots. Superlatives abound!
