Ithaca house description

We call it POND VIEW it is a unique vacation place on 70 acres in the rolling hills of Spencer NY. It's a great place for 2-6 adults plus children. If you like nature and the outdoors, this is for you - very quiet, peaceful, private, at the end of a well-maintained 1/2 mile no-outlet road.

The 3-bedroom 1-bath house is completely remodeled inside, with refinished oak flooring and woodwork harvested from Pond View's trees. There are oriental rugs, antique furnishings, and quilts throughout. The house is fully stocked with cookware, dishes, sheets, towels, etc.

First floor has open floor plan; new kitchen includes breakfast bar made from a lightning-felled red oak from the top of the mountain. Large covered deck for eating, relaxing. Outside renovations are still underway. House is surrounded by beautiful ponds (total 5, largest 1 acre), meadows and woods.

House site is half-way up a mountain that rises to highest point in Tioga County (1600 feet). Over 2 miles of hiking trails (wide enough for SUV/4x4). Great fossil hunting on mountain. 3 ponds are stocked with bass - bring your fishing gear (catch and release). The grounds are frequently visited by wildlife (deer, turkeys, geese) and birdwatching.

Many attractions within easy drive: Finger Lakes wineries, state parks with waterfalls and hiking trails, Tioga Downs (harness racing, gaming), Corning Glass Museum, glider airplane rides in Elmira (soaring capital of eastern US), antique shops, etc. Spencer has a good grocery store, gas station, bank, and most basics, along with a golf course/country club.

Very comfortable country living.
