About the owner: In 2004, we were lucky enough to find this beautiful lakefront property for sale - just the land. We spent the next several years designing and building our lake house ourselves. From starting with the Douglas fir timber frame through finishing with walnut and pine that we cut ourselves, the home is a craftsman's dream. Our hope is to welcome guest renters for several (but not all) weekends throughout the year to our home to enjoy the house, the lake, and the beautiful surroundings.
Why the Owner Chose Burdett: We've been living in the Finger Lakes region for over 20 years. Owning lakefront property was a dream of ours since we arrived in Ithaca. We specifically chose the east side of Seneca Lake because it is in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country, fine dining, and close to Watkins Glen.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home exudes comfort. The open layout offers serene lake views from every window. The 100 feet of lake front are delightful. You can sit on the dock and watch the sun set to the west - directly across the lake. There is a spectacular willow tree on the beach offering shade during the hottest days of summer.
