Dundee house description

This beautiful exclusive vacation home is nestled in a private 4 acre wooded compound, once an abundant fruit orchard on the breathtaking western shore of Seneca Lake, in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country. This gorgeous contemporary 3 bedroom lake home provides a relaxing, memorable view of Seneca Lake with its floor to ceiling windows, as well as access to the lake, a short stroll from the house.(walk is about the length of 2 football fields) The wrap around deck allows guests the opportunity to BBQ their favorites on the outdoor gas grill with easy access to the kitchen through a sliding glass entry. Walk down to the lake a few hundred feet or drive, there is private parking to the staircase leading to a 100' dock centered within 100' of your personal private shale beach. Sit and enjoy a glass of your favorite wine, fish, take a canoe ride or just relax and enjoy the tranquil beauty of Seneca Lake. While visiting The Buttonwood House, be sure to explore the abundance of fine wineries along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. Owner provides all Linens, Fully Equipped Kitchen.
Internet Access. No Pets please.


Newly Remodeled: This vacation home was built 15 years ago on a secluded 4-acre lakefront lot with a spectular view. Recently acquired, all furnishings are new. Main Bath remodeled 2013 to include spacious Granite Shower. Window walls go across the front of the house. Spacious, new, composite decking surrounds 3 sides of the home. Ample parking. Nearby-Watkins Glen Racing, Hiking at Gorge, Beautiful Waterfalls, Antique Shops, Shopping, Mennonite Wares, Farm Markets,

Lake Front: The beach is a short walk (think the length of two football fields) or ride (park at top of stairs) to staircase leading to a large private dock, deck with a covered swing and 100' of private natural shale beachfront. There is a canoe available. The water is 6' deep at the end of the dock. It's a shale beach and shale lake bottom-some of the rocks can be sharp so please bring old sneakers or water shoes for walking in the water and on the beach. Weed mats adjacent to the dock allow for a comfortable swim area for adults and children. There is a comfy porch swing at the shoreline. Nice to just sit and enjoy the view with a glass of wine and maybe a picnic lunch or keep and eye on the kids playing in the water.

Further Details: The Buttonwood House sleeps 6 people max. The master bedroom and bathroom on the main level. The kitchen/dining area has a sliding glass door leading to the wraparound deck plus floor to ceiling windows with views of Seneca Lake.
