Wells farmhouse description

Located on East Stony Creek and 35 acres in Hope Valley in the Southern Adirondacks this renovated 1850's Farm House is a home away from home. Peace and quiet amid Adirondack Adventures and sights abound.

Stay at home and relax, walk to the creek to wade, swim, fish, canoe or kayak. Sit by the fire and read or play an instrument. Ride your bike two miles to the trailheads at the end of the road and wander off into the wilderness. Hike to the nearby waterfalls, or get in your car and drive to the endless number of things that suite your fancy. This is the Adirondacks.

We have one large bedroom with a Queen Bed, and two smaller yet still quite sizable bedrooms with Double Beds. All of the bedrooms are upstairs and share a common bathroom. There is an additional bathroom downstairs with a tub for soaking. There is ample and comfortable living space in our open floor plan with common dining area, sitting areas, gas fireplace, window benches and baby grand piano. The fully stocked kitchen should not disappoint.

                      The nearby Village of Northville offers a variety of interests for local shopping. A rebounding small Main Street is an interesting stroll. Visit the local Java Joe's coffee shop, go antiquing at the Red Barn, shop or sign up for a ceramics class at the Orendaga Studio. Check out locally made Adirondack furniture at William Coffey Studios. Grab a some pastries at the bakery at the Inn at the Bridge or dinner at the Timeless Tavern or Lake House Grill. The many surrounding small towns have rich histories of logging and hard living but today there are artist and craftsmen hidden in the nooks and crannies. The local hikes, lakes, and streams are abundant. Get on the Great Sacandaga Lake. It's a boater's and water skier's delight in the summer and a skate skier and fisherman's escape in the winter. Go mountain biking on the grwoing number of local mountain bike trails or take a road ride to enjoy the beautiful rolling beauty of the Adirondack foothills. Visit the Wells Beach and try your hand at the coolest lake beach diving board that we know of…


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: My wife and I are mostly mountain people. We choose to live in a beautiful place surrounded by good, smart people and we enjoy the outside. We ski, hike, bike, kayak, raft, and run. We like to get to the beach when we can. We now have a new little man to take on our adventures with us. We think he's a pretty lucky guy.. There is always music and good food in our lives. If it's not being made, it's being sought out and enjoyed. We like to work hard and play hard.

                      Why the Owner Chose Wells:
                      This 35 acre property is a gem and quiet escape located just outside of the town that I grew up in. It is remote, yet sophisticated. It is mountian charm and rural living with a touch of class that allows us to visit and entertain our family and friends the way we choose. We only wish that we had more time to make the garden flourish!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      This old house has been updated to be airy and light. The breezes that blow through in the spring, summer, and fall will fill you up. When the temperature drops and the fog billows across the fields it's stunning. You can't help but stop and enjoy your surroundings. That holds true for all of our experiences here. The river offers cool refreshment in the summer and beautiful splendor in the winter. The riverside fireplace is enjoyable any time of year. The trailheads at the end of the road draw us out daily.
