Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My husband grew up in the Finger Lakes and always wanted to return to the 'calm', so we visited in 2002. It took one week to decide to buy property here, and we began the three year experience of building our own unique home away from home. Since we are builders by profession, it was not too difficult to make the decision. Our kids were grown, and we really loved the peace and quiet that this place provided. Our home really does reflect the happy part of ourselves, the simple way we look at life. We hope you find the comfort level you need here, at your home away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Burdett: We loved to visit wine country in the Napa Valley and longed for that kind of beauty here in the east. This property was quite a discovery! So we built this home ourselves, with our own two hands, on the weekends. It took us three years. We both grew up in the country, my husband here in the Finger Lakes, myself in western PA. The city life had gotten to us!
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House: There are no other houses or cottages visible in any direction on this property, affording exceptional privacy. Conveniently located so close to Watkins Glen, a quick trip to the store for a forgotten item is not an issue. The brand new Finger Lakes Distillery is just across the road (Rt.414), and wineries are less than a mile away. Some of the finest restaurants in the area are located on this Route 414 also, just a short distance from the house.
