Lodi house description

Our “Heart’s Home” welcomes you to your home away from home vacation destination. This private, relaxing and serene home sets up on three acres of rolling greens offering million dollar lake views and spectacular sunsets over Seneca Lakes' sapphire blue waters that will blow you away! From the moment you arrive, the long driveway leading up to this home, revealing the amazing view, beautifully manicured lawn and flower gardens, you will be at peace. The one-of-a-kind view can be enjoyed from anywhere on the property, whether relaxing on the patio furniture on the spacious deck that runs the entire length of the house or from the gorgeous new resort-like in ground swimming pool/patio that sits adjacent to the home. This incredible scenic view can also be captured inside the home from the living room, kitchen & dining area, master bedroom, and the studio basement.

This home is perfectly located in the stunningly, beautiful Finger Lakes Region in Upstate New York, sandwiched between two of the largest lakes (Cayuga and Seneca) and their wineries. This home is located along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail with over 30 of the finest wineries in the state and several new breweries. It is within a mile from four of the finest award-winning wineries and a world-class regional cuisine restaurant in the Finger Lakes Region. So for those of you that would like to indulge in some wine tastings, it's a lovely walk back to the property with the phenomenal views. Cayuga Lake/Wine Trails is only 15 minutes from this home. You will not be disappointed with the location of this property. It offers you the best of both worlds!

Seneca Lake State Park/Lodi Point is only a couple miles from this home with a marina, beach, swimming and playground for the children. If you desire to relax for the day, you can unwind in your own private, newly built in ground swimming pool with diving board; throw some steaks on the gas grill and relax by the pool side patio capturing the sunset views in the evening. You may even want to have a cozy camp fire at night toasting marshmallows, relaxing under the stars and watching the fireflies light the property. On weekends, you can usually see fireworks lighting the sky over the lake from the property. The 4th of July is spectacular watching the fire works while sitting on the deck outside this home.

This 2500 sq. ft. 4 bedroom, 3 bath house is the perfect house for family gatherings, getaways, or relaxing vacation. We assure you will find a sense of comfort and peacefulness upon entering this home and may never want to return to the stress of the real world.

The spacious master bedroom suite boasts a king size bed that is perfectly set in the room to capture the landscape view of the lake. When you awake in the morning, this view will be the first thing that you see, and when you retire for the night you can open the french doors and drift off to sleep while looking out at the reflections over the lake and the sound of the crickets in the air. The master bedroom has a private bath and walk in closet.
