                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: I moved to Ithaca 12 years ago and love it. There's so much to do nearby, and yet it's a very peaceful place. I graduated from Cornell in the 1980s and always wanted to move back here. I'm a senior lecturer at Cornell.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ithaca:
                  I fell in love with the house when I bought it. It's a solid, mission house but feels modern, especially with the backroom addition that faces the view. You can see the lake or Cornell from almost every room in the house.
