          Car: Not Necessary

          Saratoga Springs is best known for thoroughbred horse racing from Mid July through Labor Day. For $3 you can experience horse racing in it's purest form and you can walk to the track from the house.

          Saratoga's mineral springs are another major draw and have brought people as diverse as native americans in the 17th century to rock stars in the 21st. Enjoy the many spring houses throughout the town ~ one is a quarter mile from the house~ or bath at one of the remaining bath houses in Spa park followed by a relaxing massage at the Roosevelt Baths. Down town is only a mile's walk away and the architecture on the journey will keep you interested all the way to Broadway. Saratoga Springs has an impeccable collection of Victorian, Sears kit houses and Craftsman structures and you will see them all from East Avenue to downtown. Downtown Saratoga has won many awards for restoration and entertaining qualities: Shopping, dining and entertainment strive to take your experience in Saratoga to the best and most memorable.

          Take a day for a steam boat ride at Lake George in the summer months or a trip to Lake Placid to ski where Olympic competitors still practice in the winter.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: Growing up outside New York City I wanted a change of pace so for college I studied in Virginia. And I ended up staying in Virginia and raising my kids. When all my family moved to Saratoga Springs I thought I'd join them and I'm so glad I did. Saratoga Springs is a great place to live! I'm in the hospitality business and I have enjoyed learning about the area and helping guests with inside information on the best restaurants, events and shops.

          Why the Owner Chose Saratoga Springs:
          After growing up in the suburbs of New York City with access to all the arts, music and dining followed by living in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia I developed dual interests. Virginia gave me a calmer, friendlier atmosphere to enjoy but I missed the arts and culture: in Saratoga Springs I found both! There is no better place to be in the summer than in Saratoga whether your interests lie with the NYC Ballet, Philadelphia Philharmonic, the Live Nation concerts at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center or of course the thoroughbred horse racing. This house sits 6 easy blocks from the Oklahoma Track and 7 from the Saratoga Flat track. I personally love walking the mile or so to the great restaurants and shopping downtown and much of the art and objects in the house came from local shops and artists. The house itself is charming and the prior owner was a master gardener. I have been restoring the property for the last two years and while it's not completely finished it is a very livable and charming house ~

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          This is a very livable house. It was built in 1945 in a brick cottage style and everything but the washer and dryer is on the first floor. The arched entry door opens into a large living room decorated in cool shades of white, cream and black. There is picture window to watch the people headed to the track or the remains of the day. When you need to put up your feet, there is a flat screen television, Cable and a DVD player. Wireless speakers allow you to stream music from your phone via the complimentary internet access. And if work has to continue while you are enjoying Sartoga there is an office with a printer. Everything needed for the Saratoga summer drink, Saratoga Sunrise will be waiting for you on your arrival.
