This private 3 bedroom, 3 bath home overlooking Seneca Lake is spacious with plenty of room for everyone. The yard and house look out over the lake, with a Bocce ball court in the garden in the front yard. This home is surrounded with a private yard/garden and woods.
The house has an open floor plan with a large eat-in kitchen. The living room, with a cozy wood stove, looks over the wooded back yard where you can observe wildlife through the large windows, especially deer, squirrels and turkeys. The dining area is large with a fireplace, big French doors walking out onto the deck and a lovely lake view--enjoy a casual dinner or something more formal in front of the roaring fire hearth. The master bedroom and bath are quite spacious and the bedroom has a small deck attached that walks out into the back yard. Sit on the back deck and enjoy a glass of wine while you listen to the birds sing and watch for deer. The lovely master bath has a walk-in tiled shower and big soaker tub, just the thing after a day of sight seeing or hiking in the Finger Lakes.
There is a second bedroom on the main floor with a full bath directly across the hall. This room is large enough to add a pack-n-play if you needed room for the baby.
The basement has a family room, which can also become the third bedroom, with a pull out couch, a great place for the kids to sleep, and an attached full bath. The basement has its own exit/entrance door that walks out level with the driveway.
The driveway is quite sloped from the road up to the house and a 4X4 vehicle would be recommended in the winter.
This house on Salt Point Rd, is within walking distance of the town of historic Watkins Glen. There are sidewalks that extend from the village almost the whole way to the house, so you can meander to the many eateries, breweries, wine stores, and small shops located downtown. Take a dinner cruise or boat tour from Captain Bill's, enjoy a craft beer at Roosterfish Brewing Co, have an elegant dinner at the Seneca Harbor Station or the Harbor Hotel, do brunch at Glen Mountain Cafe, or hike the Glen, see the waterfalls, and swim in the pool at Watkins Glen State Park. If you enjoy biking, bring your bikes or rent some locally and try out the Catherine Valley Trail...a perfect family activity.
The house is within 5-15 minutes drive of dozens of wineries, and just a stone's throw from the Seneca Lake wine trail. Bring your family, another couple or grab some girlfriends and spend a few days out and about in the Finger Lakes and your evenings at the House on Salt Point.
