Car: Necessary

You are in the heart of wine country and the beautiful Finger Lakes!

New York Wine and Culinary Center

Women's Hall of Fame and Seneca Falls

Watkins Glen natural beauty and motor fun!

Watkins Glen Raceway

Keuka, Hobart William Smith, Ithaca and Elmira Colleges, Cornell, University of Rochester and Syracuse Universities.

Boating, fishing, hiking, water skiing and tubing, swimming, relax on the dock, patio, two decks overlooking the lake or in front of the outdoor fireplace.

Enjoy an outdoor shower with temperature control to 120f, curtain enclosures, and two full-sized shower heads. In the summer, most people don't even bother with the indoor shower but prefer to enjoy the beauty, freedom and freshness of the outdoors. Experience it with your spouse, child or dog, because with two full-sized shower heads, no one is waiting for the other one to get out of the way! Step down from the shower into the warmth of summer sun, or in cooler seasons, in front of the full-sized outdoor fireplace. Lake front experience and views together with grapevine fencing completes the Italianate-FingerLakes landscape.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: All my life, growing up in Rochester, I wanted to have a house on one of the Finger Lakes. I am so fortunate now to have one, and we are teaching our children water safety, responsibility, care and upkeep of the house. Taxes and other expenses require us to rent it out. I am glad to share this beautiful, fun home with other people and families who enjoy the beauty of the Finger Lakes.

Why the Owner Chose Penn Yan, NY, USA:
The natural beauty is astounding and its proximity to wineries accentuates the fun! Mostly I just enjoy relaxing with a glass of wine, by myself, with my family or entertaining friends for dinner on the porch looking out at the lake. This property is unique on the lake with permanent dock, outdoor patio, fireplace and shower and two decks. Indoor gas stone/fireplace, new tile floor, cool in the summer, warm in the winter with radiant heat. Gorgeous spot on the lake!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Outdoor dinner seating on beautiful patio next to an outdoor large wood-burning fireplace and pergola with two-headed shower makes this place irresistible! Gorgeous tile floor in main living and kitchen area, cool and clean in the summer, radiant heat in the winter together with the indoor gas stove stove/fireplace make a cozy spot to watch the lake. It is enchanting in all seasons! Air conditioning will be in place for summer 2016! Indoor gas fireplace, full kitchen, quality utensils and dish ware. It is a great house for people of all ages because of the new dock, boats, two full decks (one for the adults and one for the kids), a complete house with bedrooms and good furniture, new tile in living area, new sliding doors and windows, new mattresses and comforters. New washer and dryer in the basement. All newly remodeled T.V. room in basement. Lots of room for three generations! All in all, a relaxing and fun place.
