Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Building the lake house was my husband's and my dream. We wanted a place where family could gather and grandchildren could grow. I live in a city and always longed for a green escape. The lakehouse is a dream come true.

Why the Owner Chose Athens, NY, USA:
We wanted a lake that was pristine and safe for our family. Sleepy Hollow Lake's waters are constantly tested. We have our own sewer system. We felt it was the best solution.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sunsets from the deck; the ability to walk down a few steps and have a swim in a clean lake; a quiet read on the deck; a bike ride; a long walk; amazing lake views from every room.
