Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Owner is a native ithacan who is also a musician, music teacher, writer, and works with the wine industry through a publication. She returned to ithaca to raise her son and ultimately retire, and is full of knowledge about the area; its schools, parks, wineries, residents, etc. She is connected to the live music and theater scenes as well. Just ask!

Why the Owner Chose Ithaca, NY, USA:
The history of this property can be read on our website. It tells about the neighborhood and my own connection to it through ancestors. It called to me when i saw it and i bought the house before even making a decision to here again, from an emotional pull. The innkeeper's story reveals the details.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Two things drew me to this house: first and foremost the view that is second to none in this entire city. No pictures can do it justice, so i have learned not to try and photograph it. Secondly, the arched wall to the dining room gave me a vision of a group of italian men playing cards in that very room, an imaginary scene which eventually proved to be true, and i used that arched theme to complete the design of the kitchen.
