About Joan and Leo Macdonald
We are both scientists (a chemist and a geoscientist). We have two daughters, two dogs, and a bunch of chickens (not at this location). We grew up in the Finger Lakes region and really enjoy spending time hiking, wading, fishing and exploring here. We enjoy spending time in this spacious house and garden and on the trails, and we hope you will too.
Joan and Leo Macdonald purchased this House in 2016
Why Joan and Leo Macdonald chose Richford
This beautiful old farmhouse has a field and a very large forested tract behind it. We originally got it because we wanted the open space, but the house and garden are really nice to hang out in. There are a lot of old logging/hiking trails to explore and an old cabin that you can access by arrangement. Our property backs up against a wildlife preserve owned by the Finger Lakes Land Trust. Hiking there is also allowed.
What makes this House unique
Wonderful for family or small group gatherings. Convenient to nearby colleges and university (Cortland, Ithaca College, Cornell, Binghamton), Greek Peak, kayaking/canoeing/fishing, Finger Lakes waterfalls, trails, wine country ... There is a (seasonal) ice cream store 2 blocks away, a local diner, and state land and Finger Lakes Land Trust Preserve.
