Large split-level home with lots of windows and natural light. Main floor features a newly-renovated open concept living-dining-kitchen with vaulted ceiling and skylights, hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking private pond and wooded valley. Rear balcony off kitchen and living room allows outdoor eating with a birds-eye view of nature. Spacious master bedroom includes loft office, walk-in closet, and private bath, and private balcony overlooking pond, creek and 14 acres of forest -- perfect for morning coffee and evening fireflies!
The house features 3 additional bedrooms and 2 additional bathrooms, plus a large family room downstairs. The lower level includes a laundry room with a treadmill and indoor bike trainer. The oversize 2-car garage is attached to the kitchen via a mudroom/pantry and there is a large vegetable garden on the back of the house. The large backyard is great for lawn games and entertaining. Separate cabin (with a woodburning stove and outdoor fire ring but no utilities) can serve as a writer's retreat, art studio or children's playhouse. 250 ft sled hill from the house to the pond in winter.
14 acre wooded lot includes a segment of Buttermilk Creek and adjoins undeveloped acreage to the north, west, and south creating a natural wildlife corridor and plenty of woods to explore. Wildlife is abundant, including deer, fox, turkeys, beaver, many species of birds, and more. 1/2 acre private pond is stocked with bass, catfish and bluegill and is good for swimming, fishing and ice skating.
Despite the rustic setting, the house is a 12 minute commute to Cornell, an 8 minute drive to downtown Ithaca, and 4 minutes to Ithaca College. A public bus route that includes downtown, Ithaca College, and Cornell makes a stop 0.5 mi from the house. The neighborhood is quiet, family-friendly, and diverse.
Housecleaning, utilities, yard maintenance and snow removal can be arranged if you desire. More pictures of the house and the property are available on request.
