Home On A Private Road with Beautiful Views Trails and Hunting
Hidden in the heart of Steuben County wine country is this wonderful and secluded home on a private road. Towering maple trees greet you on your drive up to the house showering you with shade or fall color along the gated driveway. Watch deer and other wildlife come to the pond from the kitchen window, or relax on the elevated approx. 10’ x 20’ deck taking in the views. The house is remarkably large sleeping 14, with a bonus room of another 4 more. This home has alot of memories here having been mostly used as a hunting camp and holiday get away for a large family. The open concept upper level boasts a huge approx. 29.6‘ x 27.6’ great room/dining/kitchen living space with a wood burning stove insert. The kitchen has a double stainless steel sink, an LP gas stove with stainless steel range hood, back splash and fridge are next to sliding patio doors open to the deck. A custom built bar was added for hunters to retreat to where they’ve told big buck stories for years or just enjoyed as a central gathering place for family events and entertaining. The entire great room space has ¾” bamboo hardwood flooring through out, and feeds down the hall where you will find four bedrooms and a full bath and a half. There is a full course basement with a bonus bedroom and bonus commercial style kitchen area for parties and overflow guests. Additionally, there is a walkout/drive-in set of french doors on the lower level for storing ATVs or moving in large pieces like a pool table. This home has many recent updates like a brand new (2020) forced air furnace and air conditioner, new hot water tank and heater (electric), with an oversized jet pump with reverse osmosis filter system (2016), full tear off roof (2014), and updated all vinyl windows (2012). The septic has a 100 gallon tank and was pumped in 2018. There is Wifi and cable service here, which is appreciated for Sunday football games, or for the remote worker that needs to connect to the world. The property was recently logged, providing new growth for deer hunting and an elaborate system of groomed logging roads offering access to all corners of the property for hunting or hiking. On the east and south borders, the property line is shared with approx. 1,819 acres of Moss Hill State Forest. This state land is available for hunting camping and snowmobiling for even more recreational opportunities. Nestled in the heart of Steuben County winery country, this home is only minutes or short drives to day tripping on dozens of wine tours or spending the day in Watkins Glen State Park or hear the roar of NASCAR racing at the Watkins Glen International Speedway. If boating and fishing are your vices, just north is the beautiful town of Hammondsport. At the southern tip of Keuka Lake you find more wineries, a marina, boat tours and night life by the water. Bath, NY (one of the oldest settlements in New York) has its own golf and country club that is open to the public, and the town offers all of the shopping and convenient services you need. Check out this home and recreational property, it’s a hidden gem in one of the most beautiful areas in Western New York.
