The first time you came to the Adirondacks it might have been to rough it. And you keep coming back. You may still like to rough it, but now you can afford to end the day with a little more style. And when you say to your kids or your best friends “Hey, anybody want to spend a few days up north skiing (or hiking, fishing, canoeing, or just lounging in the hammock)?” everybody yells “Oh yeah, I do!”
A vacation home in the Adirondacks. How cool is that? Wake up, go outside and go fishing or a ride your bike down a country road or hard core single track. Listen to all the birds in the morning, while sipping coffee on the back deck or patio and crickets and spring peepers in the evening. See the stars without the light pollution. And owning an investment property doesn’t have to be difficult. Buy
quality and you won’t be disappointed. This meticulously maintained property might be just what you’ve been looking for. It includes a 3 bedroom, 2 bath timber frame main house, a heated three stall garage with a money making apartment above, an equipment storage shed and a genuine Adirondack lean-to with fire pit. All on about 9 acres of totally private land. It’s a park like setting
with tall pines and manicured grounds and plenty of room for kids to run or gardeners to garden. The main house is situated to take in the best view looking out over a winding stream and meadow to the Stevenson Range and Whiteface Ski Center, its slides clearly visible just a few miles away.
The main house is timber frame construction with log siding and mahogany trim. At the rear is an impressive granite patio, created by local hardscape artist Dave Williams who did much of the stonework at the Whiteface and Lake Placid Lodges. There is a formal entrance to the home and another that you’d probably use more often. Either way you go there is plenty of space to drop your
overcoats, wet boots and muddy shoes.
Once inside you will immediately appreciate the build quality. The ceilings are clear cedar, the floors are hardwood or tile and the Anderson windows are oversized to take in the awesome view. The kitchen is everything you expect in a high-end kitchen - it is bright and airy with granite counters, tile floors and matching backsplash, custom cabinets, Bosch appliances and a breakfast bar. The mostly open floor plan makes entertaining family and friends while preparing dinner a cinch. And it’s hard to say which gets more attention, the view out the windows or the massive granite fireplace in the main living room. There is even a dumb waiter for bringing firewood up from the storage area. No mess, no fuss.
There are two bedrooms and two full baths on the main level with the master bedroom en-suite. Both baths have been completely renovated with Kohler fixtures and “carwash” shower heads and the master has a Jacuzzi tub and sauna.
On the lower level is another large living room and bedroom, both with oversized windows and access to the patio. There is also a large unfinished section perfectly suited for your workshop and storage. Several other features and upgrades worth mentioning include a new roof, high speed internet fiber cable, the main house boiler and on demand hot water have been replaced and the well pump has been upgraded. There is also central vacuum, dedicated wine storage room, AC in the
master bedroom and security, smoke and fire alarms. The home and garage both feature independent Kohler powered backup generators with dedicated propane tanks for each so you don’t have to worry if the power goes out because yours won’t.
The heated 3 stall garage is a really nice addition to have, especially in winter. The bonus is the one bedroom and one bath apartment above.
All in all, this is a property you’ll love and can be very proud of.
