Spacious and spectacular, this sprawling country estate captures the essence of provincial living within the bounds of what was once one of the area's most prominent Christmas tree farms. Known and admired by many, this large farm incorporates a number of virtues to deliver a sum-of-all-parts experience that lends itself well to farmers, hunters, naturalists and recreational enthusiasts of all kinds. The well-maintained home, spacious barns and stocked ponds are all centered on the parcel's southern expanse granting an exceptional view of the bountiful fields and adjacent woodlot. Take time to admire history with this circa 1890s manor that brings together classic characteristics and modern living. The spacious rooms bask in brilliant light all four seasons while a pellet stove and wood fireplace offset cool fall nights and winter chill. The three bedroom, two bathroom floorplan complements the expansive downstairs living space that includes an open eat-in kitchen, living room and enormous great room with a loft and 30-foot vaulted ceilings. Off the rear is a large covered and screened-in porch perfectly suited for dinners on the deck, evening libations or admiration of the rolling fields and ponds. The land comprises a diverse mix of open and wooded spaces punctuated by the humble remnants of the immured tree farm that once adorned the space. Wildlife is abundant across the landscape, with deer, bears, coyotes, turkeys, songbirds and other animals making a living among the significant acreage. The land's expansive footprint occupies both sides of the road and is easily traversed thanks to a series of established ATV trails that weave their way through the fields and woods in all four directions. This area is generally known for producing exceptional deer, including one of the state's most significant bucks at one time. Several large bucks have been harvested from this parcel with a number of additional stories about "the one that got away." There are two barns on site, an 1800's style two-story wood barn and a more recently constructed 30X60 pole barn that provide ample space for storage, work or other activities on the farm. The property was once the site of a very productive gas well which has been decommissioned and reclaimed for future uses. Don't the rural nature of this farm fool you; extensive amenities are just a short distance away in the city of Elmira, where you can find shopping, dining, entertainment and a regional airport.
