Elegant Log Home In Private Well-Managed Wildlife Sanctuary

Description

STUNNING:  one word to describe this elegant log home within its private 120-acre wildlife sanctuary.    Quality constructed with high-end appliances and finishes, the home is immaculate inside and out and features a light-filled, spacious kitchen with granite counters, custom planed hardwood floors, a huge great room – featuring a vaulted ceiling and fireplace utilizing locally sourced stones and leading to a large porch overlooking a stocked pond in a beautifully landscaped serene setting.  Throughout the home, the custom craftwork and attention to detail is readily apparent with many additional features adding to an overall feel of relaxed luxury: spacious master bedroom with its private covered balcony, jetted tub with chandelier in the main bathroom, sauna in the finished, walkout basement which also has a family rec room, work out area, and office down to the custom tile design in the entry foyer.  There is also a main floor laundry room with a stainless sink for added convenience as well as a spacious two-car attached garage.  Two additional storage buildings are also conveniently located on the property. There are two food plots on the property, one currently planted to corn and an easy access road that is drivable with a truck all the way through the property to the back food plot.   The land and woodlot has been well-managed, with a mix of hardwoods and a very nice hemlock stand, and two hunting towers are well-placed at prime locations on the property.   The overall results provide exceptional deer hunting and wildlife habitat through careful timber harvesting and two strategically placed food plot locations.  The Daisy Hollow Connection of the Finger Lakes Trail runs along the perimeter of the property and it backs up to James Kennedy State Forest, part of over 4400 acres of state recreational lands.  The property is also close to the Cayuga Wine Trail, as well as ten minutes from Greek Peak Mountain Ski Resort. This private location is only minutes away from so many outstanding amenities in the Ithaca and Cortland surrounding areas, highlights include Finger Lakes Hiking & Wine Trails, several NYS State Forests and Parks, beautiful and pristine Cayuga Lake, Cornell University, Ithaca College, several museums, many culinary experiences, cultural and performing arts, as well as four seasons of outdoor recreation with hunting, fishing, boating, hiking, snowmobiling and many others.
