Gem of the Adirondacks

 

 

Yes, we've heard "Gem" used many times; but just look at the picture below!  In real time viewing, it gets even better.  Our first visit to the property, made us just stop and look.  We didn't want to move.  The views remind me of the frontier days, when you traveled through a cut road in the woods, got to your country lodging and it overlooked the meadows, lakes and mountains with NO ONE in site! No one, but perhaps with a telescope you can spy on the skiers on Whiteface!

You go past the elk and the alpaca farms, down a dead end road and then through the woods.  The parcel opens up before your eyes to a delightful sight.  Pictures say a thousand words, but there is another thousand after you view this parcel.

Enjoy 515+/- acres with its own lake (for swimming, big mouth bass fishing and waterskiing), additional pond and stream, many acres of fields and a backdrop that an artist painted with the focal point of Whiteface Mountain.   Acreage is subdividable (inquire) and the wildlife is abundant (turkeys, geese, critters, grouping of deer, and the neighborhood black bear likes to bask on the small island.)   There is always some critter to entertain you from the large decks or viewing windows. 

The home is a wonderful customized home (rebuilt in 2004, with 4 bedrooms each with a private bathroom, living room with welcoming stone fireplace, lower game room, and work room, large decks and windows for scenery viewing.   The home comes furnished and is coined the Indian Creek Ranch, hence the decor is tastefully and expensively decorated with Indian flavor (hence the true feeling of the frontier); i.e. skins, hanging canoes, bronze statues, original prints, etc. (list to be inventoried).  There is 4-bay garage which can house 8 vehicles (tractor, dozer and other equipment included, inquire) and an adorable guest cottage hidden in the shadows that shares the same spectacular view.

This is retreat like no other.  Great for the high pressure executive, senators, or public figures needing a place to unwind and have some down time.

Offered at $2.49M, and when you see it you'll understand the value
