Nestled privately in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondack Park, this circa 1900’s country home commands an exciting vista of the Sentinel Range and the Ausable River as it flows nearby. From the back yard, home to Whitetail deer, Grouse, Turkeys and, on occasion, a Moose, a 10 minute scenic walk through an Adirondack forest will lead you to enchanting water falls on Styles Brook. The home is located only 10 minutes from the Olympic Ski facilities on Whiteface Mountain and 20 minutes from the quaint village of Lake Placid, with its Olympic venues, excellent shopping opportunities and fine eateries. International airports at Albany, NY, Burlington, VT, and Montreal Canada are less than 2 hours away by car. Lake Champlain and the ferries to Vermont are less than 35 minutes to the East.
Home amenities include a living room, with pegged oak floors, pickling finished woodwork and windows that allow for natural illumination during all seasons. A wood burning fireplace provides comfort on those cool summer evenings. The master bedroom, with Berber carpeting, is complimented by a walk-in closet, dressing area, and bath. The kitchen, with wainscoting, handcrafted cabinets and ceramic tile flooring, leads you to a laundry room and mud room, connecting to the two car garage that provides protected access to the home during periods of inclement weather. An artist’s studio, redesigned to accommodate a dining area for family gatherings and an exercise room completes the ground floor area of the home. Three additional bedrooms, with clear finished plank flooring of the era, and a full bath complete the second floor. A screened porch protects you from those pesky bugs, while privately enjoying the refreshing clean mountain air of the Adirondacks. A partial basement allows access to the mechanics of the home. Comfort to the rooms is provided by a fuel oil-fired, hot air furnace. All living area windows are thermopane. Domestic water is provided by a 90 foot deep, 30 gallon per min., drilled well and is heated by a 40-gallon electric hot water heater. An attached wood storage shed is conveniently located from which to replenish wood to the fireplace through an outdoor to indoor wood box. The home is wired with a security system and an auxiliary power electrical connector to accept a generator in case of black outs. Two barns provide storage for grounds keeping implements and other household maintenance and recreational equipment. Some furnishings may be available for purchase.
