1515 State Route 28, Old Forge, NY 13472
If you're looking for a secluded year round retreat, with over 800 feet of lake frontage on a private Lake, a custom-home built on a waterfall and creeks, and endless possibilities for outdoor recreation, fishing, and hunting...then you’ve you found your destination.
271 acres of verdant Adirondack wilderness, with ponds, streams, different elevation points in hills, elevated bluff and several hundred private feet on your own lake shared with three other owners, and other topographical and unique land features throughout make this a truly unique offering.
Once you enter the gated 3,000 foot driveway, you meander through the woods, until you finally arrive at the private, secluded home which sits directly built over a small waterfall and pond, with flowing babbling creeks that go to either side of the home and spill out into a wetland area below the driveway.
Sweeping views of the water, a soft serenade at night to sleep, and living at one with nature make this home a rare find and retreat from daily life. Two bedrooms, but really three distinct sleeping areas, a large open floor plan with high ceilings and living and kitchen areas that blend together seamlessly, and wood accents and traditional Adirondack character in architecture make this a special living space. Large open decks easily accessible throughout the home allow you to entertain and relax right above the pond and creeks moving below you, with a quiet hot tub area under a gazebo perched above the water as well. There are screened-in porches as well as open-air decks surrounding three sides of the home.
Custom kitchen with views of the water, you have a view of the water from every place in this home. There is a 5 stall garage with ample storage space and perfect for an outdoor enthusiast, for boats, snowmobiles, and all terrain vehicles. There's also a full apartment above the garage, year round and perfect for guests or family, for children, or to rent out. As mentioned there's over 800 feet of water frontage on a private lake that would be perfect to build a second home, or to utilize with a dock and access for kayaking, sailing, and swimming. The private lake is a short drive by car or ATV from where the main house is located on the property.
This property is a 5 minute drive south of popular tourist destination of Old Forge New York, off of Interstate 28 and is approximately 45 minutes north of the Central New York City of Utica, and the Interstate I-90 Thruway system, making this property accessible throughout all 4 seasons of the year. Close to area snowmobile trails and a network throughout New York State, close to area hiking and the lake system, and close to area shopping, restaurants, and other amenities afford you the best of both worlds in a rustic Adirondack setting, with your own private retreat and plenty of space and acreage away from the rest of the world.
