This beautiful lake house was custom built by the owner in 2015 and new to the market in 2016. The owner custom designed and built this home specifically for this east side lot with 72' of private lake front that has just spectacular sunsets as it sits on nearly the widest portion of Owasco lake. The owner situated the home to allow for a view of the water from every room in the home and an unusual amount of privacy for the area. The home includes 3 bedrooms: one Master on the first floor and two spacious bedrooms on the second floor. One large bedroom is designed as a suite for a couple with children and sleeps up to 4 for a place to get away when your with a group. The charming home is a cozy 1,600 sq. ft. and includes a open kitchen great room concept for family's and small groups to enjoy company together. Also, you will find a relaxing covered porch place again for maximum privacy and lake views, yet thoughtfully placed to keep the sun from straining your eyes. Also included is a 1 1/2 car attached garage and parking for another 5 cars in the driveway. The outside lawn is big enough for playing games and a gentle walk down an inviting stone walk will lead you to a terrace level to enjoy the lake side which includes a fire pit for those evening campfires; a few more steps to the lake shore which is great for playing on the beach and splashing in the water. On the water you will find a two person kayak to enjoy and 70' of dock to swim, fish or dock your own boat. The shore is stone rather than sand, and water shoes are recommended. The clarity and warmth of the water have often been praised by our visitors and friends. The water starts out just inches deep and very gradually deepens to about 3 1/2' to 4' at the end of the dock. swim out another 30' and your in about 7-10' of water. Owasco lake is the deepest at 155' in the middle of this glacier formed Fingerlake and has plenty of lake trout, small and large mouth bass, perch and walleye for the fisherman. Some of the best ice fishing can be had out front when the ice arrives in mid winter months. Fall is spectacular when the leaves turn to brilliant reds, oranges, yellows.
