This gorgeous East Hill home was uilt by a popular local builder as his personal residence and has been beautifully maintained by the current owner. Enjoy sunsets and views of South Hill from the wrap-around front porch. The East Ithaca Recreation Way is just steps away--walk or bike to the Cornell campus! The house has four bedrooms and four full baths featuring slate and ceramic tile floors and walls. The stuning kitchen has miles of cherry cabinetry and granite countertops, tile backsplash, and a wet bar. There is a two-person sauna, a gas fireplace in the living room, and excellent workshop/studio space in the walk-out basement. The back garden is fully fenced and very private.
What the owners say: We love the privacy this home offers with its variety of plantings that flower from spring through fall: rugosa roses, irises, peonies, butterfly bush and beautiful flowering crab apple and cherry trees. Even grapes! The large number of windows bring the light and color inside. We also appreciate how this well-built house requires minimal maintenance, allowing us to relax and enjoy the property. Family circumstances dictate that we leave the area but we will miss the beauty of this home.
