521 Ridge Road

Arguably one of the best views in the Finger Lakes! Contemporary farmhouse style home with over 5000 square feet on 30 spectacular acres with pond, pine groves, park-like grounds, rolling meadows and outbuildings.

A private estate setting taking in amazing views sweeping 7 miles up Cayuga Lake into the City of Ithaca with the campus of Ithaca College and the hills of Danby as the backdrop.

The southeast views are across the Town of Lansing, the bluffs of the east shore and then up the ridge to East Hill and Cornell University

The southwest view offers more lake views goings south along the west shore to the park lands on the southern shore and has stunning winter sunsets

Wonderful views are observed all 365 days of the year ranging from winter snow squalls clipping the lake, intense spring thunder storms, brilliant splashes of color in the fall, or the ever twinkling and glow of the city lights

Retreat from the everyday hustle and bustle and take in the sights from a 1200 square foot wraparound classic farmhouse style porch. Great for entertaining. Inside you will find open space, 24′ ceilings in the living room and 82 windows throughout the house bringing in light from all directions. Spacious Woodmode kitchen with granite counters, walls of cabinetry, ceramic tiling and a huge center island. The kitchen opens to a semi octagonal shaped sitting room / dining room overlooking the property and views.

Main floor den with french doors and a wood burning fireplace just off the formal entry. Upper floor has an oversized master suite with jetted tub and walk in closet. Bonus room with oak parquet flooring doubles as a 2nd floor bedroom.

Walkout lower level with in floor radiant heat has additional bedrooms and a bath ideal for separation and privacy. Ideal for older children or visiting guests. Additional family room, also semi octagonal, overlooks property and steps out to patio area and grounds.

As spectacular as the views are the grounds. Accessed off the main road by a 1100′ foot paved driveway, you will find 30 acres mixed with rolling lawns, rows of spruce trees, flower beds, fenced in garden space, woods and a 1 acre spring fed stocked pond with dock. For the hobbyist the grounds offer a great opportunity for orchards, gardens, nursery, vineyards, animals and more. To help service the grounds there is a 30 x 40 outbuilding with heat, power, water and garage doors at each end. Additional 1 garage garage down by the main road.

A true Finger Lakes gem thoughtfully designed, lovingly cared for, and ready for the next owner to enjoy all it can offer.
