About Michael Lucent
Michael & Donna were young childhood sweethearts and then parted ways shortly after high school graduation. They each led separate lives until a mere 25 years later Michael ran into Donna; and their romance started right up where it left off! They shortly married and honeymooned in the Finger Lakes.
After visiting some wineries, Donna & Michael decided this would be the perfect 'New Way of Life,' running a winery together. They figured working together would be a fabulous way to make up for lost time!
In 2000 they bought the winery property, and turned their life's mission into learning how to start a winery---Michael was already an accomplished winemaker for the past 25 years.
Fast forward to 2008 the Pompous Ass Winery opened. Both Michael & Donna are whimsical; which they wanted to portray in their theme. As you can see the picture above, they are posing with 'Sir Jackson' the handsome character also known as 'The Pompous Ass.'
Michael Lucent purchased this house in 2011
Why Michael Lucent chose Watkins Glen
Last year in 2011, two house flanking either side of the winery property we put up for sale. Michael & Donna decided to purchase both to protect their investment; which now begs the question as what to do with these two houses?
After some deliberation, they decided to renovate and use them for weekly rentals; after all, they live in a tourist area and they are located right on the Seneca Lake Wine trail.
Every detail was by their design, having the importance of both convenience and comfort as their top priory. A house fit for a pompous ass was their motto; which is why they lovingly named the house 'Sir Jackson House.'
What makes this house unique
This is such an enchanting house to gather because of the way the floor plan is laid out. you enter into a bright and cheery expansive living room with plenty of seating and a large picture window facing the east side of the lake mountain view.
to the right is a large welcoming kitchen that can accommodate a seating of eight; has all new appliances and even a larger picture window which spans across the entire kitchen.
This house is the perfect gathering house for families to get together for holidays, birthdays, & summer vacations!
