NEWLY RENOVATED IN 2016!!! This spectacular 6 bedroom house is positioned on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. Below the Vineyard is located on the eastern banks of Seneca Lake, just below stunning acres of vineyards. This property has it all: a beautiful chef's kitchen, huge open concept main floor, 6 comfortable, private bedrooms, 4 full washrooms, and an oversized dock on the awe-inspiring Seneca Lake, close proximity to wineries, breweries, hiking, the quaint town of Watkins Glen and the Watkins Glen International Speedway.
As you descend the stairs to enter the home, you will feel at peace at your lakeside oasis. The entry level of the house is equipped with 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Immediately inside the front door is a bedroom furnished with a day bed and trundle, just across the hall from a full, 4 piece washroom. Down the hall is a bedroom furnished with a queen bed and a beautiful view of the lake. Continuing down the hall is the first master suite, which is outfitted with a queen bed and a private, full 4 piece washroom. To finish off the entry level of the home is a stunning loft bedroom that overlooks the sunroom, with breathtaking views of the lake. This bedroom is equipped with a queen bed, a new crib (27.5" x 52" crib mattress) and a new glider recliner for rocking the little ones to sleep.
Just down the staircase you enter the newly designed and renovated main floor. This open concept floor plan is perfect for family gatherings! It includes a custom gourmet chef's kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, a wine refrigerator, custom maple cabinets and beautiful quartz countertops. The enormous, farm-style dining table is ideal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, set in front of a massive wall of windows to thoroughly enjoy the view of Seneca Lake.
The open concept main floor continues into the gathering areas, with an oversized leather sectional sofa which provides a great place to watch the game or a movie on a large flat screen TV, or just play board games with the family. Need more seating? No problem. The main floor continues into a spacious sunroom, complete with two full sofas and a comfortable reading chair to make this vaulted ceiling room the next best thing to being outside.
Discreetly tucked away behind the great room is a quiet queen bedroom with a mounted, flat screen television. This bedroom is directly across the vestibule from the main floor, full 4 piece washroom.
The final master suite is down one more set of stairs on the ground floor, and is a private lakeside retreat! This suite has a queen bed, 3 piece bathroom with shower, and its own walk-out access to the lake.
The ground floor is also equipped with a full sized washer and dryer and another refrigerator strategically staged close to the propane grill and dock, perfect for storing all your grilling items and beverages.
The outside living space rivals the inside. Below the Vineyard has two covered porches! The lake level patio has a comfortable Amish-made porch swing, two large tables with enough seating for 12, a bar with additional seating and a propane grill. The 2nd level deck is an extension of the main floor. It has a large table and comfortable patio chairs to watch the boats go by and the gorgeous sunsets. A nice feature on the main floor deck is the latching gate to keep the little ones safely contained in a beautiful, covered area while the older kids play in the lake.
Don't want to sit under cover? Pull one of the chaise lounges out onto the lush green lawn, or better yet, out onto the oversized dock. The water depth ranges from ankle deep at the lake wall, to approximately 5 feet deep at the ladder, and quickly goes to 10+ feet at the edge of the dock. From this dock, your guests can swim, kayak, fish, or have a front row seat for the best sunsets on Seneca.
Below the Vineyard is within 3 miles of 10 wineries, 2 microbreweries, and several fine restaurants!
PLEASE NOTE*** Below the Vineyard is not pet friendly, as the owners have strong allergies to pet dander.
This cottage is wonderful. It is beautiful, well kept, spotless and extremely user friendly, fully equipped, comfortable beds, great kitchen. We lacked for nothing. The waterfront area is great and the dock was big enough for all 8 of us to sit and enjoy the view. We met a few neighbors and they were very friendly. My family is planning on going back next year!!!
