Fabulous FURNISHED Craftsman Style Home, 4 BR/ 2 BA, Modern Renovations with Lake View!

Beautiful 1920's Cayuga Heights home available, away from the congestion and noise of downtown, surrounded by trees and with a view of Lake Cayuga. This is an exquisite craftsman home with a colorful front garden, large deck, extensive back garden, stone walls - it is the perfect getaway. The bedroom on the first floor has its own private breakfast deck that overlooks the hills and the lake and faces west, with a spectacular sunset. Bright living room and dining room boast plenty of light, with the open floor plan, archways, beamed living room ceiling, and a Spanish-style fireplace. Big, beautiful back deck has been well-maintained, with deck chairs and outdoor dining table, and with a speaker system to enjoy summer parties and the sunset. Newly renovated and spacious kitchen with white subway tile and black marble countertops - a cook's dream.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is a quiet sanctuary, with cathedral ceilings, king-sized bed, and an even better view of the lake though the trees. Behind the master bedroom is a walk-in closet with a window seat and dressing room.

A third bedroom is upstairs, and another "studio" room just off of the master bedroom with plenty of power outlets that is perfect for an office, yoga room, or nursery. The additional studio could easily be used as a fourth bedroom, as it has its own door and entrance.

Upper level study with built-in bookcases overlooks the lake. Two full bathrooms, one on the first floor and one on the second - makes the first-floor bedroom together with its own bathroom a great guest suite or in-law suite.

In a great school district - Cayuga Heights Elementary School is less than half a mile away! Ithaca High School is just down the road and across the street. Public transportation is available just at the end of the road, while the cul de sac and tree-lined street on which the home is located preserves the quiet of the neighborhood.

This home is an absolute sanctuary - tranquil, inspired by nature all around, and an ideal family home for a professor or writer (or couple of scholars!) looking for a peaceful retreat. At the southwest end of Cayuga Heights, so easy walking distance to either Cornell or to the downtown area!

About Me
I am a professor of economics at Cornell University. I own my own home in Ithaca and have put a great deal of time and care into the renovations and keeping it a beautiful sanctuary, where one can look out over the water and the trees and feel inspired for writing. I do often travel, either on leave or for summer positions, so I'm looking for homes around the globe that are equally well-maintained, where one can find fresh inspiration for scholarly work and new ideas. I prefer places that have been updated, and are in good working condition, without too much clutter, though I have traveled quite a bit, and I realize that this is not always possible on an academic's budget, depending on the city! I would definitely take care of and respect the home as I would expect others to respect mine as well.
