Country Bungalow - three bedrooms on bus line with fenced yard

This small country bungalow has three bedrooms and 1 1/2 bath in the east side neighborhood of Ellis Hollow, an area with rural character about 3-4 miles to Cornell (depending on what part of campus). Two of the bedrooms are small, and work best as an office, though the house would work for a small family (maybe fine with one child, but you be the judge!). The bungalow has an open first floor plan, with a decked-out kitchen with everything you need to cook simple or gourmet meals. The dining room has (will have, not pictured) banquette seating and a small bar. In the living room area, there is an audio system with record player and wireless connections for a phone or the Apple TV. Upstairs, there is one large bedroom with a king bed.

The outside is where this house shines! The large fenced in back yard has a deck, garden, charcoal grill, fire pit and fire wood, plenty of yard tools including a riding mower (yard maintenance not provided).

Ellis Hollow is close to Ithaca, Brooktondale and the lovely Brookton's Market, Shindagin Hollow State Forest (famous for mountain biking), and several finger Lakes Land Trust trails. Before the pandemic there was a weekly music night at the local community center, called Music in the Hollow, that you could faintly hear from the back yard. Maybe you'll be able to walk down and meet the community if the pandemic allows the tradition to restart this year.

About Me
I am a doctoral candidate at Cornell in City and Regional Planning. My research is in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and I leave the house for a few months each summer into the fall. I love living in Ithaca during my writing and teaching time because of the easy access to hiking, skiing, sailing, breweries, and wineries. There are so many good day trips! I have an active dog (husky mix) who loves the fenced back yard. Grilling on the late summer evenings is my favorite simple pleasure.
