Beautiful, spacious 4+ BR home for spring semester - the best of Ithaca!

Beautifully furnished, light-filled home on eight wooded acres in the desirable Ellis Hollow neighborhood -- only a 10 minute drive from Cornell and a 5 minute drive from the grocery store, pharmacy, coffee shop, gym, and restaurants. Ithaca living at its best! We are two law professors looking for responsible tenants to enjoy our beautiful, kid-friendly home while we are away for the spring semester.

The home has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms (including 2 en suite), a large living/family room, dining/sitting room, a den (with fireplace woodstove insert and a large television), a spacious study for two, and a bonus/craft room which could also be a study. The large eat-in kitchen looks into the living room and is fully equipped with Bosch dishwasher & range, microwave, etc. as well as a closet holding the washer/dryer conveniently located on the main floor. The expansive fenced-in backyard looks onto the beautiful woods and is perfect for outdoor enjoyment in all seasons; in addition there is a screened-in porch off the kitchen for the spring and early summer. Slate-tiled entry keeps the mud away.

The first floor master bedroom (with king bed) includes a desk and a dressing area in addition to the en suite bathroom (with tub); we have the second first floor bedroom (with en suite toilet/shower) configured as a children's room with a twin bed and a convertible crib/toddler bed. Upstairs includes two additional bedrooms (one with a queen bed and another with a high-end queen pullout couch and an elliptical machine), the lovely 2-person study, and a full bathroom. We have a 6 year old and a 2 year old so the home includes safety gates for the stairs, though of course these can be removed.

The garage is wonderful for possible snow, and the house comes with all linens, pots/dishes, etc. House will be professionally cleaned periodically, and this is included in the rent. Alarm system installed. We will likely need to keep some closets/space for storage of personal items while we are away but what that entails is negotiable.

About Me
We are associate professors at Cornell Law School who will be spending a semester teaching in the Boston area during spring 2016 (Jan-May). We would like to find responsible tenants for our beautiful home, a 10 minute drive (or less) from Cornell University and in a wooded area lovely in all seasons.
