The SpaceThe moment you first arrive, this property makes a statement! You’ll find its interior very warm and inviting with many high-end touches. As you enter the home, you will experience elegant marble flooring leading to a grand 2-story living room area with a gas fireplace, 20-foot-high coffered ceiling, recessed lighting, multi-tier paned windows, and French doors overlooking the lake. To the right of the entry is a full-bath, guest bedroom with a queen-sized bed, and home office with a fir bead board ceiling that complements the room's American cherry judges paneling, built-in cabinets, and bookshelves. To the left of the entrance you’ll find the formal dining room, accessible from the kitchen and the foyer, which has a stunning 3-tier chandelier, judges paneling, and seating for 8.
You’ll love preparing meals in the gourmet kitchen, which has a breakfast nook with its own bay windows overlooking the lake, and seating that can be expanded to accommodate 8-10 guests. There’s also a large granite center island with seating for 3 and beautiful granite countertops to complement the American cherry cabinets and built-in upscale side-by-side refrigerator. Other kitchen appliances include a 48-inch 4-burner gas range with a grill and griddle, built-in convection oven, microwave, and warming drawer. The kitchen opens to the large family room that features a cozy gas fireplace, 52-inch TV, surround sound system, and tinted glass to reduce any sun glare that may compromise your TV viewing.
Between the breakfast nook and family room you’ll enter the home’s sunroom, which has a cedar-lined ceiling, wainscoting, 2 ceiling fans, and a dozen tall casement windows for guests to enjoy views of the lake and access the 70-foot-wide wood deck and a bluestone patio, both of which extend across the width of the house. The main deck has 2 staircases that lead to a 25-foot-wide lower deck, which then has a single staircase to level lakefront. Between the kitchen and family room you’ll find a half bathroom and hallway to access the stairs leading to the home’s finished basement, which features a gas fireplace, sectional sofa, flat-screen TV, a full bathroom with shower, 2 sets of bunk-beds, and children’s toys. Head upstairs to the 2nd floor to access the 2 oversized guest bedrooms that have vaulted ceilings, skylights, and plush king-sized beds, as well as the private master bedroom suite with a king-sized bed and large bathroom with dual sinks, a shower and a whirlpool tub. Upstairs you’ll also find the spacious laundry room and pleasant reading area overlooking the 2-story living room.
Oneida Lake is just east of New York’s Finger Lakes and is sometimes referred to as their “thumb”. Because it’s relatively shallow, averaging a depth of 22 feet, it’s much warmer than the deeper Finger Lakes in the summer, making it popular for fishing, boating, water skiing, and swimming. Because it freezes solidly, Oneida Lake is quite popular during the winter months as well, and becomes a great spot for ice fishing, snowmobiling, and even cross country skiing. Oneida Lake is also known as a fishing paradise, containing game fish such as walleye, smallmouth and largemouth bass, northern pike, pickerel and tiger musky, and much more. This home is within walking distance of Oneida Shores Park and well within driving distance of the Baseball Hall of Fame, Boxing Hall of Fame, Turning Stone Casino, Destiny USA Mall, Finger Lakes Wine Trail, 2 ski resorts, Sylvan Beach Amusement Park, Syracuse University, and so many more attractions. The only disadvantage to this property? You may never want to leave!
