Tour of Homes, Part Two
Just as the definition of “home” varies from person to person, ways to that “home” differ as well. This year’s theme is All Roads Lead Home. The homes and properties shown today are each unique but they all share one thing in common – each have paths that lead someone home.
On Saturday, June 11 from 10 am to 4 pm the following homes and properties will be on view:
- Weaver View Farms, 386 State Route 14: This 13-room house sits on a 80-acre Mennonite farm and features a country porch and a recently rebuilt kitchen with beautiful wood cabinetry, floors and paneling.
- 1166 Earls Hill Road: Built in 2010, this eco-friendly home was constructed from Logix insulated concrete forms and uses a geothermal heating and cooling system. The interior features a custom kitchen and great room with a 180-degree view of Seneca Lake
- 1136 Earls Hill Road: More spectacular views of Seneca Lake will be found on this property. A 1997 ranch with hardwood floors, the house is stocked with antique furniture, an old safe and collections of vintage toys and milk containers.
