Property Description

Gracious Living. Family Friendly. Amazing Privacy. Almost Perfect. This may be the finest home in Cayuga Heights. This classic French style home with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths has a sense of the past and many pleasant surprises. It has been exquisitely renovated, no expense spared. (See complete details in Property Documents.) The center of your life will be the expansive live-in-eat-in kitchen, with a fireplace, Wood-Mode cabinets, Viking Wall Oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Jenn-Air range, two sinks and more. The formal dining room has French doors opening to the patio. Booklovers will finally have a place for all of their books with three separate library areas with built-in bookshelves. The Great Room is an inspiring place to be: high ceiling, exposed beams, huge windows, and a spiral staircase leading to a book-lined balcony. The master suite has amazing views, a gorgeous bathroom and study. Although large, the house feels just right with warm, comfortable spaces. There’s a lovely apartment, ideal for returning grown children, elderly parents, or an au pair. Sited on 1.44 acres, you’ll enjoy the complete quiet, vistas of the sunset, winter lake views and...nothing else. No houses obstruct the view. (Did I mention the pool? It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen in Ithaca. You’ll feel like you’re on the Mediterranean.) Convenient to everywhere in Ithaca, walk to Cornell.

P.S. Nabokov Slept Here.*

*The house was built in 1930 by Cornell scholar Morris Bishop and his artist wife, Alison Mason Kingsbury. Bishop wrote The History of Cornell, which was once required reading for all entering Cornell freshman. Bishop also brought his friend, Vladimir Nabokov, to Cornell in 1948. (Yes, Nabokov really slept and wrote here.) Bishop’s wife Alison Mason Kingsbury was noted for her murals and landscapes. Her art studio was the Great Room! One of the bathrooms features a mural painted by Kingsbury. The house has a very calming, creative feel, and all of the women who have lived here have been artists.
