Thom Filicia’s Skaneateles Lake House

Every once in a while even after you believe you found all of the correct info for a story, you find out likewise.  I would like to thank the wonderful person who has assisted me in corrected the original information contained in this blog.  I have made corrections in a different color.  It ended up that some of the pictures came from John Walsh’s home, also located on Skaneateles Lake and of course we all know John from the “Adam Walsh Foundation” and “Americas Most Wanted”.

Thom did help  with a fundraiser for the Historical Society by opening up his home for a tour.  You can read the article by clicking on the link  Skaneateles Press.

Once someone discovers the Finger Lakes, either through visiting the area or just being raised in the area, they tend to come back even if only seasonally.  This is true of Thom Felicia a well know designer, most notably from the Bravo TV series “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy”

We are going to show you a bit of Thom’s lakeside home,  a place where he can get away to with his two dogs and boyfriend from the hustle and bustle of his city living lifestyle.


His well styled lakefront home is located on Skaneateles Lake, one of the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York.  It is also the lake that President Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton love to visit friends at.

The interior shot of Thom’s home when he purchased it.  We can only imagine what wonderful things he did to turn this room around.



For some, the lakefront is minimal but it packs a punch with its style. It is all about the design and the design is warm and welcoming.

The home to  the right actually belongs to John Walsh but Thom did do the design work for him and John Walsh’s home is just down the road from Thom’s.  The home above is the actual home that Thom purchased and shows the way it looked when he purchased it.

The interior is stylish with its natural elements, but of course it is the lakeside that draws you.

Now doesn’t Thom look happy on his boat with his dog Paco?  Most of these photos you see are courtesy of Jonny Valiant.

Thom was gracious enough to show his lakefront home in 2011 in a local home tour that raised money for the local Historical Society.
