There are always rumors about the stars and celebrities being in and around the Finger Lakes or even owning homes on the lakes, from Whoopi Goldberg, Faith Hill. Paul Newman, Ethan Hawke, Richard Gere and most recently John Travolta, Anne Hathaway and now Justin Bieber. I have left many of the names out, but you get the gist of the story. Some stories are real and some are just rumors. If you want to know which stories are true contact me.
I first heard about this rumor from my youngest son. The story was traveling around Twitter and Facebook via the younger crowd. My son asked me if it was true. The hard part to believe, was that he already closed on the property. How did this happen without me knowing about it, right in my own backyard ?
Well Justin and Angela Bieber did purchase a small lakefront home on Keuka Lake. He is just not the Justin Bieber we have all come to know as being the teen idol. Originally offered for sale at $429,000 in March of 2010, the home was reduced this year to $299,900 in March of 2012, a more realistic price point. This is the home they purchased. The transaction was handled by Vang Real Estate. This is a cute home with 1 small bedroom and bath on the main floor with an additional bedroom and bath in the walkout basement. The selling points of this lakefront property were the two expansive decks and privacy.
The only celebrity Justin Bieber that you will find in Penn Yan or around Keuka Lake, is the stand up of him at the perfume counter in Peebles Department Store.
While, the young man would have been welcomed into the great lake community of Keuka Lake, there were the jokes going around about the new style of haircuts that would be offered in the local barber shops and of course all of the young girls were dreaming and drooling at the thought of their idol moving into the area. Maybe next time ladies.
