You will find the charm in every corner and nook of this pleasantly placed Victorian style cottage that sits at the water’s edge of Keuka Lake. By boat this cottage is easily recognizable with its distinctive red roof ( the reason why it has been called the Strawberry Cottage from back in the days when the roads were made of planks. The lovely lakefront home on Keuka Lake was featured on the Today Show by renowned real estate expert Barbara Corcoran.
This is how you would see the lake home now.
One of the most notable changes in the home, is the fireplace. It was built by the same craftsmen that did the masonry work for the famed Mirbeau Spa owners in Skaneateles.
From the fireplace you turn around and face the lake. You enter the spacious covered porch through brand new energy-efficient French doors. Oh my, the views are just amazing through these doors.
Once through the French doors yu will immediately see the craftmanship of the hardwood porch and rails. Most of the details from the original porch were maintained.
The kitchen is where so much happens and the source of fun meals. The entire kitchen was replaced and redone. A very updated charming kitchen for your lakefront cuisine.
What a difference right ? Now lets see a little of the dining room area.
Now lets turn towards the stairwell. It was painted with a funky rainbow scheme and now is representative of the Victorian period. Notice the new windows, very energy-efficient.
Besides a full downstairs bathroom that has been redone, there is also a new bathroom upstairs.
The bedroom is now bright and airy with views to Keuka Lake. Paint, windows and curtains make so much difference along with new floors.
