4640 State Route 357
Hand built cabin with tons of potential seeks new owner with imagination. It's a project, but what a project! This fantastic (in every sense) little home is a multi-level wonder the artistic builder made to suit his own desires. Perched on a hillside overlooking East Sidney Lake, there are gardens and stone-lined ponds, a curving drive and woods to the rear. Inside is a one of a kind home in all its quirky glory, with cozy nooks, just-big-enough spaces, and a former indoor climbing wall with a trap door.
Heat is from a wood stove, water is from a spring, and electric is just enough for function and no more. It's been empty and pipes froze, so plumbing is not functional. The spot is something very special, and it's handy to the village of Franklin, kayaking and swimming at the lake, and all the arts this region has to offer. Outside, stunning stone walls and a small reflecting pool designed by a renowned local stone artist. There's even a hand carved totem pole hanging from a tree. Writers, artists, handy people, this is a gem in the rough. Property is sold as-is, and is priced accordingly.
