General overview

* Our home will be available for several months from December-March if there is interest. We have wonderful winter solitude for writers, artists, musicians or photographers. Eco-green, Energy Star, Newly Constructed Barn Home. Built with mostly locally grown organic, acquired and reused materials with a focus on health, comfort and energy efficiency. Glass doors in every room bring the outdoors in. Our home is a choice location for privacy, sunsets and exploration of the Finger Lakes and the famous wine trail. Our home features a large screen room, pavilion, fire pit and swim pond. Sample the bounty of our organic garden, berry bushes and fruit trees.

The space

Our home is of pole, pier and concrete slab construction and super insulated. It is one of a kind. Built as much as possible with locally accessed natural and reused materials. Everything we have is super energy efficient and low volatile. Our water is from a well, delicious and non chlorinated. Our heat is from wood from our land, passive solar and in floor radiant. We are very connected to the outdoors and we love nature and wildlife. We modeled our home and land scape accordingly with glass doors in every room that open to the outside. Our landscape and pond invite wildlife. The open concept continues inside where all rooms open to a central cupola. All of our interior doors are barn type on rollers. They allowed us to have a smaller foot print but also to maximize the space. When all the doors are open the space feels larger. Our soaring ceilings add to the feel of spaciousness as does our screened lanai as an extra outdoor living space. We love our sunsets and even our vintage clawfoot tub was oriented to the view. We also love flowers, organic gardening and we compost too.

We have an outside shower please feel free to use it. We have a kiddie pool, an outdoor clawfoot tub, and a hot water faucet by the shower so you can fill with warm water. Our home was just built sept 2017. Our landscape is still a work in progress, there are muddy areas. Our pond is still under construction. Already it has some frogs, tadpoles, newts and occasional visits from water fowl. Main water shut off is in the master bed room in a closet. Sometimes our screen room gets pretty wet in a windy rain storm. We have an antique table out there. It has a cover, if you could help protect it in the event of rain we would appreciate that.

Member description
Don't hesitate to contact me. I love to travel and I can go anywhere. I own vacation rentals so I understand the importance of care, cleanliness and hospitality. I would like to travel almost any where. We want to plan a trip to the west USA national parks, to Ireland west coast ( I have already committed to this swap). ,Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Yucatan Peninsula, Panama and really anywhere. We are a retired couple with a small very well behaved non shedding dog. Our dog can stay with our children if she doesn't come with us but we do allow a dog at our homes. We are adventurous, non smoking, quiet and clean. We own vacation homes so we know we would be comfortable with a swap.
