Post and beam showcase estate in the middle of nature’s paradise

by Bethany Snyder, with Rich Testa 

Have you ever thought to move to Montana with the beautiful and scenic countryside?

The owners of this beautiful property wanted to capture such a Montana high feeling, however in their beloved Finger Lakes. This exquisite 85 acres, beautiful pond and mile of hiking trails also affords them ultimate privacy!  

The property is located in the town of Farmington, with a short distance to Canandaigua Lake!

The owners worked with an architect to create this Montana masterpiece including a spectacular great room featuring 18’ cathedral and vaulted ceilings-douglas fir beams, skylights, reclaimed barn wood and the hallmark of this home, the two-story stone gas fireplace with mantel made out of reclaimed timber from the Welland Canal. All open to a cook’s kitchen with knotty alder wood custom cabinetry, under cabinet lighting, farm sink, granite countertops, two islands and Frigidaire gallery stainless steel appliances – hickory floors and a wall of windows to take in those amazing country and pond views.

The first floor features a private owner’s suite, two walk-in closets, ultimate bath-heated floors and pond views. The first floor also features another bedroom, bath, walk-in pantry and laundry. 

The excitement continues upstairs with a curved loft area, bedroom/office with unique barn shutters like a window and bathroom.

The covered back porch offers one-of-kind nature and pond views.....highlighted by a tongue and groove wood cathedral ceiling, douglas fir beams and trex decking. The owners enjoy spending quality time with those inspirational views.

The owners wanted potential additional space so they designed a lower walkout level  that could potentially add 2,000 sq ft.

There is also the ultimate 40’ x 30’ barn outbuilding in the same architectural style....this the ideal man cave.

It is interesting how creative people like the owners of this property thoughtfully created a country paradise both with the land and home.
