Imagine living the gracious, lakefront lifestyle of a by-gone era. Enter the property through a secluded, treed drive that sets the stage for entry into a special world.Built in 1912 by the Welch family( of Welch Grape Juice Co. fame) with landscaping originally designed by the firm of Fredrick Law Olmsted, this home is situated in a tranquil spot on the lake. Mentioned frequently on the Gadfly and Chautauqua Belle boat trips as being the Welch house, the cottage overlooks 2.18 acres with approximately 120 ft. of lakefront. The lawn slopes to the water allowing for spectacular views of the lake and the magnificent sunsets. The lakefront area is private with a view of the Chautauqua Bell tower which is directly across the lake - close enough to hear the bells toll. The cottage has over 2410 square feet, built with steel beams in the house and porch. The deep wrap porch and outside dining area are breathtaking. The exterior covered porches measure over 1, 032 square feet and are clearly designed as the main living spaces of this classic lake home. The home exemplifies the shingle style with emphasis on linkage between the interior and exterior, with the wrap around porch with stone supports, three sets of french doors, plus dutch door and stone fireplace. Inside, the large living room and fireplace are open to the lake views, with 2 entry doors. The kitchen has an adjacent spacious, work-in pantry area. The formal dining room opens to the living area and creates a flow that is ideal for entertaining. Upstairs the 6 bedrooms ( which include 2 sleeping porches) are spacious and light and have generous closets. Three of the bedrooms have direct lake views. Off one of the lakeside bedrooms is an additional room which could be used as a sitting room or large private master bath. The large basement has both interior and exterior access. This seasonal home is well maintained and has had many upgrades over the years. This is more than your average lake home and offers a lifestyle to cherish. Call today for your private showing.
