This is classified as a 281-Multiple residence, with a zoning for Commercial use. I am unaware of the square footage. First and second floors are heated. Home has a total of eight bedrooms, plus the three bedroom Log Cabin and a one bedroom Chalet cottage all on 8.50 acres.

Main house first floor features a double living room w/old adirondack stone fireplace, old french doors, semi-closed in porch, and solid wood wainscoating throughout the entire first floor, kitchen, dining room with tin ceiling and one powder room. Original hardwood floors throughout the entire home. Two staircases exist that lead up to the second floor. Second floor consists of six bedrooms,and a full size bath. Hallway is quite large, and can be used for a sitting area.

All second floor doorways have a transom above the doors, all in working order. Large closet in hall. Front bedrooms have newer windows. All windows have storms. Third floor has two large bedrooms (unfinished area) and an unfinished full bath, and a copper lined moth proof closet.

Property has a french drain and a sump pump. Home is heated with oil and electric and has a gas 40 gallon hot water heater. Electric service is updated to 200 AMP. Water is pumped in by a Goulds pump from a spring well. Septic System in place.Property has a detached two car garage with attached storage area and generator. Garage has heating potential with chimney, and heater in place. Large barn and wood shed.

The outlet for the Ainsworth Lake flows through the property, and the spring supplies the water for an Olympic size cement swimming pool surrounded by rock, adjacent to the house. Three story evergreen trees adorn the natural landscaping & waterfall.

Also the three bedroom log cabin, built in 1905, with newer front porch and some renovations, and the one bedroom chalet cottage. Main house has cedar shake siding. Property in need of restorations. Owners have not been able to finish. Condition reflects the reduced price in listing. Is truly a diamond in the rough. Would be a gorgeous property when completed. Lots of snow, for skiing at McCauley mountain in Old Forge, or Gore, or Lake Placid in one hour. The Best place to be for Snowmobiling.
