"Tall Firs Cabin" Log Home
Wonderful mix of the Adirondacks!
Adirondack Rustic Luxury best describes this lakefront home. Lots of love, care and creativity went into this home. The original setting of the 'Rawlins Homestead' (i.e. a simple Adirondack log lakefront cabin heated only with a central fireplace), this property was transformed into to a modern 21st Century homestead, now called the "Tall Firs Cabin". The owner kept the original fireplace as a tribute; even building a sunken living room to keep the footprint of the fireplace! The rest, however, is top notch!
The great room is anointed with the original stone fireplace (now 19' taller), and the tall timbers rise above to host a second master bedroom loft suit above. The custom woodwork by Eric & Eric (local builders) spared nothing in the design of this Stone Mill Log & Timber Home. Local cedar artist, Abe Gadjo, added his artistic flare tp the porch tree hammock post, outdoor porch bar and table nooks, and to the art work that camouflages the peek-a-boo window for the kids' secret room. The master bedroom on the main level enjoys an ensuite bathroom complete with Jacuzzi (and of course, a separate instant hot water Rinnai) and full tiled shower, plus box room and outdoor French doors to the screened-in porch and the outdoor 'cure' bedroom porch.
The loft bedroom is almost another master bedroom, complete with sitting area, child's secret room, and full bath. Though a loft, it rises high above the great room that is private.
The lower level (or basement) is fully finished with an office with access to the patio when you just need a work break. Also the custom tin drop ceiling tiles and trail map wallpaper are fun and unique; a wonderful place to study or work! The office is complimented with a full sound system theater room; complete with raised lighted flooring for the back seating. You can blast away in this room, and the rest of the family won't hear you. The teens of the family will claim this room every time! So get your tickets early! There is also a third bedroom with a full bathroom for the extra guests on the lower level (yes, promise the guest won't hear the football cheers in the theater room).
The shoreline of this 3.98 acre parcel enjoy 780' of mixed shoreline; complete with two streams, cascading small falls and private back yard pond (grow your own catfish perhaps). There is a legal agreement on this property with the DEC to protect its valuable wetlands as originally this parcel included a man-made peninsula to the deeper shores. The owner had remediated this causeway with two HD bridges for its own vehicle usage (no public access). The agreement includes the ability to maintain the road The marsh includes wild cranberries, lily flowers and lots of heron (i.e. which means great fishing below). Bird lovers and fisherman wanted!
