Property Description

Brook Farms built in 1902 Home of Skaneateles Festival where world renown musicians came and played on the porch every August from 1980-2015 is a special magical place that offers serenity and peace on its 23.27 acres and 618' of waterfront with boat house. It is a grande old 3 story home with large pillars and columns invites you to sit and listen to the birds and sounds of nature along with the shady forest of old trees, its clear bubbling brook and sweeping views of a majestic lake or the beach where one can sit sifting the shale for arrowheads on a hot summer day or enjoy the frigid crystalline silence of a late winter afternoon. This wonderful old home is just waiting for the next steward to become parts of its life and create new memories that will last a lifetime..* Please note there is a Conservation Easement on this property that was entrusted to The Finger Lakes Land Trust, INC.
