A Finger Lakes jewel returns to market after extensive restoration and expansion. The Evermore, formerly the MacKenzie-Childs estate, exudes originality, exquisite natural beauty and rustic elegance coupled with surprising whimsy and playfulness. The property includes the original 1790 farmhouse, a cottage, and an English-style carriage house, all set on 3.71 parklike acres with lake views and an additional 15.51 acres of farmland nearby. Included is private access to a one-acre lot overlooking Cayuga Lake and 71’ of shoreline with dock and cabana. Owners have vastly upgraded the buildings, systems and grounds of this iconic estate since 2013. The property is now energy efficient with many new windows and doors and a state-of-the-art wind energy system. The estate provides a steady stream of income through Airbnb and its own website. This is a one-of-a-kind destination that can be enjoyed as a quiet retreat or developed into a thriving hospitality business.

The lake property includes a one-acre lot overlooking Cayuga lake on Deer Trail North and 70’ of lake frontage. The cabana sits on the lakefront parcel. The one-acre lot is ideal for a small home or cabin. The one-acre parcel gives owners direct private road access to Lake.
