This one of a kind property includes lake-side porches with beautiful views of Seneca Lake for any season. It has a majestic presence along South Main Street in Geneva, New York.
Built in 1846, the Geneva Historical Society calls this house an adobe. Often found in the southwestern parts of the United States, adobe construction is made by mixing clay, soil, sand and straw to form a strong brick-like material. Originally built as a Gothic Revival, the house went through several modifications causing its appearance to change over time. Another interesting note about this property – the original home was built by Theodore Irving, nephew of Washington Irving. Theodore taught modern languages and European history at Geneva College from 1837 to 1847.
This spacious property has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms with gorgeous terrace gardens designed by the famous landscape architect, Fletcher Steele. Home to the same family for more than 70 years, this property with 268 feet of lakefront access is move in ready.
