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 improvements 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 Evermore is located on Cayuga Lake (near Aurora and Ithaca) in New York’s beautiful Finger Lakes region at 1671 State Route 90, King Ferry, NY 13081. From Cayuga Lake, you can cruise the world via a canal system to the Hudson River through New York City and out to the Atlantic Ocean.
