Bear Hollow Road travels through farmland as it heads into the hills. The open fields give way to the forested hillsides. It’s the perfect embodiment of country life, productive farms transition to cool woods. Up the side of the low mountains is a secluded home on just over five acres of land. The view from the front deck looks over an alpaca ranch. This country home is full of the amenities of newer homes. It maintains the generous rooms of older homes with features like a formal dining room, a basement and a large kitchen. In addition, the owners have added a beautiful sun room off the back. It’s a perfect spot for a casual dinner or to read as the snow falls silently outside. The master suite has a large bedroom and roomy bath. Two other bedrooms and another bath are on the main floor as well.
Downstairs the basement is finished with carpeting. There is a “rec room,” that is a space for just about any use, and a spot for a home office. The laundry and utility room are here as well. Outside the house in back is a nice sunny deck. Off the left side of the home is a private shady yard. The hillside in back has been tiered by the owners and lovingly planted with flowers and shrubs for a year round display of color. Up the the hill a couple of benches have been placed for a quiet spot to curl up with your iPad. In all it’s hard to imagine anything else you could want in a home. For all its quiet and seclusion, it’s still only minutes to downtown Ellicottville, with its restaurants, golf and skiing. And yet it’s still a little world of its own.
