One of the great things about living in Western New York is that it’s easy to find a great home out in the country. Out on Dublin Hills Road is one such example. Settled on nearly eleven acres of rolling hillside this home boasts a forest view and a pond. It’s just outside of town so it’s close to Ellicottville’s skiing, golf, restaurants, and shopping. Standing on the deck on the back of the house there is not another home in sight, and the only sound is the birds in the trees. On the East side of the house is a large pond that takes up as much area as the footprint of the house. Just in front of the pond is a fire pit. Bring your marshmallows. A large deck wraps around three side of the house and takes in the pond and forest views.
Inside the home is just as nice. The living room is big enough to remind one of a basketball court. The kitchen and dining area are both impressively large. The breakfast bar, and counters are all granite, and are a great match for the hardwood floors and walnut cabinets. Just off the living room is the master suite. The spacious room has french doors that open to the deck and pond view. Upstairs are two bedrooms that have open beam peaked ceilings. Between them is a beautiful bathroom with a wood framed tub that would be the envy of any spa. The bottom floor is set up to be the family game room. The main feature is a stone framed fireplace that makes a great spot to relax away from the crowd. A pool table, foosball game, and various arcade games occupy the rest of the space.
It’s not often you find a newer contemporary home in the country. With plenty of sleeping space, and enough room for the nosy gang, it’s a bit of quiet secluded countryside. It’s far enough out to really get away and yet close enough to all the amenities this area has to offer to make a great vacation or full time home.
