A petite 800-square-foot footprint creates the perfect framing for expansive windows to soak up the incredible lake and forest views. The living space is anchored by a wood stove sufficient to heat the entire home, though there are also radiators throughout.

The home’s two bedrooms extend conveniently off the living room. Both bedrooms open up into the back screened porch, great for that cool lake breeze during warmer summer months. The bathroom is crisp and tidy, featuring a spa-like steam shower. The bright and airy kitchen covers all the essentials and exercises a superb use of space. The kitchen is an easy step out to the elevated deck, great for dining al fresco with sweeping lake views.

The main house is flanked by a lakefront studio outbuilding on one side and a sauna on the other. The studio was recently insulated and wired for full-time work-from-home use in 2020, including the addition of a 12’x6’ deck. The stunning sauna is in need of some electrical repairs before being back up and running, but then imagine being in the sauna followed by a cold plunge just steps to the lake.

The capstone of the property is the private lake frontage, with a generous dock extending into the lake with plenty of room for sunbathing, reading, cocktails, and tying up the canoe. Amber Lake is a spring-fed, private and non-motorboat lake just minutes to trendy Livingston Manor.

This three acre parcel was originally three lots combined into one, in 2002. As such, this prime lakefront property is possibly subdividable and buildable, offering a variety of opportunities and investment appeal.

The property is surrounded by forest and river, numerous fishing spots, swimming holes and hiking trails. It’s the perfect base camp for all outdoor adventures, while being just minutes from foodie markets, restaurants, breweries, wine shops, home goods and fashion forward shops, even a pilates studio. Just two hours from the city, this location is ideal as a weekend getaway, co-primary home or full time residence. Under 10 minutes to both Livingston Manor and Roscoe.
