Buddhadharma : Summer 2009
This is not a commercial endeavor. It is a private undertaking for those interested in a unique setting with diverse potential. Perhaps you’d like to leave the city, make a life change or get involved in a noble project. Whatever it is, we’ll listen. Presently occupied by the owner/builder as his private retreat and slowly growing into a “very spiritual” Organic Raw Food Bed and Breakfast. He may entertain partnership in a bed and breakfast, corporate retreat residence, sell you a portion as your personal residence or will consider other possibilities. Additional details and acquisition specifics are to be discussed and negotiated. He invites interested parties to contact him. ABOUT THE PROPERTY Shantideva Temple, situated on 5 acres, sits above a 5000 sq ft courtyard that is adjoined by a 3000 sq ft, 3 level, 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath private log residence. The logs were hauled down from Vermont and the interior construction is entirely wood, most of which was harvested right here on the land. Adjoining the log residence is a 2000 sq. ft. “Green Energy” Barn that has just been erected. Adjoining the Temple property, on 7 acres, is a 2250 sq ft, 3 bedroom, 2 bath modified 30x50 ft barn residence with 24 ft ceilings. The eccentricity of design is reflected in the use of a variety of woods and tiles. Cherry floors and walls, flame maple cabinets, stone platforms and massive white and red pine trees co-mingle with a variety of hard and soft woods throughout this outrageous building. The upper bedroom suite overlooks a 1 acre, 14 ft deep pond area landscaped Shantideva Temple PO Box 40 Ithaca, NY 14851 • Tel: 607-257-5349 Fax: 607-266-7904 • www.shantidevatemple.com • firstname.lastname@example.org with a perimeter of tumbled flagstone. The pond is situated within a 50+ acre parcel that has a 20 ft high natural waterfall. Massive stones, some weighing over 40 tons, were located around the country and transported to construct the 101 ft diameter stone circle that overlooks a cliff. This vantage point affords the opportunity to watch magnificent sunsets. On the hilltop overlooking the stone circle is yet another parcel with a small 300 sq ft log cabin, hand carved by Native Americans, set upon a stone base and patio. The views are breathtaking. In its entirety, the property encompasses 115+ acres, tied together by over 3 miles of roads. Presently 8 subdivisions: 2 parcels are residences at $750,000 each (one presently occupied by the owner); one parcel has the small cabin at $350,000; another has an outrageous 11 acre “Camp” with a 1500 sq ft. home, out buildings and a pond at $400,000; three are ready to build on from $250,000 each; and the 50+ acre parcel with the pond, waterfall, Stone Circle and a myriad of trails are to be deeded for private use to the other 7 parcels and will remain wild forever. LOCATION The Temple, residence and adjoining properties are located minutes from downtown Ithaca, New York. Ithaca is the home of the Namgyal Monastery Institute of Buddhist Studies and Du Khor Choe Ling, the Land of Kalachakra Study and Practice, Namgyal’s new facility. Namgyal Monastery in Ithaca is the North American Seat of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. And a property that is not for the faint-hearted is being offered for sale in its entirety or by parcel.
