A custom country home on 221 acres in New York’s Parish is on the market for $1.3 million.

Completed in 1997, the 2,750-square-foot four-bedroom, three-bath home looks and feels like a ski lodge, with tall windows, stonework and red oak floors, Syracuse.com reported.

“We’re trying to bring elegance to the woods,” owner Matt Jarvis told the outlet.

Robin Gedney Lucas, Four Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty have a list.

The Jarvis family has lived here for over 50 years, when Matt Jarvis’ parents purchased the 120 acres in 1970. Matt Jarvis then purchased another 100 acres in 1987 and built their dream home.

The master bedroom on the second floor has a walk-in closet and an interior balcony. A 900-square-foot basement includes a living room, kitchenette and bathroom, according to media reports.

The owner’s bedroom has his and hers walk-in closets and its balcony offers the best “look of the house”.

A pine-paneled walk-out basement adds 900 square feet to the house. It has a living room, kitchenette, bedroom and a full bathroom.

Jarvis told Syracuse.com that the big pack is “a year-round exerciser’s paradise,” which is a major draw.

The grounds include a covered carport, wine cellar, porch swing, garden, potting shed, outdoor shower, dog kennel and a “queen’s cabin” with a wood stove and brick pizza oven, according to the store.

The property is open for hiking, hunting and cross-country skiing, and is close to prime fishing, Jarvis said.

“I slid out of the garage and walked miles and miles,” he told the outlet.
