Prime Wine Country Opportunity in the Finger Lakes, Asking Price $1,500,000
Welcome to Starkey’s Lookout, a recently built wine and beer tasting facility with breathtaking views of Seneca Lake. Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country, this package consists of three buildings that sit on four parcels of land, totaling about 22 acres. Approximately 10 of the acres are zoned for growing grapes or beer hops. The interior of the main building, which is about 8,600 square feet, features towering ceilings, expansive windows and plenty of open space. There’s a wine tasting room, a beer tasting room and a large great room that separates the two. There’s also a commercial grade kitchen, large walk-in coolers, storage space, offices, restrooms and a gift shop. Stone patios surround the main building, allowing patrons to enjoy the gorgeous panoramic view of the lake from outside. Adjacent to the main building is a 44-foot by 80-foot concrete pad, great for hosting weddings and other outdoor events. There are two ponds on the property, which not only add to the peaceful atmosphere, but can also be used as an additional source of water for the buildings.
The second building, located on the south side of the property, is a 2,500 square foot store that can be used to sell wine, beer and liquor; as well as food and other items. It was previously used as a creamery where ice cream and other food was sold. Connected to the store is a large storage space that can be used as a separate commercial unit, or as an additional storefront. The third building on the lot is a 2-story barn that’s used for storage. There’s also a paved parking lot that has the capacity for 75 vehicles.
Starkey’s Lookout is located just 8 miles north of Watkins Glen and 26 miles south of Geneva. The winery’s ideal location in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country makes it a compelling acquisition opportunity for an investor who’s looking for a well-maintained, turnkey property. It’s also ideal for anyone who’s looking to move an existing business or open up a new one. There are over 30 wineries located around Seneca Lake, and over 100 throughout the Finger Lakes. The region has become a major tourist destination, attracting people from all over the world.
