SKANEATELES, N.Y. – There might be fewer marriages between a person and a home more perfect than Sylvia Goetzmann and her house at 2880 West Lake Road on Skaneateles Lake, just outside the village.

Designed by well-known Syracuse architect John Ginley and built in 1964, her waterfront estate, boasting 284-feet of lakeside frontage, six acres of mature woods and landscaped lawns, eight bedrooms and bathrooms, and 7,800 square feet of living space, was ideal to display the extensive antique collection Goetzmann and her husband, Harry, had accumulated.
