65 Hickory Ridge Road in Penfield is on the Market

Bowie House - 65 Hickory RidgeBarbara Bowie-Whitman notified us that the Robert G. Bowie home at 65 Hickory Ridge Road, off Panorama Trail, Penfield is on the market for the first time!

The Bowie Family has owned the home for 53 years.

Designed by Don Hershey in 1959, and built under his supervision in 1960 with Engineer client Bob Bowie as general contractor, this home features a dramatic cathedral ceiling living room with beams sourced from the Pacific Northwest. Hershey sited this hilltop home with an 8 by 6 foot picture window framing the Rochester city skyline of the day.

Bowie House Inside - 65 Hickory RidgeThe home sits on what were originally two lots in Emil Muller’s development, including ½ the woodland property to the left of the home. The property runs from Hickory Ridge Road to Panorama Trail, with no neighbors in the rear. The framed skyline may only be partially glimpsed in winter now, given the lush woodlands, which have grown on the slope behind the home offering privacy and shielding the home from Panorama Trail traffic.
