6765 State Route 21 (Town of South Bristol)
Milton and Janet Karz
Don’s book listed it as built between 1966-1968 but current owners say their documentation says 1975. Possibly built in 1968 and additions in 1975?
Current owners, Marty and Jill Gordon, said, “Some updates have been done over the years to make the home livable, but it does have one of the most spectacular views up the lake and the general layout is untouched. Believed to be the only Hershey home on the lake. Modifications were needed because the design was originally a butterfly roof and the roofing products of 1975 did not result in a waterproof valley. The home was completed in 1975 and has a sweeping view northeast into the Vine Valley across the lake. Milton Karz, the original owner, was the developer for Riverton in Henrietta and Rustic Village Apartments across from the MCC campus. Interestingly, the siding on the house matches those two Karz projects.”
(Did Hershey build an earlier house in Canandaigua in 1966 for Karz that included passive solar with builder Bill Wertheid or Westheid?)
