Our Roots

Being with family and friends and the joys, sites and sounds of nature is what living here is all about.

Our magnificent Lofty Mountain development is located just 9 minutes from an area that is often called the “Aspen of the East” – Ellicottville, NY – famous for skiing, golfing and entertainment. It is 2.9 miles from NYS Route 219 expressway and 9 minutes from Springville, NY – the place for your shopping essentials.

As the developers, we have a keen appreciation of pristine land and the call of nature. Our Lofty Mountain development is much more than a place for people to have a home on. It is also a place for families to reconnect with the deeper rhythms of life.

Being with family and friends and the joys, sites and sounds of nature is what living at Lofty Mountain Grandeur is all about. It’s a lifestyle residence community, embodying rustic elegance through our award-winning timber frame homes – along with a mile of professionally designed nature trails to capture meandering streams and lofty vistas of surrounding mountains with all their grandeur.

We have developed and provided an opportunity for buyers not to speculate on a home and land, but to be end users of it, with deep emotional connections to it.

My sincere advice to potential buyers, view the home, walk the trails, take in the views and listen to the sounds. After your visit, tour other properties for sale. We think you’ll feel the way we do and buy the one that keeps calling you back. We have confidence Lofty Mountain Grandeur will be that voice.

Developer of the land,
Michael Incorvaia and Donald Matre

Buffalo News: Lofty Mountain Grandeur chalets provide a relaxing lifestyle in a unique setting

Cookie cutter is not a term you’ll hear in conversations describing Lofty Mountain Grandeur chalets.

These award-winning custom timber frame chalets, located in East Otto, New York — just minutes from Ellicottville — are carved within nature’s beautiful mountain landscape and provide the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Developer Mike Incorvaia, who grew up nearby, knew others would appreciate this “wooded playground.”

Incorvaia and his business partner, Donald Matre, purchased 200 acres, parceling them into 31 five-plus acre wooded lots with deeded rights to numerous nature trails and fishing ponds.

Dana John Contracting constructed eleven 2,300 and 3,000-square-foot, three-level chalets as part of Phase I, all of which have sold. Five homes have been constructed so far as part of phase II.

What sets Lofty Mountain chalets apart? It’s the many extras — which, are in fact, standard – that create a rustic, elegant, yet comfortable, charm you can’t wait to come home to.

Incorvaia has a passion for finding unique and interesting materials and repurposing them when building his chalets.

“People call me when a barn or building is being torn down. They know I will make good use of the materials, they won’t be destroyed or land filled,” says Incorvaia, who enlists local experts to dismantle, inspect and treat materials he purchases and hires local craftsmen to do much of the work by hand.

Bricks used to create visually appealing interior walls might have come from a demolished building near Buffalo’s Broadway Market. Many exterior and interior walls are constructed from 8’by 8’ locally sourced Civil War-era white pine beams or wood from a nearby 100-year-old barn.
