200 Year Old Fixer on Finger Lakes

3563 NY-89, Seneca Falls, NY 13148, USA
$75,000

Description

One of the most scenic routes in the Finger Lakes is a 35-mile stretch of highway that runs along the west side of Cayuga Lake, from Ithaca in the south to Routes 5 and 20 in the north. Along the way is spectacular scenery, thundering falls, peaceful camping, world-class bird watching, lovely bed and breakfasts, beautiful beaches, unique restaurants and bustling wineries. – Life in the Finger Lakes Travel Issue 2012.

Built in 1820, this once beautiful brick house sits on 5 wooded acres with pond on scenic Route 89. Neglected by both the previous (indigent) owner and the community, it had fallen into such a state of disrepair that Seneca County condemned it in 2018.

It is going to take $$$$$$ to make it habitable, so I’m selling it for little more than the assessed value ($55K) – which I have been advised the land alone is worth (cleared).

Before becoming collateral damage in a contentious divorce, it operated as a successful B&B [The Locustwood Inn] – or so I was told by the previous owner.  Within walking distance of Cayuga Lake makes its restoration as a B&B an investment worth considering.

The Structural Evaluation prepared by Lakeside Engineering in November 2020 is available upon request.
