Looking for a chance to start over? 6 acres of land in the city of Locke, NY is within your grasp at a price that’s roughly equivalent to what you’d pay for yearly rent on a small apartment in an expensive city.
If you’ve always wanted your own piece of the American dream but can’t quite come up with the down payment on a house, this is your chance. You can live in the mobile home while you build your own house on the property—The possibilities are endless!
The 70×12 foot mobile home on the property may be a diamond in the rough–it’s being sold “as-is” and its contents are not guaranteed to be there at closing – this means you’ll have the freedom to rip out anything you might find inside (which is probably trash anyways) and completely gut the space to reflect your own personal style. At first glance, it may look like a typical mobile home is on the property, but don’t be fooled! What may look like a typical 70×12 foot mobile home is actually a blank canvas ready for you to create your dream space.
If you love animals, this land is perfect for you! You can bring all your pets and they’ll have plenty of room to run around. And that means more fun for everyone!
The land itself is in a quiet, secluded area where you can enjoy the peace and quiet of rural living while still having neighbors close enough to avoid feeling isolated.
So what are you waiting for? Pick up this little slice of heaven
Nestled in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, Locke is a small, tight-knit community with a population of approximately 1,896 (2018) people. It is the “Gateway to the Owasco Flats,” which are some of the most fertile farming lands in New York State, and it has preserved its rural character by actively promoting agricultural and tourism interests.
Locke is located at the southern end of Owasco Lake, and it is 20 to 30 minutes away from Auburn, Ithaca, and Cortland—three cities that are each distinctively different from one another: Auburn is an industrial city that has been transformed into a small-town cultural center; Ithaca is home to Cornell University and Ithaca College; and Cortland is known for its eclectic mix of retailers and eateries.
In addition to being centrally located near these three major cities, Locke is also within two hours of Syracuse, Rochester, Binghamton and Canada.
