This 9.16 acre tract of land has everything you could want: mature trees and wooded land that give you plenty of privacy and natural beauty; paved roads that lead straight to the property; few neighbors who keep their properties well-maintained; runoff on either side of the road to manage weather well so there are no drainage issues during rainy seasons; and all in all, an ideal location for a new home!
The property is easily accessible from paved roads that lead straight to the property. It’s a beautiful two-way lane that’s maintained by the county, and it takes about an hour and a half to get to Rochester. If you’re looking for a quick jaunt, Syracuse is only 28 minutes away! Two-way roads, beautiful county maintained roads, and electricity lines that are on the road.
There are few neighbors on either side who keep their properties well-maintained, so it’s quiet and peaceful. The road itself has runoff on both sides to manage weather well, so you won’t have any trouble with drainage issues during rainy seasons—all in all it’s an ideal location for a new home!
In addition to having great neighbors (who are also quiet), this property has all the amenities you could want: it’s close to town, but far enough away so that you can enjoy peace and quiet; there are plenty of trees on the property which will provide shade throughout most parts.
