    Would love to see more pictures! I would be in NY in a heartbeat if the real estate taxes weren’t so darn high. Really like the looks of this house and 17 acres, too.

    Lots of house, lots of land, and lots of potential – but where’s the staircase…?

    I wonder how long this poor baby has been sitting empty.

    Fine early Italianate style farmhouse here with the rooftop cupola that was a common feature of homes from this period. Doesn’t look like it has been altered very much on the interior. The house in streetview appears to be out in the country but a closer look places it very near Lake Ontario. The nearby village of Fairhaven is on the shores of the lake. I have to wonder if any of the acreage has lake front access? I could see someone taking this house all the way up to mansion level if they wished. The house is not very far from a state highway which probably means the road is regularly plowed of snows during the winters. As for taxes, that goes with living in New York State but the estimated $4,200 per year seems about average. If some kind of vacation rental or other income producing use could be established it might at least bring in enough to pay the yearly taxes. The listing indicates this is a bank owned (foreclosed) property. I suspect in this temporary period of uncertainty lending institutions might be more flexible about looking at offers so they can remove REO (real estate owned) properties off their balance sheets.

  5. Such a sad looking house….so many possibilities

  6. I know of this house as I grew up in Fair Haven. It’s on the west end of the village going towards Red Creek on 104A and sits on a hill. Land does not border water. It’s one of the towns most lovely homes. I hope it gets fixed and not left to deteriorate. Fair Haven is a summer resort village so it could be turned into a B&B possibly.

    If this were used as a vacation rental property, it might qualify for the federal tax credit. In addition, donating an easement to a preservation organization might also be financially advantageous.
