11 Goodelle Terrace, Geneva, NY 14456
Geneva, New York, is another one of my favorite towns. It’s situated right on Lake Geneva, has the distinction of being the “Lake Trout Capital of the World,” and is in the beautiful wine country of the northern region of the state. Our family would always stop in Geneva on our way to visit our son at college. (He went to Rochester Institute of Technology.) Downtown has great old brick buildings and so many gorgeous older homes. If you go, you have to make it a point to get a chocolate milkshake at the ice cream shop at the public beach area in town. They are sooo good! From there, cross the street and stop in at the antique/junk shop. You can’t miss it.
This circa 1910 American Foursquare is in walking distance to downtown and the lake. It looks like it’s in good shape. I love the front porch and the windows that remind me of those of my own foursquare. You enter into a spacious foyer with an “L” shaped staircase and a columned room divider. The living room and formal dining room with built-ins look lovely, and of course, hardwood floors are always a plus. The kitchen is homey and functional, and there’s a great walkup attic space. (We used our walkup attic as the boys dorm.) I think the only downsides to this wonderful home are most likely the heating bills and New York taxes.
