2865 State Route 414, Seneca Falls, NY, 13148 $65,000
Surrounded by farmland, this c.1865 Italianate farm house for sale on 1.4 rural acres is a beauty! It is located outside Seneca Falls, the gateway to the Finger Lakes. Some believe the town was the inspiration for the fictional town of “Bedford Falls, NY” portrayed in the classic film “It’s a Wonderful Life”.
Due to its location, we can only surmise that the American Civil War-era home originally was owned by a successful farmer and had much more acreage than its present 1.4 acres. It is currently adjacent to the Empire Farm, a massive farm owned by Rodman Lott & Sons. Until a couple of weeks ago, the Lotts held Empire Farm Days next door to our featured home. Empire Farm Days was a three-day agricultural trade show held annually for 32 years. I am guessing that our featured home may have been the farm house for the large acreage that now comprises Empire Farm.
Diamond in the rough! Brick farm house for sale built in 1865 minutes from downtown Seneca Falls. Private setting on 1.4 acres. Amazing views!
