Year Purchased: 2006

About: My wife, who was raised in Elmira, and I, raised in Manhattan, where we lived until 2005, moved to Elmira and purchased this home from my wife, Gail's father, who had chosen the home because it satisfied his unique desire to be near the Town yet be in the Country as it is nestled next to a 250 acre Floodplain 'Park' along the spectacular Chemung River, three blocks walk from the house.

Why Elmira:
Natural Beauty, Victorian Setting, Many cultural events locally, fall follage, convenient location near City but rural feel as a result of nearby 250 acre park along beautiful River and Hills

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Along River Park, Birds, Deer, Eagles, Bear, (occasional) Pileated Woodpeckers, ospreys, dog life along river, foliage, scenic beauty, stargazing, jogging trails, fishing, Canoeing, Kayaking etc.
