Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hi! I grew up in the finger lakes and absolutely love the area for its beauty and all the amazing attractions. I still reside locally and love it! I have a passion for real estate, and began investing in real estate while still attending college. Having earned a bachelors in business administration and a masters in education, I am currently employed by a local university. I am also a licensed sales agent for Amanda Grover Real Estate and find my involvement with Real Estate very rewarding. I LOVE spending time in the finger lakes with friends and family. Whether attending concerts, festivals, being on the water, or hiking - I enjoy being outdoors and active. Another passion is traveling, but wherever I travel I am always comparing to what I have at home in my own back yard and I return more fortunate to call the finger lakes home.

Why the Owner Chose Romulus:
Building Seneca Bungalow and owning property on Seneca Lake has been a dream. In 2011, I purchased the cottage that my grandparents built in the 1950's and starting researching building Seneca Bungalow on the same footprint of the existing cottage. Not only did 4934 East Lake Road appeal to me because it had been in the family for over 60 years, but because of the beautiful location and lot. The level lakefront, amazing sunsets, great neighbors, Reader Creek, and positioning in the Finger Lakes make Seneca Bungalow an amazing property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Building Seneca Bungalow in 2013 was a great experience. I was very focused on paying attention to every detail and making sure the cottage had a classic, comfortable, lake feel, along with quality, sustainable construction while doing as much local as I could. I employed local Amish families for the wood flooring, all trim, built-ins, and all cabinets. I located salvaged doors, collected fieldstone from local vineyards, and made every effort to make Seneca Bungalow a great cottage for friends, family, and guests to enjoy. It is hard to list unique benefits; if I had to I would say: -Location -Level Frontage with large shale beach -New Quality Construction -Very Tastefully Furnished and Decorated -Handicap Accessible -Great Friendly Neighbors -Amazing sunsets -Comfortable design for small to larger groups -The list can go on and on!!
