We have a 1600sf year round St. Lawrence River home located in upstate NY, 15 minutes north of "1000 Islands" vacation area.This a second home with beautiful views of the main shipping channel, Singer Castle, and numerous islands. Great fishing for the angler, 15 miles to bridge to Canada and casino. July-September busy tourist time and river activities. The house has a large kitchen area (22 x 24)where everybody seems to hang out , large living room (20x26) all with windows looking out on the river. Three bedrooms, two of which are 12x16 and a loft BR 12x24. Drawback-one downstairs bathroom, but everything else makes up for it! The front deck is 10' x 55' and the back covered deck is 8'x16' leading down to the driveway and back acreage. It's a modest abode, and has lots of space. This property takes no back seat to "Key West" sunsets .
The neighborhood consists of two of my sisters and their husbands (both professional couples), and a retired couple that spend summers. Very private and quiet with an occasional vollyball game on weekends. You need an auto to get around, but there are lots of thing to see and shopping nearby. In summertime, drive in theaters, good dining, tours of 1000 islands and two castles in the area.(Singer Castle right out in front of the house!), golf, or just relax! Good Neighbors.
This is a second home that I built myself while in the contracting business. My family operates a custom door manufacturing business with our 24 year old son as operations manager. Our daughter is in last year of college and plans to come into the family business. My wife and I are in our early 50's. We have been cruising for the past 3 years and really enjoy the carribean islands. We love beachfront properties and sun! Who dosen't. My wife likes shopping and sightseeing and I like fishing, hunting, boating and hanging out talking to people. We're a little conservative too!
