This is my foray into the world of suburban house hunting and my endless battle with normalcy and sameness.

3206 Gerry Levant Rd Falconer, NY
DESCRIPTION CLASSIC VICTORIAN MANSION - Curb appeal abounds in this brick Victorian Mansion situated in a park lot setting within the 27.4 acre parcel of land that is part of the package. The home has approximately 4700 square feet of living space with an additional 1200 square feet of space on the third floor that could be finished. There is a widow's walk off the third floor that adds to the charm of the home. The 1700 square foot basement with high ceilings could also be utilized. About 10 years ago a major roof renovation was undertaken and Mansard roof was completely rebuilt (cost approximately $100,000) to maintain the historical look of the home. The main floor has 11 foot ceilings and windows that entend to the floor. The previous owner had custom made replacement windows installed throughout the house ten years ago and the front porch was rebuilt four years ago. The last owners used the property for a children's home, therefore, all state mandated safety features were installed. The home is heated with three high efficiency furnaces (one on the first two floors and one in the basement) and there is a gas well on the property. The previous owners received "quota based free gas" from the gas well on the property. There is a blacktopped driveway and large paved parking lot plus plenty of surrounding trees, which have not been timbered in the past 16 years. The uniqueness of the property, the 27.4 acre lot, Falconer Central Schools, and price make this an attractive offering.
