Open House Alert! 5731 Sandbank Road

Sunday afternoon I will be busy again.  The open house is scheduled for 1:00 to 3:00 on Sandbank in Elbridge (Jordan zip code - 13080).

I love this house.  Wide open to the back yard and nature - tons of birds and deer come in because there are only fields beyond.  And yet you are maybe a mile from Route 5, Kinney's, and easy access to Syracuse and Auburn.  You can get in to the University in 25 minutes or out to Cayuga Community College in 15 minutes, going west.

Back to the house:  three bedrooms, all large with good closets, and two full baths, both with great tubs.  Those are on the level above the garage.  The main room - called quite truthfully a "great room," has cathedral ceilings way high.  (Ask the owner - he just painted them!)  The kitchen and living room look out on to the back yard through huge windows, so it appears you are right there.  Like in a nature center - you see the animals but they don't see you.  All new appliances in the kitchen, too.  The table is situated so you see the road, but because the house sits up and back so far you have the catbird's seat.

                                                 The view from the far end of the yard

Go down a level to find the family room (cozy as can be!) that opens onto a three-season porch with a hot tub.  The porch is surrounded by terraced gardens.  You have the feeling (in warmer weather) of sitting in a conservatory.  If you want sun - just go out and take a dip in the above ground pool.  Then walk out into the yard...huge trees surround you, giving the sense of privacy.

You have to see for yourself - so come on Sunday!   Price?  $239,900
