8661 Gaskin Rd., Baldwinsville, NY is a unique and one of the most beautiful properties and this parcel is under a one-acre lot with electric and water hookups, a boat dock and slip (with room to enlarge the slip and make a larger boat dock with roof garage, etc.)  This parcel is in the same county as Syracuse NY which is Onondaga County, NY.


Note: there is no flood zone for any of the homes and lots on the river and has been the case for decades, the Erie Canal lock system assists in the control of water levels as well.  For over 20 years and many consistent days of rain, the water has never even breached the boat dock.  Many neighbors that have owned for over 40 or 50 years have not ever experienced water coming on to their land that would be considered excessive.


Property lot is located on the waterfront of the Historical Old Erie Canal NY state river system and is on the Seneca River portion of the Erie Canal.  This waterfront property is on one of the widest parts of the Seneca river with deep water and across from newly built residential properties in recent years from $400,000 and higher in value.


The river bends like the V portion of a boomerang right at this lot which gives a unique view to both the north and south view of the river and oncoming or passing NY Erie Canal barges, variety of ships/boats, jet skis, kayaks, canoes and related without actually standing at the shoreline, as in most cases where a river is in a straight line, as in most areas of a river.  This is unique and allows owners to sit at picnic tables or bonfires many yards away from the waterfront and view oncoming leisure watercrafts from a longer exceptional viewer point with much longer distance for the viewer.


This parcel has trees for shady areas and open areas without trees.  The trees and older limbs supply ongoing wood for fire pits and bonfires, of which there are two such pits now.  A nice size tool and lawnmower shed will be included with the sale of the lot and has electric in place as well.


The county has approved this parcel for a residential R1 home to be built (see survey blue marker diagram) as a permanent structure and a portion of the property (as is with all such NY Erie Canal similar lots) is owned by the NY State Erie Canal System, however the owner can purchase back this portion to the shoreline from NY State Erie Canal System as is done in most cases with owners of such properties. 


Example:  this would only be needed if the new owner would like to build a new home that would be larger than 2000 square feet or so, which would then need to purchase this NY State owned portion to increase a larger home design and increased square footage.  Any non-permanent structure can be placed on the portion of land that NY state currently owns (NY blue-line on survey) such as small homes, sheds, tool barns, portable car ports, gazebos and related which can be anchored but not permanent foundations or basements, etc.


However, one way around this is to build a home with basement walkout and two floors with a higher 10-foot pitch roof to include a master bedroom or office and exercise room or whatever you want in the insulated attic.  I would include a walkout basement with deck/porch on all the first floor and decks/porches on the second floor and the attic/roof living space portion also, this will give beautiful views from 15 feet to as high as 35/40 feet in heights to see and enjoy the river while eating breakfast, lunch and dinners right on your own waterfront property from the house area or picnicking further down on the land nearer to the actual river, boat dock and one bonfire pit.
