After having restored the house and enjoying all the beauty, the DeStefanos recently decided to bring their home to the market for $ 699.900. The time is ripe to be reduced and to a smaller place closer to the Her husband's work in Perinton, said Kim DeStefano.

With the concept of the lake in mind, the walnut floors in the large room are accentuated by a stone lazy river. The house is ideal for entertainment, host families and friends, said Kim DeStefano.

There is 142 feet of water frontage on Lake Ontario on the estate. You can view the sunrise and sunset on Lake Ontario, unlike the Finger Lakes where you choose the eastern or western side, said Realtor Rich Testa of Hunt Real Estate, the listing agent.

Testa markets the house locally and in cities such as New York and Boston. The price tag of $ 699,900 is very attractive to people in the biggest cities, because estates in the vicinity of big cities could cost millions, Testa said. The annual property tax on 3385 Lake Road is currently just over $ 19,000, Testa added. Because the house is high with a stone beach, the rising lake level was not a problem, Testa said.
