How About Riverfront
Many people only dream of owning waterfront property never actually thinking it can become a reality. But it can if you research and plan wisely. Often people limit their thoughts to large popular lakes or tourist destinations and thus think the affordability is not possible. That is just one more amazing factor to living in the Adirondacks. There is water everywhere. Think about the benefits to living along a river or large stream. You have all the same perks along with a few advantages. Living on the river offers a nice quiet place to step out your front door and instantly connect with nature. You have instant access to the Adirondack wildlife and seasonal activities such as boating, fishing, hiking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. It’s like being on vacation every weekend!
If you do your homework, purchasing riverfront property is much more cost effective than a lakefront home. Often times choosing to buy riverfront property can be less costly both in the initial cost and for property taxes. If you are really into nature there are many ways to utilize the natural resources around you to build your home and make it eco-friendly and energy efficient. Also because riverfront tends not to be as desirable as lakefront, it is usually more peaceful and tranquil.
Purchasing waterfront property is not only and investment in your future. It is an investment in your mental and physical well being!
