Why Michael Ross chose West Irondequoit
With this house I would start with just sitting and enjoying the quiet. If you live in a busy and noisy place the quiet will give you peace. Next, I would take a walk. This neighborhood is a throw back to another time. People walk their dogs, say hi, and move slowly. The streets have tall mature trees and many of the houses back up to gullies. Then I'd come back to the house, sit on the sun porch, and eat a delicious donut from Ridge Donut Cafe. After that I'd strap on my hiking boots and backpack and drive or ride my bike to Durand Eastman park. I would just wander and get lost in the park. There are so many hills, so many little ponds, so many unique features. Then I'd sit and eat my packed lunch and finally use my smart phone to get back. I'd return to the house and enjoy the company of friends or family followed by a delicious meal. Then as a group we'd head to Durand Eastman beach and walk the beach just before sunset. The next day I'd take my group to Seabreeze Amusement Park. This is an old time park. This is the farthest thing from Disney that you can imagine. You can feel the past here and yet see the present joy in everyone's face. Just watch the people and forget who you think you are. Become a kid again, feel the excitement, but be careful not to go on too many round and around rides. Emptying your stomach is not part of this experience. Instead moderate your riding and consume a funnel cake with powdered sugar. Later, return to the house again and just relax. Maybe grill maybe order food to be delivered. Play a board game. Sit outside around the fire pit. No one will check their phones except to see if grandma called for help. No one would check any social media, email, or news because all that's important right now is in this house. Maybe someone would have some fire crackers or a couple small fireworks. Set them off like teenagers do with the excitement of what you shouldn't do in a quiet neighborhood.
What makes this House unique
There is peace in this home. It is warm. There are thoughtful touches throughout the house. It's perfect for a small group of people to share and enjoy their time together.
