There’s a diverse selection of homes in the area. In the Sedgwick area you’ll find the classic English Tudor home. Other architectural homes of yesteryear can be found in the Strathmore area, where you’ll see Mediterranean and Spanish style homes, while enchanting Colonials can be found in Genesee Park or Bradford Hills. Is contemporary more your style? You’ll discover Cape Cod homes, Ranch-style homes, Condos, and even Log Cabins with beautiful nature views. And new construction can be found in many of the sub-divisions that are emerging to accommodate the ever-growing population of Syracuse, New York.
To the North: Charming Communities
To the north you'll find three desirable communities: North Syracuse (home to the first plank road in the United States and the
Syracuse Hancock International Airport), Cicero (the fastest growing town in Central New York), and Central Square (a small community where the city life starts to wind down).These northern suburbs of Syracuse have peaceful neighborhoods and are close to everything. Shoppers can enjoy many local stores and other businesses that are also short trips from home. In Cicero, especially, you'll find more rural areas geared toward a country lifestyle. Although this area is quite spread out, you always seem to run into someone you know.
To the East: Where Suburbia Begins
East Syracuse is home to the Carrier Air Conditioning Plant and also New Venture Gear – the world’s largest designer and manufacturer of 4-wheel drive transfer cases and other driveline products. The East Syracuse area encompasses a small village that reaches into a well-established community. A ride through Franklin Park’s beautifully landscaped neighborhood lends to the charm of the area. A short walk down West Manlius St. to Kinne St. brings you to Hercule’s Candies, where a third-generation family business has brought homemade candies to the locals since 1901. The East Syracuse Minoa School District is one of the best. It offers easy access from I-690, which runs right through the middle of Syracuse, connecting the east and the west. With its well-kept surroundings, friendly neighbors, and close proximity to shopping, East Syracuse is a great place to live.
To the West: Rolling Hills and Golf Courses
In the rolling hills just west of Syracuse, past Westvale and Fairmount, is the alluring town of Camillus. Discover how easily this bustling community blends city and countryside harmoniously. If golf is your sport, you’ll want to check out courses like West Hill Golf Course, Pine Grove Country Club, and Westvale Golf Course, just to name a few. But golf isn’t the only activity. The Town of Camillus Parks & Recreation Department makes sure that there’s fun for the whole community. With 8 parks, covering over 850 acres, these parks offer plenty of year round sports and recreation activities.
To the South: Tranquil Scenery
Tully and Lafayette are two communities that offer a quality way of life. Just to the south of Central New York, Tully is the home of beautiful natural landscapes, filled with rolling hills and inviting lakes. Erosion from the great glaciers of the ice formed long, steep hill slopes, making them ideal for skiing. Song Mountain, Snow Ridge, Greek Peak and Toggenberg are just a few of the local ski resorts. Head south out of Syracuse on I-81 and you’ll come to Lafayette, home to the Fall Apple Festival and home-baked apple pies. Rt. 20 runs through town, meeting up with Pompey to the east, and Cardiff to the west.
