HORNELL — The newly renovated single-family home at 148 Terry St. Hornell is now on the market, with open houses slated for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday and 3-6 p.m. Wednesday.

The property was selected by the Steuben County Land Bank Corporation (SCLBC) as part of ongoing efforts to reclaim and rehabilitate abandoned properties.

The Terry Street home was selected by SCLBC last November for rehab after assessments by project manager Arbor Development showed the property could be restored and sold at a reasonable price.

Renovations include a new porch roof, new flooring, walls, kitchen, half bath and windows, lighting and smoke detectors. Other improvements include updates to the home's full bath and electrical systems. An independent corporation, the land bank was approved by the Steuben Legislature in late April 2017 with funds through the state settlements with the nation’s largest banks over misconduct that contributed to the housing crisis.

The board represents a joint effort by county officials and municipalities and includes the city manager of Corning and mayors of the Village of Bath and City of Hornell. The land bank board expects to reduce “neighborhood blight,” keep marketable properties on the tax roll and improve the housing stock in Steuben.

The majority of the properties to be slated for renovation or demolition will be selected from the delinquent real property tax auction.
