Single-family homes for Rent in Corning, NY

Nestled in the idyllic landscape of upstate New York, the charming town of Corning invites you to embrace its serenity, hugging the gentle flow of the Chemung River. While the name may conjure images of a renowned glass manufacturer, this place is more than a mere moniker; it’s often celebrated as one of America’s most delightful hidden gems. Yet, appearances can be deceiving, because beyond its quaint exterior, you’ll discover attractions and activities waiting to be uncovered. Choosing to reside in one of the single-family homes at Northside Place signifies the beginning of an exciting new journey within this thriving and vibrant locale.

Northside Place: Discover the Hidden Gem for Your Next Home 

Northside Place is a unique new unique apartment community. With single-family one and two-story homes that come complete with a garage and unfinished basement for plenty of storage, you’ll feel like you’re living in a suburban neighborhood while getting all the perks that come with apartment living. 

We’ll handle snow removal, lawn maintenance and landscaping for you. Imagine having a beautifully landscaped yard, yet having your weekends and evenings free to explore Corning or relax with a drink and a movie at home. Picture frosty winter mornings, knowing you’ll be able to get out to work or shop without shoveling snow first. Think about the joy of having the benefits of owning a home, like having a private yard, your own garage, and having pets, but without the burden of a high-interest mortgage and property taxes, being responsible for repairs, or worrying about property values. 

Let your two-car garage protect your vehicles, regardless of the weather. No need for ice scrapers or umbrellas when it’s time to drive the kids to school or when you get home from work. Don’t worry about tripping over bicycles, storage boxes, and other things that you might have kept in the garage or in a storage unit until now. Instead, put those things in your unfinished basement! Whether you’re storing a kayak for the winter or a sled until tomorrow, the basement provides ample storage space for no extra fees and no drive to a storage facility.

Stainless steel appliances including a washer and dryer, elegant quartz countertops, and luxurious yet easy-to-clean vinyl plank flooring are just the first things you’ll find in your beautiful new home. You’ll also love the frameless tiled showers with glass doors, large kitchen island and pantry, beautiful modern cabinetry, and the huge walk-in closet in the primary bedroom. 

Our pet-friendly homes come with a private patio, fiber optic network, and 24-hour emergency maintenance so you enjoy all the modern amenities. All you have to do is move in and clean. We handle the rest. When you’re ready to head out for a weekend adventure or a night on the town, you’re just a short walk or drive away from shopping, dining, entertainment, and a quaint little pocket park. Just minutes from Market Street, you’ll find no shortage of things to do, and with the Chemung River flowing through Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes so close, summertime water activities are fair game.

  • Date Night or Girls’ Night Out? Check out Hand and Foot, where you can get cozy at a table for two or join others at the long, communal table. Play board games while you wait for your meal or sneak a peek at what others are eating to decide what you want. Insider tip: They make their Greek Salad with peppadew peppers instead of tomatoes and it’s so good!

Transformation of Northside Place: From High School to Home 

Northside Place stands on land that has witnessed more than a century of history. Its roots trace back to the opening of the first Northside High School building in 1887, followed by a second structure in 1908. However, it was the grand edifice erected in 1927 that etched itself into the cherished memories of countless Corning residents.

For nearly four decades, this structure served as Northside High School, a hub of education and community. In 1963, it transformed into Northside Middle School and later became Northside Blodgett Middle School. Then, in 2014, the final chapter unfolded as the school closed its doors, and in 2018, the building was laid to rest. For many long-time residents, this marked the bittersweet end of an era, laden with memories.

With more than a century’s worth of history ingrained in this ground, it wasn’t merely a blank canvas on which to construct beautiful homes for rent. This place carried a character, a spirit of its own. We paid homage to this character not just through the construction of these residences but by erecting a monument, ensuring that the legacy of what came before would endure.

As new families write their own stories within these walls, they too will honor and remember those who walked this space before them. The echoes of the past continue to resonate, creating a bridge between generations and preserving the rich tapestry of Northside Place’s history.
