WavePoint Realty’s purchase of the former Carriage House plant in Fredonia was the highest recorded sale in Chautauqua County in 2023. The former plant sold for $6 million.

In 2023, Chautauqua County saw 29 real estate sales of $1 million or higher, with more than a third of them for single family homes.

The Post-Journal and OBSERVER have been analyzing real estate sales in Chautauqua County. Of the 29 sales that were seven figures last year, 16 were businesses, 11 were residences, and two were sales that included multiple addresses in a single transaction.

By towns, Busti and Chautauqua both had the most with six each. All of Busti’s six sales were in the village of Lakewood, while four of Chautauqua town’s sales were on the Institution grounds. Ellery had four sales, with one of them in the village of Bemus Point. Ellicott and Pomfret had three sales each, with two of Pomfret’s sales in the village of Fredonia. The town of Dunkirk and the city of Dunkirk had two sales each. The city of Jamestown and the towns of Gerry and North Harmony each had one seven-figure sale.


For the 16 businesses that were $1 million or higher, there were four sales in the town of Busti (all in the village of Lakewood), three sales in the town of Ellicott, two sales in the town of Dunkirk, two sales in the city of Dunkirk, two sales in the town of Pomfret (one of which was in the village of Fredonia), one sale in the town of Chautauqua, and one sale in the city of Jamestown.

The Gerry Dollar General was one of two new businesses that were sold in 2023 that topped $1 million.

The biggest sale was the former ConAgra Plant in Fredonia, which was sold for $6 million. It was purchased by Wavepoint Realty and is being used for warehousing. There were six other warehouse and/or manufacturing plant sales. They occurred in the city of Dunkirk (former Allegany-Erie, Inc. and former Kraft/Conagra Warehouse now used by Refresco), village of Lakewood (former Premiere Lakewood, Inc.) and two in the town of Ellicott (Dawson Metals Finishing Services and Water Street manufacturing and warehouse facility).

For existing businesses that changed ownership, sales included the Wealth Management Center building in Lakewood, Jamestown Veterinary Hospital, Lakewood Post Office, Taco Bell in Lakewood, Jamestown Auto Center in Ellicott, Shults Resale Center in town of Dunkirk, and WellNow Urgent Care in the town of Dunkirk.

It was purchased in 2023 for $2.2 million after being sold in 2022 for $1.01 million. The new owners have also purchased properties neighboring the former golf course.

The remaining two sales are new businesses – Dollar General in Gerry, which was sold the day it opened, and Range Ranch in the town of Pomfret. The mission of Range Ranch is to serve veterans of the military in a variety of ways, including creating a therapeutic environment to connect veterans with animals to assist with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other trauma-related issues.
