Dating to about 1880, this eight-room Colonial in Huntington was originally part of the Park Avenue Dairy Farm. It rests on a quarter of an acre. The first floor includes a living room, a den, a kitchen, a dining room and a half-bath; the second floor has four bedrooms and one bathroom. It also has a partial basement. “The house is in move-in condition, but it would be nice for someone to give it the love it needs,” says the listing agent. In addition, 5 acres of the former dairy farm — complete with mature trees and two ponds — is on the market but deeded separately. There is a synagogue across the street and two historic homes next door. Eventually, the land behind the house may be developed with town homes, the agent adds. Taxes are $3,964.
