Faced with teenagers who enjoyed going out to the movie theater and a desire to keep them closer to home, the Senatore family of Riverhead decided the best option was the simplest: Build a home movie theater.
The family installed an 11-seat, tiered movie theater in their home, which is now on the market for $379,996. The new addition proved to be a hit, says listing agent Laura Cochran of H&G Realty NY Inc.
“It’s got the little lights on the bottom of the stairs, like when you go to movies,” Cochran says. “That isn’t quite often that you see something like it.”
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom house built in 1991 in Riverhead’s Tall Oaks community also includes a finished basement, in-ground pool, basketball court and 2 1⁄2-car garage.
