Within walking distance of the downtown area, this legal two-family high-ranch is on a corner quarter-acre parcel. Since the location is GST (goods and services tax) zoned, the owner can operate a non-retail commercial business, such as a day care center or a veterinarian office. (A definition is posted on the Town of Islip website.) The house has two electric meters and central air-conditioning on the main level. Of 10 rooms, there are six bedrooms -- three up and three down. There are two bathrooms on the main level and one bathroom on the second floor.

Other features include two laundry rooms and winter water views. There are five bedrooms and three updated bathrooms.
