This home in Head of the Harbor listed for $879,945 and offers an appealing compromise — plenty of privacy and access to major roads.

The acre of property is nestled in a wooded, sparsely-populated cul-de-sac. Homeowner Marissa Salierno says it’s ideal for commuters like herself.

“This still creates the Head of Harbor feel but you have North Country Road right there. It’s the best of both worlds,” Salierno says.

The house was built in 2002 and features a brick Colonial exterior. The interior was renovated with the help of an interior decorator when Salierno and her husband moved in several years ago.

Measuring 3,200 square feet, the five-bedroom, three-bathroom home features restored hardwood flooring, new carpeting and a modern design unusual compared to the older, traditional houses nearby.

The property is listed by Jon David Lenard of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
