How can two separate rooms share one fireplace? It's simple. The dual fireplace in this 10-room Colonial, on the market for $659,000 at 54 Fairway East in Sayville, was built between the living room and the sunroom. Each side has a distinctive style.
The living room, in the home at 54 Fairway Easy in Sayville, sports a traditional 1930s custom pink mantel, while the sunroom side is brick with a white mantel. These rooms are accessible via a set of French doors on either side of the fireplace.
A second fireplace -- centered on a wall of glass -- is in the great room of the Sayville home, where there is another wall of glass. This room is right off the kitchen, which is appointed with custom cabinets and granite countertops.
Other features throughout the house, at 54 Fairway East in Sayville, include oak and Brazilian cherrywood floors, recessed lighting and high ceilings. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
