A pond in the yard in South Huntington
Perhaps one of the sweetest features of this parklike property in South Huntington is its natural pond. The pond, which is shared with a neighbor, covers about an acre and has a small dock.
It’s large enough to accommodate a rowboat or a canoe, says Gayle Snyder of Coach Realtors, who is marketing the property and its 10-room farm ranch for $769,000.
In the winter, when the pond freezes, it’s great for skating and playing ice hockey, Snyder adds.
Stocked with fish, the pond attracts a variety of birds, including blue herons, as well as ducks, mallards, turtles and frogs.
“It’s like an upstate wildlife wonderland,” Snyder says. The property includes two deeded 1-acre lots and a two-story barn, she says.
Set back from the road, the updated house features wood floors, a fireplace, two skylights, a set of French doors and moldings. There are five bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms. Right off the renovated eat-in kitchen is a sunroom, from which the property can be admired.
