Choose a school, any one of three
It’s not often you can buy a house that allows you to pick from a choice of schools. But this one for sale in East Moriches does.
Set on a 273-by-156-foot lot, the 10-room Georgian Colonial offers a choice of three high schools — Westhampton, Center Moriches, or Eastport-South Manor Junior-Senior High School, says Ron Guzas, owner/broker of Atlantic Shores Realty Corp., who is marketing the home for $795,000.
“You don’t find that situation very often,” says Guzas, explaining that the East Moriches school district only goes up to the eighth grade, thereby providing students with a choice of nearby districts. “A lot of people don’t even know about it, and when they find out, they like that feature.”
Built in 1995, the 4,000-square-foot house backs onto a preserve with a pond and features wood floors, moldings and three fireplaces.
