They'll all scream for this Manorville house
A Manorville ranch-style home on the market for $999,000 offers a fun feature to bring out the kid in anyone.
Owners Paul and Margaret Dill toyed with the idea of building a wine cellar next to their big-screen media room in the finished basement but decided on something his grandchildren and her nieces and nephews could enjoy — an ice cream bar.
“They love ice cream,” says Margaret, adding that the setup has two refrigerated compartments and an ice cream maker.
The nearby media room has Surround Sound and built-in shelves that can hold more than 3,000 DVDs, a sweet place to watch a movie after a treat.
The house, built in 1996, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. Listing agent Elizabeth Mattero of Signature Homes of New York says it is “a great place for entertaining” with an open main-level floor plan that includes a great room with vaulted ceilings and oak floors, skylights, a fireplace, a full-size bar with a soda system and a formal dining room. There are two kitchens, one with double-stack pizza ovens, an industrial fryer and a commercial Garlan stove.
The 6.7-acre parcel has a covered barbecue area with two grills and a refrigerator, a wraparound deck and an attached three-car garage.
