Valley Stream home comes with bamboo fence
The custom bamboo fencing around this Valley Stream ranch on the market for $380,000 provides not only privacy but also a different look, says listing agent Maria Squitieri of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
The property’s fencing was flown in from California and is composed of individual bamboo stalks, which are organized in a neat line.
“It’s pretty much maintenance free,” Squitieri says. “You know bamboo — you can’t kill the stuff.”
The house also has a mural of two large dolphins and one small dolphin in one of the bedrooms.
The owner painted the mural to reflect their family of three, Squitieri says.
On the same wall is a painted saying: “Put your footprints on the moon,” which means that anyone can do anything they put their mind to.
Other features of the three-bedroom, one-bath house include hardwood floors, a modern kitchen and a one-car garage.
