WHY IT'S FOR SALE. Katerina, 48, and Nicholas, 47, own a Deer Park auto parts manufacturing company for high-performance vehicles. They are moving to shorten the commute.
Nestled on nearly a full acre, the Filippides’ four-bedroom, three-bath home was built in 2001 and has 1,850 square feet of living space and an attached 2½-car garage. Katerina talks about her North Fork property:
“It’s very quiet and private. . . . We have a beautiful view of sunsets in the backyard. It’s all open space in the back and will not be built on. . . . We have a beautiful backyard deck with a retractable awning. We spend a lot a time there, and we do a lot of entertaining. . . . The kitchen, living room and dining room are all open. . . . There’s a lot of storage in the house. There are closets everywhere. Every bathroom has its own linen closet. . . . There are hardwood floors throughout the house. . . . We completely renovated the master bathroom 18 months ago with new tile, a granite counter and custom cabinets. . . . The fourth bedroom is downstairs, and we use it as a family room. . . . When the house was being built, we paid for extra items. There’s a moisture barrier in the basement floor and the exterior walls of the foundation."
