Why it’s for sale. Paul, 63, who works part-time at an auto repair shop he owns with a partner, and his wife, Linda, 66, say they want to retire and move to Florida.

The Pusaks have owned their house for 14 years. The 3,695-square-foot house might have been built with entertaining or vacation living in mind. Paul explains:

“It’s almost like a vacation spot for us. We’re 300 feet from the water and have a boat slip. I have a golf cart I use to get to the boat . . . The Shore Park Estates Homeowners Association has their own marina, beach and common area . . . The only damage from Sandy was outside the house . . . The shrubbery was damaged, and the railroad tie wall had to be re-anchored and the deck repaired . . .

We like the living room because it’s really a family room and it’s large . . . It’s almost like a theater. We have Surround Sound speakers built into the walls . . . There’s new oak flooring in the living room and new granite counters in the kitchen . . . The master bathroom is three years old. And the others have been updated . . . There are 18 houses in the association, and everyone gets along . . . It’s a great neighborhood.”
