Why it’s for sale: Michael, 52, a self-employed capitals markets consultant, says he wants to move closer to work.
Michael Davidson bought his 2,000-square-foot home in the Capt. Kidd Estates area as new construction in 2004. The interior is large and soaring. He shares:
“It basically has a Postmodern look more than a Colonial and has a great open floor plan. One of the original attractions to this area was the proximity to the beach, which is a walk down the block. You can even walk to two vineyards.
"There are hardwood floors throughout the main floor and the bedrooms all have carpeting. There’s a skylight in the second-floor bathroom, and the master bedroom suite has a Jacuzzi tub.
"The house has three decks. There’s a deck off the master bedroom suite, a deck off the dining and kitchen area, and a concrete slab deck off the lower level coming out of the aboveground basement. . . .
"The area is great. It’s very relaxed and laid back. If you’re into that New England type of living, this is perfect.
"If you’re looking for a second home and not interested in the Hamptons scene, this is the place for you. The quality of life here is so phenomenal. It’s a different world. There’s so much going on in the area . . . concerts, wineries.”
