This circa-1935 Riverhead Colonial listed for $359,000 retains many design features dating back to its original owner, a Riverhead Town attorney and judge.
The three-bedroom, two-bath residence built by Isidore and Sophie Scheinberg includes a fireplace with a hand-carved mantel; crown moldings in the living and formal dining rooms; oak and pine floors; leaded glass windows around the front door and the fireplace; and a bathroom with original subway tile.
The current owners, who purchased the home in 2013, unearthed the wooden floors, says listing agent Sean Nethercott of Brown Harris Stevens.
“The entire home was wall-to-wall carpeting and really only linoleum in the kitchen — all of which was pulled up to reveal pine floors in the kitchen and oak floors through the rest of the house in near brand-new condition,” he says.
A poured-concrete foundation with a stamped pattern and a steel I-beam support the touches of vintage elegance, and are unique underpinnings for the period, the listing agent says.
“It was really built to last,” Nethercott says.
Modern creature comforts in the 1,943-square-foot home include a new gas burner, central air-conditioning and a wood-burning fireplace insert. Outside, there are decades-old hydrangea trees and rhododendrons. The fenced property includes irrigation, a hot tub and a stone patio.
