A Port Jefferson Contemporary home listed for $699,000 includes summertime amenities such as a free-form in-ground pool with a waterfall and tiki bar.
Owner Claire Rubman says the attraction was immediate when she was house-hunting 19 years ago.
“I had never seen anything like that in my life,” she says.
The four-bedroom home with two full baths and two half-baths includes a master-bedroom suite with an office loft, an en-suite black marble bath and Juliet balcony, as well as a soundproofed, seven-recliner home theater in the finished lower level.
“There’s not too many Contemporaries in the Port Jeff area, and if there are, they’re nothing like this one,” says listing agent Peter Lunde of Coach Realtors.
A dining room with 20-foot ceilings and a balcony above is a favorite family gathering spot, Rubman says. The renovated kitchen has quartz countertops, ceramic tile floors and fiber optic lighting. It opens to a covered deck that is carved out of the squared-off rear of the home and overlooks the pool.
The half-acre parcel has in-ground sprinklers and plantings including rose of Sharon trees, hostas, day lilies, carnations and forsythia bushes, Rubman says. There is an outdoor solar shower and backyard access to a full bathroom.
Bathrooms throughout have been renovated. The home has four-zone HVAC, a two-year-old Buderus oil burner, an attached 1 1⁄2 -car garage and a flat roof ideal for solar panels, Rubman says.
