Auto enthusiasts may fall in love with this Ronkonkoma house for its detached 900-square-foot custom garage.
“The garage is a car buff’s dream,” says Stacy Menno of Realty Connect USA in Hauppauge, who is marketing the house for $409,000.
Built to specification, the four-car garage with 12-foot ceiling is ventilated and has its own electricity, heat and cable as well as a drive-on car lift. “It’s nicely laid out, very clean and well organized,” says homeowner and hobbyist Richard Polizzi. “I build cars from scratch -- I do it all. I’m the guy without the TV show.”
The garage also has a side porch.
The house -- a nine-room ranch with five bedrooms and three bathrooms -- has wood floors, a fireplace and a wood-burning stove. “I have a great kitchen for anyone who loves to cook,” says his wife, MaryAnn. It’s outfitted with a six-burner Garland stove and two commercial ovens as well as a walk-through butler’s pantry.
Other features include a finished basement with a gym, an outdoor deck and swimming pool, and an attached one-car garage.
