This circa-1823 Cape-style home in Laurel is set on 0.46 private acres and surrounded by park and preserve land. It is listed for $329,000.
The 1,200-square-foot residence with two bedrooms was originally home to the minister of the Presbyterian church in Mattituck, who raised 13 children in the home, says listing agent Maryse Bransfield of Town & Country Real Estate.
The first floor features a living room, formal dining room, kitchen and bedroom. An additional room, which was enclosed within the last two decades, is believed to have originally been a livestock or “cold” room, says Bransfield. Upstairs, there is a bright, large open bedroom with exposed beams.
The home, which Bransfield says has been in the same family for three generations, contains wide-plank hardwood floors and a pair of original stone fireplaces. Rustic, hand-hewn wood accents, such as the fireplace mantels and dining room arch moldings, are plentiful.
North Fork wineries, beaches and farm stands are a short distance from the property, which is also adjacent to the Laurel Lake Preserve, says Bransfield.
