Home buyers who are susceptible to bargains may find what they’re looking for in this East Patchogue property, which offers two houses for one price.
The nearly 2-acre property on Great South Bay is on the market for $589,000. In addition to the main house, a turn-of-the-last-century Colonial with five bedrooms and three bathrooms, there is a contemporary guesthouse (shown) with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with a living room, dining room and eat-in kitchen. Combined, it totals 2,200 square feet of space.
The property has 65 feet of waterfront, says listing agent Ann Bartonik of RE/MAX Platinum in Selden, adding that the house is set back far enough that it stayed dry during superstorm Sandy.
The deal also includes some history. Local lore has it that the house was used by rum runners during Prohibition.
