A center-hall Colonial on Bay Eighth Street in West Islip is on the market for $769,999. Built in 1920 as a two-bedroom, one-bath ranch, the home was transformed in 2010 into a 2,384-square-foot space with four bedrooms and 2½ baths, according to the listing agent, Helene Mendez of Signature Premier Properties in Babylon.
“It’s in turnkey condition,” Mendez said. “My favorite room is the master bedroom, which has a 13-foot ceiling and two large walk-in closets. And when you come up the stairs, there’s a huge landing, which is beautiful.”
In addition, there’s a second-floor laundry room. The eat-in-kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. A sliding glass door leads to a deck and a fenced-in yard, which also has a fire pit and an above-ground pool.
The 0.19-acre plot also has a paved driveway and a one-car garage. There’s no basement.
The home comes with access to the nearby Babylon Beach Estates Association on the Great South Bay, with an annual membership fee of $280 and a $250 initiation fee.
Annual taxes are $16,184 and flood insurance is $2,260. The house is in the West Islip Union Free School District. The owners, who are moving out of state, need to remain in the home through the school year, Mendez said.
Open houses will be held April 30 and May 1.
