An expanded farm ranch on a pastoral acre in Fort Salonga is on the market for $1.299 million.

The area abounds in nature, says owner Grace Santora, who has a chicken coop and a plethora of plants that attract birds and butterflies.

“We’ve brought in a lot of farm-to-table aspects of it,” says Santora, who’s owned the house since 2014 and is moving out of state. “We’re able to bring in the eggs. And, we’ve got strawberry patches, some raspberry bushes.”

Built in 1958, the 4,256-square-foot five-bedroom, four-bathroom home on Northfield Drive features an open floor plan, hardwood floors, an oversized kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counters, family room with cathedral wood beamed ceiling, and dining room with slatted wood ceiling.

Most of the house has been updated within the last 10 years, including the kitchen and bathrooms, notes Santora, who installed new insulation, wiring, a cesspool and, most recently, a new HVAC system.

Zoned for the Kings Park Central School District, the home has annual property taxes of $21,181.

“The property surrounding this house is absolutely bucolic, and inside the rooms are very spacious, and the kitchen is most impressive,” says listing agent Elyse Weigers of Prime Properties Long Island.

“The layout is perfection for entertaining and someone who truly enjoys cooking.”

“You hear the birds chirping all the time,” says Santora. “It’s really special.”
