The use of the word “Tara” in a real estate listing for a Nesconset home recently caught our eye. Did the agent use it because of the home's imposing two-story columns on the front of the house? Its majestic foyer with its Y-shaped grand staircase? Its large window in the central landing?
Actually, the developer named this particular model the "Tara Colonial" during construction in the mid-1960s, surely finding inspiration from the Tara plantation home in the 1939 movie "Gone with the Wind." "Well, fiddle-dee-dee!"
Listed for $469,000 with Laurie Rizzo and Patricia Zanone of Shea & Sanders Real Estate, the four-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home with a two-car garage and central air conditioning is in the Sachem Central School District.
"Scarlet" red decking flanks the 16-by-32-foot in-ground pool. But while there’s no "butler" pantry, there is an unusually high number of kitchen cabinets. The new homeowners will "never be hungry again."
This home has been on the market less than two weeks. Interested parties should not think "tomorrow is another day."
