Talk about your hot tubs! Check out this red-hot, heart-shaped Jacuzzi tub in a lovely four-bedroom, three-bath home on the market in Wyandanch, listed for $340,000.
Lorraine and Charles Chaney are the original homeowners and oversaw the construction of their home six years ago. During construction, Lorraine was surfing the Web to get ideas on bathroom fixtures. She came across a site that offered an unusual bathtub -- a Valentine’s Day red, heart-shaped Jacuzzi tub with jets on the side and bubblers on the floor.
The company offered free shipping and a promise to not charge the Chaneys until the home was ready to receive the tub. Lorraine was sold.
Before she informed her plumber that he’d be installing a heart-shaped bathtub (he thought it was a joke), she had to convince her husband of the idea. He, too, thought she was joking but eventually went along with the idea.
The tub is used by adults a few times a month or as Lorraine says “when her kids are not using it as a swimming pool.” As far as prospective buyers, the first word out of the mouth is usually “Wow!” as they walk into the room.
Listing agent Miles Moore of Charles Rutenberg Realty in Plainview will be holding an open house from noon to 3 p.m. Feb. 13. The home is located at 744 Mount Ave. in Wyandanch.
