An expanded ranch-style home on a corner lot in Hicksville is listing for $679,000. The annual property taxes are $9,284.
The four-bedroom, 2½-bath house has hardwood floors, central air, a two-car garage and recently updated roof and windows.
"It’s great for entertaining, because it has a very nice yard. It has a gunite pool and a pond," says listing agent Donna Scala, of Laffey Real Estate, adding, "The downstairs is nice because it’s a walkout to the yard. It’s a family room now with a full bath, and you can walk out to the yard, which is really nice for entertaining purposes."
"What makes it special is the neighborhood: The neighbors are fantastic. We’ve lived in that house for over 30 years and it’s been a fantastic party house. said owner Joe Gomez, who is relocating to Florida, adding, "It was an excellent, excellent place to raise our children and be: just very safe, just perfect."
The 0.19-acre property is in the northern section of Hicksville.
"You’re very close to the Broadway Mall," says Scala. "You have an Asian market called H Mart, which is very, very popular. And you’re very close to all the highways: the Northern State, the expressway; very close to the train. So, it’s an extremely convenient location."
