Why it’s for sale Maureen, 64, a real estate agent, and Kevin, 72, a semi-retired hotel manager, say they’re moving to Wisconsin to be closer to family.

The Morans’ 1,425-square-foot home “lives larger than it looks,” says Maureen Moran:

“When we bought in 2010, we wanted a home that was one-level living, close to Huntington and on a level, private lot. . . . We remodeled the kitchen in 2016 to open it up to the living room and dining room for entertaining space. The third bedroom has an attached bathroom that was once a garage. The former owners used it as their master bedroom. We use it as a third bedroom/den.

“The other two bedrooms are large because they were once three room. We remodeled one of the bedrooms to include more closets and create a separate entrance to the second full bath. . . . The house has a good roommate layout. One side is a bedroom and a full bath and the other side is two bedrooms and a full bath. The bathrooms were renovated in 2012 and 2016. . . . The community has a great ‘surban’ feel (a combination of suburban and urban). The backyard, which is fully fenced, has a paver patio with room for a fire pit. . . . During Sandy, we lost our power for only six hours. In every other storm, the houses across the street and down the street have no electricity and we’re fully powered. We must be on a sturdy grid. . . . I wish we could move this home to Wisconsin with us.”
