A Huntington Bay property listed for $1.95 million includes a six-bedroom house and, across the street, an A-frame cottage, as well as a deck, floating dock and a fish pond.
Built in the early 1900s, the home on Huntington Harbor has belonged to Bob and Pattie Friemann for 21 years. Bob Friemann says the couple is downsizing to a condo and will depart with great reluctance.
“To be honest with you, when we decided to put it on the market, we had lots of second thoughts,” he says. “It’s like being on vacation all the time.”
The 0.82-acre property lies within the gated community of Wincoma, whose homeowners association owns several acres of waterfront property, including a private beach and barbecue area. But the next owners won’t have to leave home to have fun, Friemann notes, listing the 31-by-24-foot waterfront deck and a 35,000-gallon backyard fish pond.
The main house’s kitchen is anchored by a stainless-steel, commercial-grade range and hood. Other features include a master bedroom with a coffered ceiling and renovated en suite bath, multizone central air conditioning, and a detached two-car garage. The cottage boasts a kitchen of its own, a full bathroom and a wood-burning fireplace.
“It’s a great place to live,” Friemann says. “It will be hard for us to walk away. It’s really a marvelous home.”
The property is listed with Suzanne and Brian Asher of Signature Premier Properties.
