Why it’s for sale Palermo, 88, a retired department store saleswoman, says she is downsizing and moving closer to family.

Palermo says she’s going to miss her home that’s tucked into a beautiful area in Jamesport.

“My husband and I designed this house and had it built in 1998  . . . I spend a lot of time in my beautiful kitchen. I love to cook and bake, and I used to do canning, too. The kitchen is very sunny. It has a beautiful southern exposure. My plants are happy about it, too . . . I also spend time out on the wraparound porch. And because the house is right off Peconic Bay Boulevard, Peconic Bay is only about a half-mile away. There’s a town beach there that is perfect for families . . . There are hardwood oak floors throughout the common areas of the home except for the kitchen and baths . . . We’ve had big family dinners here for years. It’s a perfect age-in-place home. There are no stairs to worry about other than the two steps into the garage or the three steps to the porch. When I open the doors in the kitchen, I get a breeze like you can’t imagine. There’s a nice deck off the kitchen, too. I’m going to miss this house, especially my beautiful master bedroom with its big closets. It’s just a beautiful house and property. And there’s been a lot of love in this house.”
