A 1,192-square-foot three-bedroom, one-bath Levittown Cape is on the market for $499,000.
Built in 1948, the house on Glen Lane, like many Levitt homes, has been expanded, with a dormer added to one of the upstairs bedrooms and the 1½-car garage connected to the house, says Stephen Zappalla of Keller Williams Realty Elite, who is listing the house with Josh Handler.
“It used to be detached, but what a lot of Levittown owners did was include that breezeway so you can go straight into it without going outside,” Zappalla says.
The house has an open living room/dining room, with a wood-burning stove in the living room. new boiler, and 200 amp electric.
“A typical Levittown lot is 60-by-100,” says Zappalla. “This is a corner lot — that’s 70-by-100, so you got an additional 1,000 square feet on the lot size.”
The house is near pools and parks, including Hempstead Town's MacLaren Stadium's ballfields and playground, as well as the Wantagh, Northern State and Southern State parkways.
Many buyers from Queens and other New York City boroughs have been showing interest in the area, Zappalla says. “Levittown has just been a very desirable area given the location, given the price point and also given the school district,” he says.
The 0.16-property, which is fenced in, is in the Levittown Union Free School District. The annual property taxes are $12,203; an offer is pending.
