This elegant Victorian, located within walking distance of the Village of Port Jefferson, is “a special home,” says listing agent Evan Greene of Hough & Guidice Realty (631-474-2000).
The historic house, built shortly after the Civil War, was featured several years ago in a holiday-themed house tour during the village’s Charles Dicken Festival.
A pamphlet provided at the tour states the house was one of the homes built along Beach Street by the three Darling brothers — Matthew, Brewster and John — and their descendants, who settled in the area starting in 1832. Matthew and his partner, Sylvester Smith, built and operated two shipyards along this western shore.
The house is in “mint” condition, says Greene, and its current owner has done extensive remodeling while retaining the feel of the home’s past. For example, a distinguishable turret and a large wraparound porch remain while the kitchen has been enlarged and updated with Viking appliances and granite features.
The house has two bedrooms, two full baths, a formal dining and an outdoor Jacuzzi. It is situated on a quarter of an acre of property with views of Port Jefferson Harbor.
It’s on the market for $479,990.
