With its old-fashioned sundial, this 1935 Mattituck farmhouse listed for $437,500 takes you back in time.
The sundial, which tells the time of day based on the position of the sun, is on the front of the house just beneath the roof. It consists of a dial with Roman numerals and a gnomon that casts a shadow to indicate the time.
“The time is absolute on it. It works perfectly,” says listing agent Thomas McCarthy of Thomas J. McCarthy Real Estate. “This is the only house in the area with a sundial, so a lot of people use it as a touchstone. When you say ‘the sundial house,’ people really know it.”
The home features three bedrooms, a living room, formal dining room and one bathroom. The renovated kitchen includes a farmhouse sink, quartz countertops and a custom African bubinga wood countertop.
A den with a fireplace was added a number of years ago, as was a high-efficiency gas boiler, McCarthy says.
The 0.32-acre property includes a rear patio and a detached 1 1⁄2-car garage. Taxes are $7,280.
