A nature lover could put a green thumb to good use at this custom Colonial in Nissequogue. It is listed for $950,000.
The four-bedroom, 3.5-bath residence is on 2.17 acres filled with an assortment of specimen plantings and trees, organic gardens, flower beds, fig trees and ornamental bushes, says listing agent Rose Sidoti of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. She is co-listing with Janet Smiley.
Living in the home, which was built in 1999 on a landing surrounded by trees, is “like living in a tree house,” Sidoti says, and the front porch is “a beautiful place for people to sit out, have some coffee” and enjoy the surroundings, she adds.
An open floor plan includes a family room with 12-foot ceilings and a fireplace, a formal dining room, an oversized living room and an eat-in kitchen, which has granite countertops and a breakfast area. Wood floors, decorative moldings and arches are found throughout the home.
A wide staircase leads to the second floor, which includes a master bedroom with a full bath en suite, three additional bedrooms and a full bath. The finished lower level includes a sauna, a wet bar, a cedar closet and a full bathroom.
More than 3,000 square feet of paver stones are incorporated into the property’s landscaping, Sidoti says, creating a large stone patio and stone walls that wrap around walkways and flower beds. There is also a koi pond with waterfalls and a hilltop stone bench that can accommodate a gazebo.
The property is irrigated by an 11-zone in-ground sprinkler system.
