Why it’s for sale Marilyn, 74, a real estate broker, and Chuck 77, a retired schoolteacher, say they want to live in an HOA community but stay nearby.

The Triolos did a renovation in 1990, 10 years after moving in. Marilyn says:

“We bought the house because of its location and the direct access to the Connetquot River and Great South Bay. There’s 194 feet of bulkhead plus a built-in boat slip. We’ve had many boats; the largest was 28 feet. Our children and, now, grandchildren love to go waterskiing, fishing and crabbing and also ice skating in the winter.  It’s a wonderful lifestyle here. …The home was originally a Cape. We loved the property more than anything and engaged an architect in 1989. Staying within the original footprint, the house was raised four feet and converted to a Victorian. The only damage we had during [superstorm] Sandy was water in crawlspace. …We love the living room with the vaulted ceiling. Two oval windows above the fireplace provide a lot of brightness.  

We have a lot of wonderful memories here. The stair railing and fireplace always get decorated for family weddings and holidays. We have a 19½-foot dining room that’s been the center of many dinners with family and friends. The opening between the living room and dining room — stationary glass panels on both sides of the opening — was a nice idea I saw in Architectural Digest."
