A four-bedroom Italianate house built in 1860 on a half acre in Orient is asking $1.79 million. Annual property taxes on the home, which has been owned by the same family since 1863, are $5,047.

The 2,300-square-foot house, on Village Lane, is a stone’s throw from the Peconic River and has hardwood floors, wainscoting, crown molding, cathedral ceilings and an abundance of windows.

“This home is a rare piece of Orient’s history,” said listing agent Lori Feilen of Town and Country Real Estate. “It is a truly beautiful antique home whose architectural details throughout are in original condition.”

Walking into the house is like “stepping back into time, with all of the elegance and details available in 1860,” Feilen said. "It is a very upscale home ready to be adorned with a few modern luxuries.”

The house, which has two bathrooms, has an eat-in kitchen with a large pantry, laundry room, living room, dining room, den and walk-in closets.

The property has a detached garage and a partial basement. It is in the Oysterponds Union Free School District.
