This restored circa-1920 Patchogue Colonial, now listed for $318,000, is landscaped so that it bursts with color all year long.
Throughout the 115-by-170-foot parcel, plantings include tulips, daffodils, toad lilies, several varieties of roses, peonies, poppies, bearded Iris, hostas, geraniums and more, says listing agent Frances Montera of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. She is co-listing with Bruce Grabowski.
Views of the lush surroundings are plentiful from the home’s front porch and backyard deck.
“Spring, summer, winter or fall, you will have blossoms and foliage,” she says.
An extensive series of updates and improvements earned the bright and light-filled home a recent Patchogue Pride award, presented by Village Hall for noteworthy neighborhood beautification efforts.
Original features in the three-bedroom, 1.5-bath home include refurbished wood floors and trim in the living and dining rooms. A staircase is trimmed with original spindles, Montera says, and a “drop-dead gorgeous” full unfinished attic has dark wood floors and ceiling trim.
The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry and a new backsplash and countertops. Plumbing and electrical systems have been updated, as have the gas burner, windows and roof, Montera says. A bathroom was updated about a year ago, she adds.
In addition to the extensive landscaping, the property includes a restored one-car detached garage and a sprinkler system.
