You know what’s better than having one basement? Having two. Such is the case with this eight-room split-level in Plainview.
And that’s just the way the original homeowner wanted it, says a family member.
When the house was under construction, a second basement was dug below the original to accommodate the heating system as well as a workshop.
Since the second basement was added, the house is raised by about three feet, says Lisa LePorin of Charles Ruttenberg Realty, who is marketing the home with Michelle Norris.
LePorin notes that unlike other homes in the neighborhood, this house has a few steps leading to the front door.
The house is listed for $679,000.
