An array of nature views are available from three levels of decking at this four-bedroom, three-bath Port Jefferson Contemporary-style home listed for $529,000.
Built into a hill on a 0.51-acre lot in 1985, the house comes with a mahogany deck accessible via exterior stairs and through doors in the upper level’s breakfast room and master bedroom suite.
“The deck kind of feels like a tree house,” says owner Barbara Miller, who has lived there 15 years. “We have woods that slope on a hill down to the road below. You’re surrounded by nature on the deck — it’s a really pretty place to be able to go.”
Stairs ascend to a small deck over the breakfast room, which leads to a circular rooftop deck atop the dining room.
“On the Fourth of July, you can see the fireworks in Connecticut,” she says.
The home includes numerous skylights, starting with those in the foyer. A living room flows into a formal dining room; both feature large, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows.
“Watching the snow fall from those big windows is beautiful,” Miller says.
The stainless-steel kitchen is finished with granite surfaces and new tile floors. It also has new Andersen windows, which are found throughout the residence. Additional recent improvements include a new roof and updated bathrooms.
Three bedrooms, including a master-bedroom suite with new flooring and foliage views, are on the main floor. The fourth bedroom is in a walkout lower level, which has a full bath, a living room with a fireplace and an office.
Down the stairs from the deck, there is a stone slate path and a small patio, Miller says. The home includes central air conditioning, three-zone heat, in-ground sprinklers and a two-car attached garage.
