A Colonial brick house in the Old Canterbury section of Rockville Centre is on the market for $949,000.
The 2,572-square-foot home, now under contract, boasts four big bedrooms and can host large gatherings. “It has a lot of potential, and it’s in a desirable area,” says listing agent Carol O'Leary, of Coach Real Estate Association. The house is within walking distance of Hempstead Lake, and a 10-minute drive to highly rated restaurants, the Long Island Rail Road, Mercy Medical Center and Rockville Links Golf Club.
Built in 1937, the house hasn’t gone through a complete renovation yet. Previous owners have added air conditioning and the back solarium. “But the thing is it needs a lot of work,” O'Leary says.
Annual taxes on the 80-by-140-foot property are $26,692. It’s in the Rockville Centre School District.
