A ranch where old-meets-new across the street from a creek in Patchogue is on the market for $475,000 with taxes under $10,000.
Built in 1940, the 1,600 square-foot home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms retains some of its original characteristics, including carefully restored original kitchen cabinets.
The cabinets in the large eat-in kitchen "are the original wood, and still have the integrity of that wood look, with some added glass cabinets, with quartz counters and a center island," says listing agent Ted Gounelas of Coldwell Banker M&D Good Life. "It’s fresh and up to today’s standards, but a timeless look as well."
The kitchen has modern white appliances, two wall ovens and a stove located in the island. The two bathrooms are also updated.
The front door is about 100 years old, as well, adding to that timeless charm, Gounelas says.
Located on Sheldon Avenue, the home has winter views of Swan River Creek, which is right across the road. The house is on a third-acre south of Swezey Street. The property has a two-car detached garage, an unfinished basement with Bilco doors, and central air.
The living room has a fireplace and French doors leading into a formal dining room. A deck and pergola are off the back door.
"It’s sort of shabby chic," Gounelas says. "It is almost like a really comfortable beach house."
The house is in the Patchogue-Medford School District. Taxes are $9,231.
