Why it’s for sale Rich, 45, and Christine, 43, who both work in education in the Lindenhurst School District, say they’re planning to move to Lindenhurst to lessen their commutes. The Finders and their three kids — ages 13, 12 and 10 — have lived in their 2,600-square-foot home for six years. Rich talks about the home and property:

“The space in the house is tremendous. We have many large rooms that flow nicely. We have a nice eat-in kitchen, where we spend a lot of time. Year round, we spend a lot of time on the porch with our kids and our big St. Bernard, Roxy. The property is large. There’s a wooded lot behind our backyard that’s part of our property. We have a lot of privacy with high hedges in the front. We hardly see the neighbors. We have a two-car heated garage where the kids play hockey or lacrosse in the winter. . . . We have a nice wood-burning fireplace in the den. There are hardwood floors throughout the house, except in the kitchen and bathrooms. . . . With our school district, kids can choose between Center Moriches, Eastport South Manor or Westhampton Beach for their high school. ”
