A nearly century-old three-bedroom stucco home on a tree-lined street in Rockville Centre is on the market for $689,000.

Built in 1926, the two-story, 1½-bathroom house on Dorchester Road has a wood-burning fireplace with a brick surround in the living room and hardwood floors throughout. It has 1,700 square feet of living space.

“It’s a generously sized house,” said Dennis Blachut of Signature Premier Properties, who is representing the seller with Angela Blachut. “The living room is larger; it’s got a good-sized dining room, and an eat-in kitchen.” There's also a window-lined sunroom.

The property has a full, unfinished basement and detached, one-car garage.

“It gets a lot of sunlight,” Blachut said. “It’s very charming." The sellers owned the home for “quite some time,” he said, adding that a buyer will want to make updates.

Zoned for the Rockville Centre School District, the house is near Sunrise Highway and the Southern State Parkway, Hempstead Lake and Rockville Centre Public Library.

The roof was replaced in the last five years and some of the windows are newer, Blachut said.

Property taxes on the 0.14-acre lot are $15,273.

A brick walkway leads to the house with plush greenery extending to the backyard, creating a screen surrounding a brick patio.

“It’s really private; it’s a great place for entertaining,” Blachut said. “It’s not a huge lot but it has a really nice sense of privacy.”
