Why it’s for sale Faiella, 59, a teacher’s assistant, says she is selling because the home is now too much for her.
Faiella’s 2,842-square-foot home is a classic example of canal-front living in Oceanside. The bulkhead has space for eight boats but could be converted to accommodate a large one. Faiella chats about her home:
“The view is open, wide and fabulous, plus you get the sunset. I spend most of my time in the kitchen and den. The kitchen is huge. It was renovated about 12 years ago with light cabinets, granite countertops and top appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator. Both bathrooms have been completely renovated. . . . There are two bedrooms upstairs and two down. We have a fireplace that can be seen from the living room, dining room, den and kitchen. . . . The master bedroom is very large, with two huge closets. The whole wall is sliding glass doors out to the pool and deck. The first-floor bathroom is the size of a bedroom. It has a 6-foot tub and a separate shower. . . . After Sandy, we had water in the crawl space, but the first floor was not damaged.”
