Why it’s for sale Melissa, 34, a stay-at-home mother to their daughter and son, and Lorenzo, 38, a mason with his own business, say they’re relocating to North Carolina.
The next owners of the Cangero’s home will benefit from Lorenzo’s skill in the masonry business, Melissa says:
“Our heart and soul are in this house. My husband did the brick driveway, the stone and brick on the house and the tiling in all four bathrooms. We have a true level backyard and Lorenzo put in the patio, the fire pit and a pond. He also did stacked stone work on the breakfast bar and around our pellet stove. . . . The house was originally a two-family and we lived downstairs and rented the upstairs. When I got pregnant with my son, we needed the whole house and added the master bedroom with a walk-in closet. On the first floor, we took down several walls and created an open concept design. My husband also finished the basement. He put in a cultured stone bar with a sink and a granite top. . . . We had solar panels installed two years ago. It’s unbelievable. We’re in the negative over the summer, and have a credit on our PSEG bill. We have gas heat, but the pellet stove has enabled us to keep the heat off for two winters. ”
