Why it's for sale: Lisa, 44, a photographer, and Frank, 44, who works in sales at a company on Long Island, say they need a home that will accommodate a parent who will be moving in with them.

The Anselmos have owned their home since 2005. Their two boys, ages 7 and 9, attend Glenwood Landing Elementary School, which was recently designated as exemplary and high-performing and named a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. Lisa talks about the home:

"I love the location -- we're on a dead-end street, so it's very private and quiet. It's a great spot for the kids to play and have space. We have a beautiful flat, large backyard. ... We put in new hardwood floors in the living room and dining room to match the kitchen. ...

"The kitchen and the bathroom are surprisingly large. I definitely will miss my big kitchen and that it leads right out to the back deck. It's absolutely great for entertaining. ... It's a quaint, charming, warm home.

"We have a nice shed on the side of our property that we had built to match the house. The driveway can fit four cars. ... Hands down, we have the best neighbors. This is a very friendly block; there's always someone outside playing or chatting."
