Why it’s for sale: Nicole, 37, an account executive for Myriad Genetics, and Chris, 38, a financial analyst, say they want to move to a larger home but stay in the area.

The Perrakises bought their house in 2007 and have done several upgrades. Their two boys, ages 5 and 8, attend the West Islip Public Schools. Nicole says:

“The great room consists of the kitchen, living room and dining room, which makes for a good flow and an open feel. We have a huge deck off the kitchen, which connects the house to the detached 1½-car garage.

"But even then there’s still a large backyard that’s completely fenced in with PVC fencing. And there’s a nice swing set that will be staying.

"We have a big weeping willow tree in the back along with a cherry tree that’s gorgeous in the spring.

"We’ve made some nice improvements. The water heater and furnace are new, and we renovated the bathroom. We also put in a new Andersen sliding glass door out to the deck. . .

"It’s really a perfect house for a single parent, an older couple or a new couple just starting out. I’m going to miss this house. We have 10 years’ worth of memories raising our two sons here.”
