Why it’s for sale: Julie, 41, a freelance copywriter, and Brian, 38, an attorney, say they are downsizing but staying in the area.
Julie talks about the many nice touches she’s going to miss in the home. She shares:
“It’s one of those homes that can be deceiving about its size. On the third floor is the fourth bedroom, and it’s like a suite. It’s a really nice space with its own bathroom. . . . It’s been wonderful for us to be able to offer this private area [to guests]. My husband also has work space there.
"When we bought the house, the kitchen had a bar area, which we switched to a breakfast nook. When you first walk in, it feels like the craftsmanship of the home has been honored.
"When people walk in, they notice things that new houses don’t have . . . like moldings, stained-glass windows and a window bench that hides a radiator. These are details you don’t see anymore. Little details make it feel so homey. It’s such a sweet house.
"I grew up in Glen Cove, and it’s an amazing place to raise kids. Our neighbors are wonderful. It’s quiet, and we’ve always felt very safe. We have sidewalks, which for little kids is a nice thing. People need to know there’s a lot of love in this house. It looks like a sweet house, and it’s been a sweet house.”
