Why it’s for sale: Vinny, 50, who is semiretired from the construction industry, and Darlene, 34, a sales manager for Marriott Corp., say they’re relocating to Florida to be closer to family.
The Senisis built their 2,500-square-foot house in 2004. Vinny says that a full-price offer includes their 26-foot Grady White boat:
“We have seamless granite counters, custom cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms, and all three bathrooms are tiled, floor to ceiling, with either porcelain or tumbled marble tile. The master bath shower has body jets, 12-inch rain showerheads and a top-of-the-line Jacuzzi. I’m a former chef, so we have great high-end kitchen appliances like a gas Garland stove and a Viking hood. . . .
"We’re 11½ feet above flood grade, so our flood insurance is only $450 a year. And the homeowner’s insurance is cheaper because we have a sprinkler system throughout the house . . . The bulkhead is only 13 years old and made of corrugated plastic that will last 100 years. . . .
"This home is perfect for entertaining. We had a wedding here with about 120 people. And our great neighbors opened up their backyards so we could have the bar in one and the dance floor in another. It was incredible. Another best thing about the house is our neighbors. We’ve been trying to find a setup like this in Florida, and it’s not easy.”
