Why it’s for sale: Andrea, 56, a teacher, and Drew, 57, a chiropractor, say they want to downsize now that their two adult children are out of the house.
In this deal, new buyers would be acquiring both a large house (3,642 square feet) and spacious property (0.75 acres).
Andrea says: “This is a Bill Hine home. He was a respected architect in the area who did custom, high-end homes. This was the last house he built. We’re less than a mile from Mount Sinai Harbor.
"The layout is great space for entertaining. It’s very open with natural light throughout. We’ve had 60 people here comfortably. We have a huge great room with a tray ceiling. There’s maple wood flooring in the dining room and great room and ceramic tile in the kitchen and foyer.
"We updated the kitchen with stainless steel appliances. We have a multilevel composite deck that surrounds the 18-by-36-foot inground pool, and there’s an outdoor shower off the deck. It’s ideal for entertaining.
"The master bath has a two-person Jacuzzi tub. We have an enormous walk-in closet that my husband and I share. The basement has an equipped gym along with a game room, an office and a workshop. We’re in a beautifully wooded neighborhood that’s ideal for kids.”
