WHY IT'S FOR SALE. Liz, 48, owns a software company, and her husband, Rich, 48, is an air traffic controller. They and their 8-year-old daughter, Gabriella, are moving to Florida to be closer to older family members.
The Pecoraros have owned their 2005 four-bedroom, three-bath Victorian-style home for seven years. The house, with 3,200 square feet of living space on a .75-acre lot, has central air conditioning, a custom mahogany wood-burning fireplace, attached two-car garage and in-ground sprinkler system.
When asked what she loves most about the house, Liz replies: "You're going to make me cry, I love the whole thing. I love the wraparound porch where we can watch the kids play in the cul-de-sac. We love sitting in the very private backyard where there's a nature preserve (-like) area behind us.
"I work from .?.?. a home office. So when I'm not working, I enjoy our beautiful gourmet kitchen. It has stainless steel appliances, granite counters .?.?. and a big open area leading to the family room. The home is perfect for entertaining and having parties. When we built it, most of the upgrades were in the kitchen. We finished the basement .?.?.
"There's a huge living space there and .?.?. a little secret area we call Pixie Hollow for Gabriella's play area. It's just very girlie, and it's where her dollhouse is. It's a kids' getaway. We are in a tight-knit community. It's small-town living on the edge of the Hamptons. We're minutes from the beach
