Why it’s for sale. Brian, 34, a chef, and Jennifer, 32, a stay-at-home mom, and their two sons, ages 2 and 5, have “outgrown the place.”
Brian and Jennifer purchased the two-bedroom, 1½-bath condo in 2004. Since then, they’ve renovated the kitchen and smaller bath and enhanced one of the bedroom’s by adding raised half-paneling to the walls.
The two-level town house is in a “family-oriented, affordable living” Hampton Villas community that’s beautifully landscaped, Jennifer says. There’s a community in-ground pool and a town beach about a 15-minute drive away, she says.
Most of the neighbors are year-round residents, however, the condo is a convenient “summer getaway” for a city dweller because it’s within a short walk from the Long Island Rail Road train station, she says.
Here's what Jennifer says about the home: “We have a great location. It’s south-facing with lots of light coming in during the afternoon and our parking spot is steps away from the front door . . . The master bedroom and stairway have [vaulted] ceilings, making them feel more spacious . . . We added extra storage areas throughout, including under the stairway and in the ceiling of the sunroom."
