Why it’s for sale: John, 72, a hairstylist, and his wife, Beatrice, 71, a retired aesthetician, say the house has become too much and they will probably find something smaller in Florida.

The  home was built in 1968. They bought it a year later and raised three children there. John Lonigro says:

“The location is amazing. I can walk one block to Asharoken Beach, where I can kayak or swim. . . . I like the layout of the home. I turned the garage into an enormous den with a wet bar and fireplace. The fireplace opening is 14 feet wide and 4 feet high. It’s gas-operated. . . . We have four huge windows in the den. . . . We updated the kitchen about 10 years ago and bumped out the front about 6 feet. . . . Behind the kitchen is a big Florida room with eight 5-foot-tall casement windows. . . . There’s a lounge area in one end of the dining room. . . . Three bedrooms are on the first floor and two are on the second. . . . The backyard has three patios, one has a natural gas barbecue. . . . The pool is 20 by 40 feet and free-form. . . . There’s a stone wall around the patio near the pool. There’s a 20-by-35-foot barn for storage with an upstairs. . . . It’s only one block either way to water. . . . It’s a 15-minute walk to the village.”
