Why it’s for sale Maria, 54, an assistant controller for a nonprofit, and Mark, 54, a certified public accountant, are planning to move to Arizona.
The Manzis have lived in their two-bedroom, 3-1/2-bath condominium in Maidstone Landing since the complex north of Aquebogue overlooking Long Island Sound was built 11 years ago. There are 41 buildings with 82 units, and residents are a combination of full-timers, weekenders and seasonal occupants. Amenities include a clubhouse, a swimming pool and tennis courts. There is no age restriction for ownership. Maria talks about the tri-level condo:
"Living [here] .?.?. is like coming home every day to a vacation resort .?.?. We completely redesigned the builder’s standard layout .?.?. [and created] an open kitchen that views the water .?.?. [The master bedroom suite has] a 5-by-5-foot-square spa shower with double rainfall showerheads and double jets on the walls .?.?. This was all done two years ago. We created built-ins [throughout] the condo so we didn’t have to put furniture in front of windows and could preserve the view out every window .?.?. It’s officially a two-bedroom, but the upstairs loft doubles as a guest room .?.?. and there’s space for a king-size bed in the lower walkout level .?.?. The house is great for entertaining. We’ve had 21 people at Thanksgiving and have (accommodated overnight) eight adults and two children for long holiday weekends. You can’t beat the walk-to beach. It’s a pebble path with no steps. We drag our little wagon down and everyone has their goodies for the day."
