The Barnetts’ 3,200-square-foot home is in The Woodlands development in Port Jefferson Station. It was built in 2002 and has been owned by the Barnetts since January 2008. Debra talks about the home:
“I actually grew up in the area . . . and saw these homes being built. It was my dream neighborhood. . . . We have a wraparound porch, and the layout is open, with high ceilings. The bedrooms are very large. The master bedroom is large and luxurious, with a huge master bath and walk-in closet. The three other bedrooms are down the hall, with a bathroom for the kids.
"We have both a living room and a den. The living room has high, vaulted ceilings, and the den is connected to the kitchen. There’s a formal dining room. We refinished the floors and [added] crown molding. The kitchen cabinets are custom and high-end. The previous owners were in the business. . . .
"The yard is very large and fenced in, and the patio has pavers. Port Jefferson Station is a very close-knit community.”
