Why it’s for sale. Vincent Cirrito, 70, is retired from his own landscaping business, and his wife, Mary Jean, 68, a retired teacher, raised their five children in the home and now want something smaller, though they plan to stay in the Bayport area.
The Cirritos’ home has six bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a formal dining room and living room and is on 1.7 acres. Regis Post, who, at one time served as governor of Puerto Rico, built the home 107 years ago. It features original stained glass windows in the formal dining room, two fireplaces, a rear staircase and a two-car detached garage. Vincent talks about the home he and his wife have owned for 30 years
“The house is an English Tudor, and we loved it the minute we saw it. It was designed by Isaac H. Green Jr. and built in 1905. It’s like the ‘Great Gatsby’ house, and it has the charm of a summer rental. In 1905, it rented for $750 for the summer season . . . It’s a partying house with an open floor plan, which is unusual for an older house. It has lots of windows and is unique ... and picturesque.
"Bayport is a beautiful town. It has it
