Why it’s for sale Patricia, 35, is an insurance agent and her husband, Brian, 45, is a financial forecaster. They say they’re moving to be closer to family.

Patricia says: “I’m going to miss my beautiful kitchen. We did a total renovated in 2016, and it’s perfect for parties and family gatherings. Plus, with the six-burner stove, sauce can cook all day long. . . . The den, which has a wood-burning fireplace, is where we spend most of our time. Right off the den is a loft. Half of it is devoted to the kids and their toys, and the other half is an office area. . . . We installed hardwood floors throughout the house; in some cases we were replacing ceramic tile. There’s beautiful wainscoting in the living room, dining room and kitchen. In the renovation, we opened walls and made wide casement openings between the living room, dining room and kitchen to give a real open feeling. The backyard and pool are a lot of fun. Big enough for nice parties and barbecues. . . . The neighborhood is very quiet. But just two minutes away is Huntington village, which is like a mini New York City. Lots of restaurants, bars and [a] park. This is such a great area to raise kids.”
