House for sale in Shoreham, north shore Suffolk Co, NY

Wood-frame, cedar shake hi-ranach with 1100 sq. ft on the top floor plus a large legal accessary apartmment below, all set on a secluded, wooded .74 acre in a small LI community 1 mile from LI sound beach.

Large rear deck overlooks extensive gardens, venerable oaks and fish pond; front is English ivy and tree-filled. Corner property, cul-de-sac location and fencing all confer privacy. Great opportunity to grow your own vegetable, flowers, enjoy fish etc.

Sadly, I had to dismantle the fish pond, give the fish away, and put soil over the pond site. Sorry.  

Interior: Oak floors, light -filled 16 x 21 living room with cathedral ceiling, skylights /many windows, dining room open to living room, wood and tile kitchen, one huge ( 16 x 24) bedroom with skylight. It was two and can again be divided into two bedrooms by putting up a wall. Also, smaller bedroom, large elegant til-floor bathroom, HW floors throughout.. Floor below brings in great income!

Priced to sell at $280,000, this is THE AFFORDABLE OPTION!

Available June 1, 2013 Tenant downstairs will stay if you allow it.

I would be willing to take back a portion of the mortgage.

This is the way I furnished the living room. Baby grand piano can stay, as I have no room where I'm going. Cable TV, internet access all possible. Picture below is the way I furnished my master bedroom, which I also used as a writer's studio.

25 mnutes from LIRR, Ronkonkoma line, easy and inexpensive access to NYC PENN Station.

7 minutes Brookhaven Natl. Laboratory; 15 minutes Port Jefferson Harbor; 20 minutes Riverhead. 40 minutes South shore beaches. 30 minutes Stony Brook University, which has active film festivals, lectures, and concert series.

Wonderful walking trails in nearby State-protected forests. But you must wear long sleeves / trousers to protect against tics.

Note: The downstairs tenants have a separate entrance at the side of the house that is completely hidden from both principal front and rear entrances. They are intelligent, helpful people -- both social workers, and are a treasure to live near. They are both rarely home, and are very quiet.


Note: this house was recently leased as a short term rental.
