Looking for a waterfront property that you can live in year round and have your boat nearby? Then this luxury waterfront townhome in the Bridgeview Development at Babylon Cove may be right for you.
Located on Salt Meadow Road off of Fire Island Avenue in Babylon, the two-story townhouse offers views of the Great South Bay and Robert Moses Bridge. The 2,200-square-foot unit with a semi-open floor plan boasts three bedrooms, two full baths and one-half bath, two fireplaces, two skylights, hardwood floors, formal dining room a deck and a master bedroom with Jacuzzi. The development is also pet-friendly.
Originally listed at $649,000 the price was recently reduced to $629,000.
“The builder left no stone unturned,” said Lisa Posillico-Magro, a realtor with Coach Realtors who not only represents the property but is also a resident. “Every unit has central air-conditioning, central vac, and a security system.”
One of the perks, adds Posillico-Magro, is that each home comes with a boat slip for a boat up to 30 feet.
“The best feature if you are a boater is the accessibility to the barrier beaches — Gilgo Beach and Cedar Beach — where you can dock your boat and go for dinner,” she said. “There is also Oak Island where you can anchor your boat. The proximity is amazing. You can be on Fire Island in 25 minutes.”
Built in 2004, the property is so structurally sound, explains Posillico-Magro, that it did not undergo any damage during Superstorm Sandy, who experienced the storm firsthand.
“We were not affected and had no water,” she said. “There is an elevation of eight feet, and we are in an X flood zone.”
The townhouse is walking distance from the downtown shopping, restaurants, the post office, train station and the private community pool and tennis courts. Some of the nearby parks include Argyle Park, a popular place in the community. There is also a lake for fishing.
The taxes that are $16,000 annually are affordable for what you get, explains Posillico-Magro. An additional fee of $450 per month covers any landscaping, dock maintenance, snow removal and any home improvement related work.
