In the market for a sophisticated Jetsons-style smart home?
Check out this custom-built, three-story Northport colonial on 591 Old Bridge Drive, at a convenient location giving easy access to the village, beaches, and highways.
Built in 2005, the 5,800-square-foot house majestically sits on a private acre of property and is listed at $999,999. While it doesn’t offer everything in the smarthome spectrum, it has been cleverly outfitted with a suite of key features, and potential buyers will love the layout and open floor plan.
“The current owners just completed a major renovation of the basement giving the home a very large entertainment area with a professional grade bar [with sink and wine fridge], home theatre, full bath and outside entrance,” says real estate professional Melanie Mazzeo of Douglas Elliman Dix Hills.
Being on-the-go millennials, the homeowners wanted a smart security system. They also installed Nest thermostats that control three zones of heat and provide energy savings along with the luxury of coming home to a warm house. There’s central cooling and, of course, surround sound.
Completely updated with beautiful finishes, hardwood flooring, high ceilings, and skylights, the home offers five bedrooms, four full baths and one half bath, a large eat-in kitchen with high-end appliances, two-story den with fireplace, and spacious family room. It also features a lovely garden and patio, as well as a three-car garage that has an electric charger. Other perks: The finished ‘smart’ basement is on its own zone of heat, controlled by the Nest system.
For security, they opted for a combination of multiple outdoor Nest cameras, and movable interior cameras that offer flexibility to monitor specific areas of the house in detail. A Ring doorbell answers the front door, providing instant visual and audio contact with anyone at the door. These systems are integrated with an ADT security system in the house. The ADT smartphone app allows monitoring of the home’s surveillance systems as well as providing security monitoring for the interior and exterior and alerts to the owners, police and fire departments in case of emergency.
“The homeowners, who were both originally from Long Island but had moved out of state, were drawn back by the quality of the local schools for their children, the vibrant community life that the villages of Northport and Huntington offer, as well as the easy access to major airports and thriving economy,” says Mazzeo.
New owners can easily add more features for the ultimate smart-home experience.
