The Rainbow House, a charmingly colorful Victorian home, is listed for sale at 15 12th Ave. in Sea Cliff.
While Victorian-era architecture commonly has some color, it is exceptionally rare to find any house with color as bright and boldly liberated as this one. Indeed, this 1887 home’s shingled exterior bears every hue of the rainbow.
Inside, the Rainbow House is perfect for first-time homebuyers and new families. It’s a fresh, clean slate full of renovation and redecorating potential. There’s one bedroom downstairs and two upstairs, plus two bathrooms in the home.
The house is a spacious 1,722 square feet, with several windows to let the sun drench in some natural light. Living spaces include an eat-in kitchen, living room, and den area. There are also spots for laundry and storage, with a five-shelf case baked into one of the walls.
Color trickles into the interior in two areas: a bathroom and the kitchen. One bathroom has a bright, red wall and different colored shelves, plus a black-and-white tiled floor to punctuate this funky space. The kitchen has one, colorful tiled backsplash behind the gas stove and oven, plus light yellow cabinets and blue-ish gray countertops.
This one-family home is centrally located in the heart of the Village of Sea Cliff, near shops, restaurants, the Long Island Railroad, parks, libraries, the beach, and Sea Cliff Elementary School.
The asking price is $515,000, not including the annual property tax of $9,638.
The real estate agent listed for the property is Eileen Heimer, of Daniel Gale Real Estate, who can be reached at 516-674-2000.
