A colonial home built in 1750 is listed for sale at 246 Christian Ave. in Stony Brook.
Sea captain Charles Mills, an early colonial-era settler, once owned this nearly 1-acre property. The six-bedroom home oozes with rustic, old world charm while offering modern updates. A nice, historic touch, for example, is the traditional stained glass window with a ship and “1750” designed on it.
Tall windows and high cathedral ceilings with wooden plank beams give this home natural light and spaciousness throughout. That includes the eat-in kitchen, where plenty of sunlight floods in. The kitchen also has a large pantry cabinet and wood cabinets, drawers, and countertops.
The house’s wide plank floors and four fireplaces are a cozy combination for the upcoming winter. The home also has a den/family room and a powder room — plus, the bedrooms have large closets and built-in shelving for storage in the walls. The partial basement is unfinished and just waiting for a real makeover; the possibilities are endless.
Atop the three-floor home is a new cedar roof. Next to the house is a separate two-car garage, which has legal space in it to make a home studio or office — complete with heat and a half bathroom. There is also a small deck connected to the house in the backyard.
The house is close to the village and beaches, and it falls in the Three Village School District.
The asking price is $899,000, not including the annual property tax of $20,777.
The real estate agent listed for the property is Stephanie Carollo, of Realty Connect USA LI Inc., who can be reached at 631-941-4300.
