The waterfront house overlooks the Nissequogue River. It was built in 1844, has seven bedrooms, and is located in the Riverhead school district.

The home’s three floors are a mix of elegance and coziness amid its wood floors, high ceilings, and decorative moldings. Each room is oversized and has plenty of space, including a large, formal living room with two fireplaces and the chef’s eat-in kitchen, which has two ovens, two refrigerators, and a center island. 

There are three more fireplaces throughout the house. All bedrooms are on the second and third floors, and there is a “barrister style” office on the first floor, as well as a formal dining room with an old-school, classic, and intricately designed tile ceiling. Plus, the home has an exercise room and powder room, as well as five bathrooms and a half bathroom. The basement is full and unfinished.

This home also has a back, covered porch spanning the entire back of the house with walls of glass that overlook the rolling green lawn and patio area. There is an inground pool in the backyard, as well.

The asking price for the property is $1,499,000, not including the annual property tax of $49,436.
