A historic Victorian-era home, built in 1882, is listed for sale in Sea Cliff.

Its architectural style and light blue-and-white exterior, as well as a quaint wrap-around porch and well-maintained lawn, give the house its charming curb appeal. The home, located at 55 Summit Ave., is right in the heart of the village, across from the Village Green and library and a few blocks from shops, restaurants, parks, and the beach.

With six decently-sized bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half-bathroom, this nearly-3,000-square-foot, single-family house is plenty spacious. There are also cathedral ceilings and an entrance foyer on the main level.

Some other notable features include several pocket doors on the first floor, formal dining and living rooms, a den/family room, and a wood-burning fireplace. The updated chef’s kitchen includes a small dining area, a breakfast nook, and a soapstone island.

The home has year round water views from the second-floor bedrooms, as well as the master suite on the third floor, which includes office space, storage space, and a master bathroom with a claw-foot bathtub and pebble-floor shower.

Additionally, the house boasts a full, finished basement with a laundry room and a large backyard for entertaining, complete with a patio area, a heated, saltwater inground pool, a gas fire pit, and a heated outdoor shower.

The house is located in the North Shore School District.

The asking price is $1,698,000, not including the annual property tax of $25,251.

The real estate agent listed for the property is John Russo, of Richard B. Arnold, who can be reached at 516-671-8800.
