Quintessential North Fork – $549,000
The Goods – Quintessential North Fork home sits on professionally landscaped acre. Privacy is key. This property has a mini-compound feel with two-story accessory building that opens to a private pool area. Unlike anything on the market, this home is everything you want for the true North Fork experience. MLS# 2911221.
Why it’s a good deal – Listing agent Erin Kaelin of North Fork Real Estate Inc. says, “There simply is no other listing right now on the North Fork that has so many amenities for the price. A fully renovated, antique home with two-story accessory building and in-ground pool are rare enough by themselves, but add the full acre lot and professional landscaping and you have a private mini-compound feeling that isn’t matched by anything else on the market today. At $549,000 it’s priced to sell.”
