This West Islip listing at 275 Willetts Lane offers waterfront property with plenty of room to run.
“West Islip isn’t known for large properties, but Willetts Lane is where you find them,” said listing agent Jamie Winkler of Jamie Winkler Real Estate. “All of the houses along the east side of the street — on the creek — are very deep.”
There’s also plenty of room for extended family. “It’s been rebuilt as a mother/daughter with a dining room in the center to be shared by either the parents or the children,” Winkler said. “You may not think you need a mother/daughter now, but in the future you might. And this house already has an elevator that goes from the finished basement to the second floor.”
The 4,000-square-foot home consists of five bedrooms, six bathrooms, two fireplaces, an office, media room and a porch. Click here for the full listing.
The asking price is $1,495,000 and the taxes are $25,858, which obviously can be split between two families.
But let’s say you want it all to yourself.
“It’s very easily converted into a one-family house,” said Winkler. “You just take the walls down between the two kitchens and make it one big kitchen.”
Winkler knows exactly what she would do if she were to move to 275 Willetts tomorrow.
She’d take a walk.
“I would go straight down to the dock at sunset with some hors d’oeuvres and drinks and just watch,” she said. “The sky is so beautiful in October, so it’s a perfect time.”
