House of the Week: Oh, what a porch in East Patchogue



Hurry up and grab a couple rocking chairs and relax.

That’s an ideal afternoon on this large, quiet property in the desirous neighborhood of Bellport Beach Estates, south of South Country Road in East Patchogue.

It’s not just the porch that makes this a great house, said listing agent Prudence Brower of Swan Realty.

“Well, it’s the property,” she said. “It’s gorgeous and its its on .72 acres.”

Despite it’s picket fence, covered porch and exposed beams in the living room, Brower described the modified cape on Melrose Parkway as more traditional than true country.

She also noted there’s a fireplace surrounded by tile in the living room, and a vaulted ceiling where those beams are.

“There’s the big living room, a big formal dining room, and a galley kitchen,” she said. “It’s in a secluded area in Bellport Beach Estates, so you just join the association and you have access to the beach and gazebo.”

The asking price is $369,900. See the full listing, including more photos, by clicking here.
