House proud

The entire home was renovated from top to bottom over the past five years, including new shingle siding, roof and windows. The interior has been updated with new appliances and fixtures, and the bathrooms have been remodeled with easy-access shower pans.

“Great care was taken to create a harmonious environment that respected the 1950s original construction while updating the home for 21st century living,” says Nicholas Planamento, the Town and Country agent representing the listing. 

The home is ringed with tall leafy canopy trees that give privacy and shade, yet there’s ample open sky and light in the yard. “It’s a large, level and verdant lawn with a small woodland and a sunny pool location,” the agent says. 

What’s the plan?

The entry opens into a large open-plan living and dining room of a combined 366 square feet. There are two bedrooms on this level and a full bathroom. A 118-square foot sunroom is accessed through the living room. The 511-square-foot second story is devoted to a primary suite that includes a bonus room that overlooks the pool terrace and can be used as a den/family room or office. The unfinished basement has storage, utilities and a laundry room.


What’s cooking?

The stainless-steel appliance suite in the nearly 190-square-foot kitchen includes a LG Dishwasher, GE Profile stove and refrigerator.  The center island includes a Samsung drawer microwave and comfortably seats two. Quartz counters top the cabinetry and the island, which is painted a pretty peacock blue to offset the Shaker white cabinetry. 

What else?

The Shaker cabinetry theme is echoed in the two bathrooms. Planamento says, with proper permitting, there’s potential to convert the one-car garage building into a “magnificent pool house,” and the ample yard offers “plenty of room for expansion whether you need additional living space or an outdoor kitchen.” 

Amenities and more

  • Wood burning red brick fireplace in the living room
  • 16 x 32 heated salt water swimming pool 
  • Radiant floor heating in the bathrooms

One cool thing (or two) 

Marratooka, a name of Native American origins, is also a nearby point (.4 miles from the home on Park Avenue) and lake, and is the name from which Mattituck likely derives its name, notes William Wallace Tooker in a 1911 publication called The Indian Place-names on Long Island and Islands Adjacent: With Their Probably Significations.

It was also the site of a farm that produced “deservedly famous” Marratooka butter, according to A History of Mattituck, Long Island, N.Y., written by the Rev. Charles Edmiston Craven (1860-1944) in 1906.

Agent’s callout 

“This is an upscale beachy neighborhood—after all this is Park Avenue!” says Planamento. He noted the homes across the street are on the bay and are on substantial lots, making this particular home’s siting “truly special because of the privacy and quiet of the location.”

Location, location, location

Park Avenue ends at Marratooka Point, which is a finger of land poking into the Peconic Bay that offers expansive views. It’s 3.4 miles to New Suffolk Beach, 2.5 miles to Veterans Beach and 1.7 miles to Love Lane shopping. The home enjoys close proximity to the North Fork wine route. 



The home at 1835 Park Ave. lists for $1,250,000 and the details can be seen here.
