This charming Colonial-style house on City Island, located at 626 King Avenue and overlooking the Long Island Sound, has just listed for $1.49 million—and it is here to remind you that it is possible to live within the five boroughs and by the beach.
Built in 1920, the 2,323-square-foot, two-story house has six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and glass doors that lead to a fenced yard and a porch. It also features a wood-burning fireplace and a space for an infinity pool.
Aside from the stunning beach views, the house is just a three minute walk from lively City Island Avenue (and all its seafood restaurants). The island itself is a close-knit community where “everyone knows each other,” according to Max Krull, a longtime resident who spoke with Curbed last year. “I feel like I’m on vacation, even though I go to work,” he said.
Recently renovated, the house has hardwood floors throughout, granite countertops, an eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, high ceilings, and central A/C. Taxes for the property will be $10,873.
The house is located at 626 King Avenue and is listed by Louise DelGiudice of Century 21 Marciano.
