Everything about this property is simple and attractive. It's not exciting as is, but some interesting furniture and artwork inside will liven it up. The exterior is a shingled Colonial Revival style with a hipped roof, and there are backyard porches. There is a pool house for the gunite pool and a detached garage on the 0.68 acre plot. Inside, there's 7000sf of space with six bedrooms and six baths, along with five fireplaces. The kitchen is simple and not too huge but also in current taste. This seems like a reasonable buy at $5.75M; a similar but slightly smaller house on a slightly smaller plot over on Captains Neck Lane has been sitting on the market at $5.95M.
