House of the Week: Counting the days until your 55th birthday

condo-1

They say you shouldn’t rush your life away.

But with homes available in 55+ communities such as Springhorn at Blue Point, just south of the tracks in the hamlet and a one-minute drive to Montauk Highway, it might be hard not to.

High ceilings. A huge kitchen. Gleaming wood floors. An attached garage. This isn’t your father’s condominium. (But it could be.)

The single-floor unit at 58 Oyster Cove Lane at Springhorn just went up for sale last month. It’s 1,200 square feet with one bedroom and two full baths. There’s also a community pool on-site.

Listing agent Sherry Jenks of Douglas Elliman said the large, first-floor master bedroom suite makes it highly desirable for retirees or near-retirees not looking to move anytime soon.

“It’s a great community,” she said. “There are some people who are still working and some who are retired. The grounds are lovely. It’s all tree-lined and meticulously kept.”

As for the condo itself, Jenks described it as spacious and airy with an open-floor plan and great natural light because of its southern exposure.

“It’s a small development and it’s in walking distance to the library,” she said.

There are also a some shops and a nature preserve that’s being built in walking distance as well.

The asking price is $385,000. Click here for the full listing.
