House of the Week: Get smart in Bellport Village

HOW-Howells1

This is a smart house to buy.

No, we’re not offering investment advise.

This Bellport Village listing is considered a “smart house,” meaning its owners can control the heat, AC and electric using an app on their smartphones (everything’s smart!) from wherever they might be.

That’s nice for weekenders looking to pull up to a well-cooled, well-lit house after a long Friday night drive.

But the listing at 15 North Howells Point Road is also suited for year-round living. It’s got 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a spacious backyard. It’s also just a short walk from the village shops and restaurants.

“The backyard is totally private,” explained listing agent Christine Schaeffer with Eileen Green Realty. “And it has a detached garage in the back that can easily be converted into a pool house.”

You might also want the pool. If so, the property’s flat and rectangular lawn is perfect for one.

Scheffer’s favorite room in the house is what she calls the “blue room,” which has enough space to accommodate two growing kids with a pretty view to outdoors.

Most all of the house’s features have been updated within the last few years, Schaeffer added.

The asking price is $499,000. Click here for the full listing.
