House of the Week: Plan the perfect Super Bowl party

Thorburn-kitchen

Think of the ultimate Super Bowl bash, with an open floor plan ideal for multiple televisions and multiple conversations. There’s also plenty of room upstairs — four large bedrooms to be precise — for tired football fans to crash after all that, um, popcorn is spilled.

But let’s say it’s not Super Sunday. 

It’s just a regular, quiet Sunday morning. You might find yourself on the back deck or at the kitchen counter, sipping coffee or juice while gazing off into the woods.

Nestled in those woods you’ll find a stream, the headwaters of Little Creek, which pours into the ponds of Rider Avenue Park to the south, and ultimately, the Great South Bay.

The bay, as well as Patchogue Village’s beach club and pool, Shorefront Park and the restaurants Lombardi’s on the Bay and South Ocean Grill are all just a short walk away from this completely renovated Dutch colonial home at 52 Thorburn St.

The new, lower asking price is $289,000.

“It’s completely turn-key,” said listing agent Keith Dawson of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “The hardwood floors are all contemporary, with that dark stain. It’s an open floor plan and the bedrooms are all a very nice size.

“It’s on a great block. It’s a dead end; it’s quiet. Yet you have all those village amenities right there.”

Dawson said the first floor would be ideal for entertaining.

One thing you you’ll never have to worry about at 52 Thorburn Street is seeing a neighbor staring back at you as you take another sip of that coffee.

“There are no neighbors back there,” Dawson said — just that little creek.
