A House That’s Built to Party for $599K

A pool, a tiki bar, and a basement with a full bar and room for a pool table? This Livingston Manor home was meant to party.

This 4,000-square-foot, expanded Cape Cod was built in 2011. It’s chock full of amenities that are sure to make it a destination for grown-up gatherings or simply the coolest house for your kids and their friends to enjoy.


The foyer is—um—different, with a column-and-tile delineator leading into an open living room/kitchen/dining room. Nice hardwood flooring runs throughout the main level.

The kitchen has nearly everything you’d need, from lots of oak cabinets to a roomy island, plus a double sink and stainless-steel appliances.

The primary bedroom has its own sliders onto the back deck, which runs the length of the house and overlooks an above-ground pool.

It has an ensuite with a soaking tub, separate shower, double sinks, and oak cabinets.

Two other bedrooms (one with its own set of sliders to the deck) and a second full bath finish off the main level of the house. So far, the house looks simple, sturdy, perfect for a night of reading or the occasional church study group, right? Read on, reader…

The basement is where this house rips off its necktie and chugs a cold one (figuratively speaking, of course). It starts with this bar-slash-fishtank setup (do I hear Bob Marley playing in the background? Or would it be Jimmy Buffett?). The full basement also has room for lounging and a pool table.

The party continues outside, where a full-on tiki bar shares the back deck with a more sedate dining set.



The back deck overlooks a gravel patio and a second deck that hugs the above-ground pool. CANNONBALLLLL!!! There are five-and-a-half acres on which to play, and deeded lake rights to the nearby Sand Pond Lake.

If your guests have a little too much fun and need to—ahem—take a nap (aka sleep it off), there’s a 900-square-foot studio space that takes up the entire top floor of the house. It includes a kitchenette for fixing eggs and Bloody Marys in the morning, as well as a bedroom space and bath.

It has a private entrance, also…you know, to avoid awkward Walks of Shame.

The listing notes that the home is being sold “As Is,” although it’s difficult to see what would need fixing. Too much partying, perhaps?
