Nestled at the end of a mid-Island cul-de-sac is 27 Powers Court. Behind the gate lies a leafy, overgrown yard with mature trees and flowering shrubs. On the left is a low-slung Craftsman, brown and green, with a giant metal sun above the front door. Inside, the living room walls are a deep red, and a comfy arrangement of chairs sit by the fireplace.
