Randy Altschuler, who fell short in two attempts to gain a Congressional seat in New York's first district, has put his St. James home on the market, though it remains unclear if he is looking to move out of the congressional district.
According to Newsday, the home went on the market about two weeks ago, asking about $50,000 less than he paid for it, which was $1.1 million according to Zillow.com. The home has 6 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, a "gourmet kitchen," pool and more on two-plus acres of property.
Altschuler lost by Bishop, D-Southampton, by less than 600 votes in the 2010 election, though last fall was .
Altschuler, who moved to the area about five years ago, had said in the past he moved to Long Island so his wife could establish a pediatrician practice there, and he found it a good place to raise a family. The couple have two children.
"I wanted to bring my son up in a beautiful community," Altschuler told North Fork Patch in 2010, before his daughter was born. "We're here because we choose to be here and we love to live on Long Island."
