Modern updates and vintage charm combine in this circa-1927 ranch on the market for $599,000 in Merrick Gables.

The three-bedroom, two-bath home includes Energy Star appliances throughout and an open-concept family-living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a skylight.

“They took down a wall between the living room and family room,” says listing agent Gina Padro of Keller Williams Realty.

Also new to the 1,612-square-foot home is a kitchen with wood floors, stainless steel appliances, granite surfaces, skylights and a bay window, Padro says. Wood floors throughout are original, as is the living room’s stucco fireplace. The house has new windows.

The fully finished basement has a private entrance, an office, a laundry and utilities, including a tankless gas boiler system.

Eight-foot sliding doors in the dining room open to a fenced backyard with a 15-by-35-foot in-ground saltwater pool. Paver stones and other masonry on the 60-by-100-foot parcel are about 2 years old, Padro says.
