Middle Island, 34 Kate Circle, $415,000
This three-bedroom condo sits on the third hole of the Birchwood at Spring Lake Golf Club, says listing agent Marian McKenna of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. The owners enjoy views of the manicured greens from their backyard deck, McKenna says, where they can seek the shade of the rollout awning. McKenna says the “lush” property has served as both a tranquil retreat and an attractive place to entertain.
The 2004 home offers two full bathrooms and two half-baths and an eat-in kitchen with custom cabinets, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and a Sub-Zero freezer. There’s a formal dining room, a living room with a fireplace and a first-floor master suite with a Jacuzzi and steam shower.
The 2,400-square-foot home offers ceramic and hardwood floors, custom closets and a finished basement with a rec room, office and sliding glass doors to the yard. There’s a patio and two-car garage on the property, and residents have access to two community clubhouses with gyms as well as four tennis courts and two indoor and two outdoor pools.
The taxes are $9,947, and the monthly common charges are $460. Marian McKenna, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 631-363-5425.
Merrick, 2782 Clubhouse Rd., $684,500

Hempstead, 106 Long Dr., $749,000
The 0.47-acre property of this brick Colonial overlooks the Hempstead Golf and Country Club, says listing agent Ralph DeBrosse of Mayfair Realty. The oversized backyard has been decorated and landscaped to make the most of the view, DeBrosse says, with features like a fountain, circular walkways, and a patio with a built-in barbecue.
DeBrosse says the yard has been the site of many family celebrations over the years, with the owners hosting engagement parties, a wedding and an annual Fourth of July bash where guests have a front-row seat to the country club’s fireworks.
The five-bedroom house has 3 1⁄2 baths and an open floor plan featuring an eat-in granite kitchen with a wine refrigerator and a banquet-sized formal dining room. There’s a sunken living room with a fireplace and a den with a wood-burning stove. The 1953 home has been completely updated, DeBrosse says, offering a nursery, office and two master suites — including one with a Jacuzzi tub and frameless stall shower. Amenities include new hardwood floors, crown moldings, surround sound and security systems.
The taxes are $26,204. Ralph DeBrosse, Mayfair Realty, 516-292-6882.
