PATCHOGUE

288 Cedar Ave., $329,990

The screened-in porch in the back of this split-level catches the breeze from the Great South Bay, which is a block away. French doors off the family room at the back of the house open to the porch, which has a slate floor and vaulted ceilings.

The current owners use the porch for roughly three seasons of the year, says the home’s listing agent, Lina Lopes of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “Every time they have a get-together in one of those three seasons, that’s where everybody is.”

New hardwood floors run from the living room and dining room, both with vaulted ceilings, to the kitchen and bedrooms. The granite kitchen boasts white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a ceramic tile backsplash.
