Set high on three-quarters of an acre overlooking Long Island Sound, this eight-room Contemporary has a turret in the back of the house offering expansive water views from both floors, says one of the listing agents. On the main level of the turret is the kitchen, where the bow-shaped wall with multiple windows is complemented by built-in cabinets with quartz countertops as well as the sink. Stainless steel appliances and a center island are also part of the kitchen's design. The master bedroom is in the second floor of the turret. From here, you can see for miles, the agent adds. Other interior features include wood floors, vaulted ceilings, recessed lighting and a fireplace. There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Outside, there's a Trex deck. Amenities include a generator that can operate 95 percent of the house. Taxes are $11,713. Pamela Hogrefe and Janet Bidwell, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 631-834-2341 and 631-255-4088, respectively

Overlooking Great South Bay, the turret in this Dutch Colonial is occupied by a Clive Christian-designed eat-in kitchen and a second-floor office. In the kitchen, the owners maximized the water view by placing a pedestal table in front of the turret's windows. About 800 square feet, this room also features a six-burner Wolf Stove with a deep fryer, two Wolf ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and Sub-Zero wine cooler. Upstairs in the turret, the office with a view is graced by a fireplace -- one of four in the house. Adorned with handcrafted moldings and raised paneling, the layout also includes a foyer with an oak staircase, a library, a great room overlooking the bay, as well as four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two half-baths, including the master suite's. The third floor of the turret is used as a gym. Outside, there is an in-ground gunite pool, a teak deck and Japanese slate patio. A pier and a floating dock -- about 90-feet -- has a boat lift and two stations for Jet Skis. Taxes are $44,133. Joan Harley, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 516-799-7857

When this house -- originally a high-ranch -- was remodeled and expanded in 2005, two turrets were incorporated into the design of the front exterior. One is where the staircase spirals to the second floor; the other serves as a bedroom. A single bed flanked by a built-in shelves is set into the curvature, while the ceiling above is painted sky blue with clouds. Other features of the home -- now a 5,000-square-foot Postmodern -- include an open layout with wood floors, cathedral ceilings, recessed lighting, mill work and a fireplace. It has five bedrooms, three bathrooms and two half-baths. There are two entrances to the second-floor deck through sliding glass doors. Just shy of a half-acre, the landscape includes a patio with pavers and a pergola. Taxes are $22,391.
