In this three-bedroom, two-bath Craftsman-style home, the "stained glass" windows are actually pictures painted onto glass and then installed in windows. The images were originally painted on glass in France during the early 1900s, installed in a church in Pennsylvania and ended up in a stained glass store on Main Street in Smithtown. The current homeowners purchased the glass and had pieces installed in three windows and the front door. The 1909 home with stone accents is on a third of an acre and offers wood floors, custom molding and original bronze period chandeliers (included in the sale). More modern amenities include central air-conditioning, a hot tub, updated heating, plumbing and electrical and a new 1.5-car detached garage. The home is across from the St. James General Store. Taxes are $10,897. Bonnie Glenn, Coach Real Estate Associates, 631-360-1900
