Reminiscent of its era, this three-story 1920 Colonial with a covered front and side porch boasts original pine floors, as well as moldings, white exposed beams and some white paneled walls.

Everything else is from this decade, says one of the listing agents. Featuring an open-floor concept, the renovated kitchen with gas cooking and stainless-steel appliances is open to the living and dining areas. There are three bedrooms and 1½ bathrooms. Updates include a new boiler, new roof, siding and Andersen windows.

Amenities include a walkout grade-level basement, in-ground sprinklers, detached garage and a rear deck and patio. The house is hooked up to the sewer system, which is unusual for this area, the agent adds. Kimberly Bullis Byrd and Paul Dougherty, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, 631-673-6800.

This brick Colonial, built in 1932, has a screened, enclosed porch. An archway, arched windows, wood paneling and a ceiling fan lend character to the porch, as does the skeleton key that unlocks the door to gain access from the living room.

Interior features include oak floors, crown moldings, more archways, a brick fireplace and original doors on the second floor. There are plenty of updates, too, including the kitchen and full bath. (There are 1½ baths in total.) All three bedrooms have California Closet Co. closets.

The newel post caps on the staircase pop off, making it easier to move furniture, says the listing agent. A finished basement and walk-up attic provide extra space. The property -- 55 by 100 feet -- has a new fence and pavers, as well as a detached, two-car garage. Tony Soong, Redfin, 917-749-7531.
