78 Mount Misery Rd.
Surrounded by 900 acres of woodlands with hiking and bridle trails, this sprawling, 4,100-square-foot ranch is set on 2 acres. "It's a nice, quiet area. You almost feel like you are upstate," says the listing agent. Fully landscaped, the treed property boasts a lake-style gunite in-ground pool surrounded by brick pavers and a cabana, while the rear patio with a built-in barbecue is prime for grilling. The yard is illuminated, so the fun can continue after dark. Since the house has so many windows, the outdoors come right inside, says the agent, noting this is especially true from the climate-controlled solarium. Other interior features include three fireplaces, some marble floors and recessed lighting. There are four bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms, including the master suite with a Jacuzzi tub. Amenities include central air-conditioning, a partially finished basement and an automatic propane whole-house generator. Glenn Helder, Tidemill Enterprises, 516-244-0566

Call this 2.94-acre property a sanctuary of sorts. It's set up on a hill overlooking a Nature Conservancy pond. Flora and fauna can be seen from just about every angle of the Contemporary-style home. The house has many levels, with multilevel decking. Features include an indoor pool, some wood floors, three wood-burning fireplaces and walls of glass and sliding-glass doors. The first floor boasts a living room with a raised ceiling with four clerestory windows and walls of glass doors to the deck. The formal dining room has two walls of sliding doors to decks that offer pond and courtyard views. Of three bedrooms, the master suite -- complete with two closets and a fireplace -- has sliders that open to a deck, an angled ceiling and three clerestory windows. The second floor has an en-suite bedroom with walls of sliding doors to decks on three sides. There are 4 1/2 bathrooms. The pool area also has walls of sliding doors.
