Laurel Hollow, 1681 Rte. 25A, $975,000
Set on 2.27 acres, this two-tiered property offers enough space for people as well as for horses.

The scene can be enjoyed from the upper tier, where there is a patio and in-ground pool.
As for the house -- a Tudor-inspired Colonial with wraparound decks -- it is set on a hill. Interior features include an open floor plan, granite floors and a fireplace. The great room features walls of glass, sliding doors, a wet bar and a vaulted ceiling, the agent adds. Recently renovated, the kitchen has custom cabinets and granite countertops.

There are a total of five bedrooms, a half-bath and three bathrooms, including the master suite. Taxes, including an additional village tax, are $22,159. Susan Andreiev, Coach Realtors, 516-922-8500.
