This 1848 five-bedroom, 31/2-bathroom farmhouse on Cooper Lane in Bay Shore, listed for $679,000, comes with a bit of history. The property was the original Lawrence family caretaker's house, says listing agent Meg Smith of Meg Smith and Associates (631-647-7013). The family owned farmland in the 1800s. The home features original wide-plank hardwood floors and a detached garage that was formerly used as a stable. The home has other yesteryear features such as fireplaces, molding and ceilings. "There is a porch overlooking a stream on the property, too," Smith says. There is also an in-ground gunite pool with a cabana and sauna.

It is one of several Bay Shore homes holding open houses this weekend:
