This Islip home, listed for $410,000, comes with its own greenhouse. It is located in the backyard and accessible from the back door of the garage.

The greenhouse was installed by former owners who were horticulturists. It is heated and has a sprinkler system.

Current owner Larry Chan says he was drawn to the house because it is situated on a lake.

“Ten feet of the lake is part of the property,” says Chan. Geese, swans, turtles and frogs come on the property. “You can fish in the lake, too -- there’s carp, and all sorts of fish,” he says.

The property is listed with David Sanders of Eric G Ramsay Jr. Associates.
