This condo in the 22-unit Waters Edge development in Shirley comes with a geothermal heating and cooling pump. “It cuts the heating and cooling bills in half,” says Charles Southard of Gold Key Realty of NY (631-965-1503), who is listing the property for his father, an architect.

With an asking price of $549,900 and monthly common charges of $475, the three-bedroom, 21/2-bath home is at the foot of the bridge leading to Smith Point County Park. There are water views from two balconies — one off the living room on the first floor and another off the master bedroom on the second floor.

“There are beautiful sunrises,” Southard says, adding that living there is like “being on vacation.” There is a full finished basement as well as a third-floor loft, and an in-ground pool and boccie court in the development.
