A ROYAL AFFAIR Ever wanted to live in your own castle? A rather palatial Upper Brookville home is on the market for $9,995,000. The eight-bedroom, 10-bath house has wall murals in the great room depicting scenes of nature, animals and elaborate French-style gardens “almost out of Versailles,” says John Messina, the agent from Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes & Estates representing the house. Coffered ceilings, intricate moldings, marble floors and cherry paneling can be found throughout the house. The house comes with six fireplaces, a sweeping staircase in the two-story foyer and a wine cellar with a tasting room in the lower level. For entertainment, there’s a media room, an in-ground heated pool, tennis court, arcade room and dance floor in the basement. The property also has an entirely separate two-story guesthouse with two bedrooms, two baths and its own kitchen, dining room and living room with a tray ceiling. To top it all off, iron gates serve as the entrance to the five-acre property and open to a cobbled driveway that leads directly to the front door.  -- Elizabeth Gyori

ROOM WITH A VIEW A Lloyd Harbor home on the market for $1.875 million is all about the conservatory. “It’s phenomenal in the winter,” says homeowner Joyce Diamond. “A couple of years ago when we had all that snow, we just sat in here with a bottle of wine and watched it fall.” The conservatory, which has heating as well as air-conditioning, is also used for dining. This four-bedroom, two-bath, two-half-bath Colonial was built in the 1950s and completely renovated over the past 16 years. It is on two secluded acres, which has strategically placed lighting in trees surrounding the home. The home comes with beach and mooring rights, two fireplaces, a formal dining room, full finished basement and a two-car garage. It is listed with Bonnie Williamson of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.  -- Courtney Gabriel
