This three-bedroom, two-bath Spanish-style stucco home in the historic Gables section of Merrick is ready for a new owner to make their mark. It is listed for $444,990.

The circa-1927 home retains its historic charm after exterior renovations, which include a new flat roof, new stucco, siding and pavers, a new hot-water heater, new Andersen windows and a five-zone, in-ground sprinkler. The electrical system has been upgraded to 200 amps and can accommodate central air conditioning, says listing agent Pamela Heymach of Lynda Baker Real Estate.

Wood floors throughout the home have mahogany inserts, and cedar closets are included in the master bedroom suite.

An asymmetrical brick fireplace is found in the living room, where sliding glass doors open to a raised paver patio on the 60-by-100 -foot parcel, which includes a long driveway and a 1.5-car detached garage.

A partially finished, carpeted lower level includes a full bathroom and a laundry room.
