Set on a flat one-acre parcel, this Huntington ranch has two new heating systems, including one for the driveway. The temperature-controlled heating unit is in the basement. The idea is to turn on the unit before a snowfall so the snow will melt as it hits the pavement. On the market for $550,000, the house also is equipped with an automatic generator. As for interior details, there are six rooms with wood floors. The layout includes an entrance hall, a living room, a dining room, an eat-in kitchen and three bedrooms, including a master suite. There are three bathrooms. Other features include central air-conditioning, a basement, an attached two-car garage, plus a detached two-car garage with electricity and a loft for storage.

The driveway may not be heated at this Laurel Hollow house, but the paved walkway leading from the driveway to the front door is. The walkway — about 20 feet wide and 30 to 40 feet long — didn’t accumulate snow this season, says one of the listing agents. That is just one of the house’s amenities. Set on about three acres, this Southwestern-style ranch listed for $2,495,000 is about 9,500 square feet and boasts a game room, a wine-tasting room, spas, a sports court, an outdoor cabana and an in-ground pool. The 13-room house also features four fireplaces, five bedrooms and 61/2 bathrooms. Listing agent: Ben and Marion Matros, Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes & Estates, East Norwich, 516-647-7488
