An updated three-bedroom, two-bath Stony Brook Craftsman-style home set on a landscaped half-acre with a one-bedroom cottage has gone to contract. The asking price was $499,000.

Improvements in 2006 to the circa-1930s home include new cedar shingle siding, an asphalt roof, gutters, wooden shutters, custom Marvin and Andersen windows, and gas heat and central air conditioning.

Streetscape plantings on the 76-by-357-foot parcel include northern sea oats ornamental grass, liriope and bishop’s weed vinca, says Francine Saer of Coach Realtors, the listing agent. The driveway is lined with plantings of ninebark, euonymus, smoke bush and callicarpa interwoven with hostas, day lilies and lily of the valley.

Three Japanese maples, two bloodgoods and an array of hydrangeas, anemone, Japanese hakonechloa grass, ferns and catmint surround a stone patio that steps up to a covered front porch; inside, the living room features prefinished oak floors and a wood-burning fireplace with custom mantel detail.

The updated eat-in kitchen is equipped with a six-burner Blue Star range, Viking wall oven and Fisher & Paykel refrigerator and dishwasher. Finishes include built-in Boos butcher block countertops, solid wood cabinets and granite surfaces. The kitchen and a full bath have radiant heat and Waterworks fixtures; the first-floor full bath features a Waterworks claw-foot tub.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, including a master bedroom and two additional bedrooms with built-in bookshelves. The full bath, which was updated in 2007, has radiant heat.

A rear deck steps down to a backyard stone path that winds through plantings. The recently renovated cottage includes a kitchen, full bath, bedroom, living room and separate utility meters.
