This Setauket Greek Revival home on 3.42 gated acres dates back to the early 20th century and was built on land that was part of a 200-acre pig farm, says Louis Antoniou, the owner since 1999. It is listed for $1.85 million.

Once beyond the gates, a visitor accesses the home through a long, hedge-trimmed driveway, says listing agent Miriam Ainbinder, of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

The six-bedroom, 6.5-bath home has a 27-foot-long, window-lined formal dining room has a fireplace.

“I love the architecture the most,” Antoniou says, highlighting the trim work in particular. “The quality of the materials used is not something you can duplicate today so easily unless you spend fortunes.”

The kitchen includes original cabinets, a vintage tin sink and multiple pantries. French doors in the adjacent breakfast room open to a stone patio.

The railing of an ornate curved stairway terminates at a set of French doors that lead to a balcony.

A two-bedroom, two-bath cottage on the property has a new kitchen, a living room with a fireplace, a dining room, redone bathrooms and a two-car garage. There is also an inground pool and a pool house with a half-bath on the grounds, which are irrigated by a 26-zone sprinkler system.
