In the spirit of the holiday this Sunday, we present three mother-daughter houses on the Long Island market:
When the owners modified this Massapequa split-level (above) to create a mother-daughter house, they converted the garage into living space and added a 25-foot extension. Accessible through a private door in the main house, the apartment has a living room, an eat-in kitchen, a dining room, a master bedroom, a bathroom and a laundry room. It also has an outside entrance to a deck.

The bedrooms occupy the upper floors of the main part of the house, which is listed for $539,000: Two bedrooms and one bathroom are on one level, while the master bedroom and a bathroom are a few steps up. The buyer will have to apply to the town for a permit. Listing agent: Elyse Mayer, Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, Syosset, 516-359-0542

Mother has a place to call her own in this updated nine-room Island Park Contemporary, which was expanded for the occasion. The living space is bright with an open layout. And even though there aren’t any walls separating the living room, dining room and new kitchen, the apartment doesn’t feel like a studio, says the listing agent.

The apartment also has access to the yard, where there is an above-ground pool and a Trex deck. On the market for $459,000, the house icludes a living room, a small den, a computer area, a kitchen and a dining area with a vaulted ceiling and sliding-glass doors to the deck. The second floor has three bedrooms, including a master suite. A full bathroom, with a Jacuzzi and a bidet, has a dual entrance — it’s accessible from the master suite and from the hallway. Each residence has a door to a shared laundry room. The buyer will have to apply to the town for a permit. Listing agent: Karen Varrone, Century 21 Scully Realty, Island Park, 516-889-7110

Set in a cul-de-sac on a half-acre parcel, this 5,200-square-foot Bohemia side-by-side mother-daughter, listed for $1,450,000, was built in 2006. Each residence has a separate front entrance. Mom’s entrance is where the covered front porch is. Her space includes a living room, a dining room, a den, a kitchen, two bedrooms and one bathroom.
