This circa-1830 home in Stony Brook on the market for $799,000 was the first in the village to be equipped with running water, its listing agent says.

The six-bedroom, 3 1⁄2-bath home on a half-acre has come a long way in the creature-comforts department since then.

The bathrooms, windows, roof, heating and electrical systems have all been upgraded, and wide-plank white pine floors on the first floor have been redone, says Linda Hickey of Hickey & Smith Realtors.

The first floor contains a living room, dining room, two parlors, a library and a half-bathroom. The new kitchen features an Italian ceramic floor, Gaggenau kitchen island and oven, custom cherry cabinets, granite surfaces, Franke sinks with nickel hardware, a Bosch stainless steel dishwasher and Sub-Zero refrigerator.

Six bedrooms and three bathrooms can be found upstairs; a master bedroom includes a fireplace with a marble hearth. There is also a full attic with insulation, a fan and extra beams for support.

Outdoors, there is a hand-laid bluestone wall and bluestone patio, bluestone walkways, a small koi pond and rebuilt porches.

A renovated basement with 200 amp service and updated utilities includes high ceilings, sealed stone walls and an outside entry. Vintage locust beams have been preserved as well, Hickey adds.
