Situated on a private road, this three-bedroom cape is close to both the beach and the village, says agent Mary Terry, of Brown Harris Stevens Westhampton. A charming split-rail fence, pergola and portico welcome you to the front door of the 1957 home, which Terry says underwent an extensive renovation in 2004.

The 1,500-square-foot home offers two remodeled baths, an updated eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room and new hardwood and tile floors. Terry says wood-paneled walls can be found in many rooms of the home, including the living room, which features exposed beams in the ceiling and built-in bookcases on both sides of the wood-burning fireplace.

There’s a recreation room in the full, finished basement and an enclosed porch that leads out to two backyard decks. The .23-acre property also features an in-ground pool, a storage shed and a sprinkler system.

Taxes are $4,985. Mary Terry, Brown Harris Stevens Westhampton, 631-413-7800.

This “move-in-ready” high ranch is “beautifully appointed,” says agent Francine Saer of Coach Realtors, offering “a nice combination of location, space and amenities.”

The four-bedroom house has an open floor plan and plenty of natural light, Saer says, coming from doors and windows designed to let you “enjoy the outside inside.” There are three updated baths, including one in the master suite and a main-floor bath with double-vessel sink vanities and a soaking tub. Bamboo flooring and custom molding are featured in the hallway, dining room and living room, and there’s a wood-burning fireplace in the den.

There’s a renovated, eat-in kitchen with custom wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, Corian countertops, ceramic tile flooring, a mosaic tile backsplash and a farmhouse sink.

Other improvements to the 1969 home include a new furnace, siding and windows, a new brick walkway and a newly installed liner on the in-ground pool. The .52-acre property features front and rear TimberTech decking, a rear patio and a two-car garage. The fenced property is on a cul-de-sac and equipped with in-ground sprinklers.

Taxes are $12,407. Francine Saer, Coach Realtors, 631-680-8676.

This 1931 Colonial was built by a bricklayer as a wedding gift for his daughter, says agent Marie Zabielski, of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. The ornate brickwork is of “spectacular” quality, Zabielski says, and has held up remarkably well over time. The masonry is mirrored inside the home with a handsome brick wood-burning fireplace. Another original feature that has stood the test of time — the colorful stained glass windows on both sides of the fireplace.

Zabielski says a graceful archway connects the living room to the formal dining room, and there are “beautiful oak floors throughout the home.” There are three bedrooms, a bathroom and a half-bath, an eat-in kitchen and a full basement with an outside entrance.

The yard has been thoughtfully planted, Zabielski says, and backs up to a park and wooded area, preserving privacy on the awning-covered patio. There’s a detached garage on the 55-by-95-foot property, which comes with beach rights.

Taxes are $7,499. Marie Zabielski and Myla Borucke, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, 516-448-0419 and 516-641-7743.
