Amityville, 2 Cape Rd.

This newly built waterfront Colonial is elevated, says listing agent Barbara Turel of Realty Connect USA, with a high crawl space, raised mechanical systems and a specially designed fan to draw out moisture in case of a flood. Turel says the use of an energy-efficient heating system and appliances, as well as insulated windows and doors, earned the 2,900-square-foot home an Energy Star certification.

The four-bedroom house has two bathrooms and a half-bath, as well as an eat-in kitchen with custom cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There’s a formal dining room, living room and family room on the first floor, Turel says, and a second-floor master suite features a marble bath with a soaking tub and two walk-in closets.

Hardwood floors, wainscoting and panel molding can be found throughout the home. The house is on a corner lot overlooking a canal and comes with beach rights. There’s a 60-foot bulkhead on the 80-by-100-foot property as well as a brick patio and two-car garage.

Taxes have not yet been determined. Barbara Turel, Realty Connect USA, 516-448-1105.

Massapequa Park, 285 Pittsburg Ave.

This three-bedroom split-level has an abundance of “fabulous features,” says listing agent Kenia Michele Jelcic of Coach Realtors. Jelcic says the house is brightened by the many Andersen windows and the “gleaming” hardwood floors, with décor choices like crown molding reflecting what she calls Pottery Barn style.

The 1958 home offers many updates, Jelcic says, including a new roof and siding and two new bathrooms, including one with a Jacuzzi tub. There’s a formal dining room and renovated kitchen with dark wood cabinets, granite counters and stainless steel appliances.

Jelcic says the upper level features a large master bedroom and the lower level is home to an office, family room and playroom. There’s a three-level deck, awning and aboveground pool on the 95-by-99-foot corner lot. The property is equipped with a security system and in-ground sprinklers.

Taxes are $12,414. Kenia Michele Jelcic, Coach Realtors, 631-499-1000.

Westhampton Beach, 61 Peters Lane

This three-bedroom ranch is “perfect for summer or year-round living,” says listing agent Theresa Thompson of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. The home was built in 2003 but updated in 2014, Thompson says, offering a “bright, open and airy layout,” including a den and dining area with sliding glass doors to the yard and a kitchen with white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The home has three white marble baths.

Thompson says it’s an ideal place for hosting overnight guests because the finished basement doubles the home’s sleeping space, with three additional guest rooms and its own kitchenette. Situated on a .54-acre lot, the house is “summer ready” with an oversized backyard and access to a nearby beach, Thompson says.

Taxes are $3,104. Theresa Thompson, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 631-871-7844.
