There’s a wide variety of home sizes and styles on Long Island, even at the identical asking price. The latest median closing price for houses on the Island is $368,500, according to the Multiple Listing Service of Long Island. Here’s a look at five houses near that price and what they have to offer prospective buyers.


2 Cliftwood Dr., $368,000

There’s a “Currier and Ives charm” about this 1953 Cape, says listing agent Cathy Casalicchio of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. The cedar-shingled home was modeled after the community’s original general store, Casalicchio says.

There’s a wood-paneled eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room with built-in cabinetry and a living room with coffered ceilings and an intricately crafted fireplace. The home has three bedrooms, 1 1⁄2 baths, hardwood floors and central air-conditioning.

The full basement has high ceilings and a workshop, plus an outside entrance. There’s a covered front porch and rear patio on the 0.33-acre property, which is on a corner lot and surrounded by a split-rail fence.

The taxes are $9,851. Cathy Casalicchio, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, 631-678-8929.

East Patchogue

244 Hospital Rd., $369,000

This 1987 ranch was remodeled inside and out in 2013, says listing agent Edward Ferraro of RE/MAX Integrity Leaders, to include every imaginable upgrade.

When you step inside, you’ll find a kitchen with skylights, built-in shelves and stainless steel energy-efficient appliances, including a double oven.

There’s a formal dining room and a living room with a stone fireplace that extends to the vaulted ceiling. Two sets of French doors open from the living room to a large deck overlooking the yard. There are two full baths — including a granite master bath with an open shower and a step-up tub. The master suite features an oversized walk-in closet and sliding glass doors to the deck.

The home also offers hardwood floors, decorative molding and a full basement with an outside entrance. There are new heating, central air-conditioning and water filtration systems, Ferraro says, and the home has been approved for solar electric.

This 1988 home has been completely renovated to include everything from a new kitchen and two new baths to a new roof, siding, windows, floors, plumbing and electrical system, says listing agent Antoinette Terlizzo of Coldwell Banker.
