50 Harrison Ave. West., $445,000

This four-bedroom, two-bathroom high-ranch has natural waterways on two sides of the property, says listing agent Dan Moore of RE/MAX Best. The main canal is directly to the side of the house and the other is along the backyard, with both leading into Fox Creek Channel and Oak Island Channel.

With 145 feet of waterfront and a 45-foot dock, the property provides wetland and sunset views from a variety of angles on the 44-by-100-foot property. Just beyond the front stoop is a fenced-in patio with an awning that overlooks the deepwater canal. The rear also includes an awning-covered patio.

The foyer, which has panoramic and arched windows, leads to a living room-dining room combination that has hardwood floors. The home also features an eat-in kitchen, a den and a laundry room. The elevated home, Moore says, did not suffer any water damage during superstorm Sandy.

The taxes are $13,810. Dan Moore, RE/MAX Best, 516-967-8429


3262 Ocean Harbor Dr., $649,000

In addition to the windows and the elevated back deck that provide views of the canal, this four-bedroom high-ranch also features a waterfront gazebo, says listing agent Ellen Caprino of Real Living Innovations Realty. Situated along the East Rockaway Channel, the 1963 home has 60 feet of bulkhead along the deepwater canal.

The master bedroom, which includes a full bathroom, has sliding glass doors that open to a deck and what Caprino calls a “resort-like yard.” The deck wraps around to another set of sliding doors that open to the kitchen, which includes stainless steel appliances. Beneath the deck is a patio, a koi pond and sliders that lead to a downstairs den with a brick fireplace.

The house has 2 1⁄2 bathrooms, a dining room with wall-to-wall windows that look down on the backyard, as well as oak floors. The 60-by-100-foot property also includes a two-car garage and a front stoop containing glass blocks that light up at night.

The taxes are $11,431. Ellen Caprino, Real Living Innovations Realty, 516-317-1059


89 Bellhaven Rd., $899,999

This three-bedroom Contemporary offers a view of the water from every window in the house, says listing agent Joyce Roe of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “From the front of house you’re looking at Bellport Bay and on the other side of the house you’re looking at the canal,” she says.

The side facing the bay features two levels of wall-to-wall windows, in the living room on the first floor and the master bedroom on the second floor. A den overlooks an inground saltwater pool, which is surrounded by a Trex deck, a privacy wall and greenery. Stairs lead down to the backyard, which is lined with 84 feet of bulkhead at the end of a canal.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, a center island and a breakfast room. The master bedroom includes an en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The home, which features LED lighting throughout and hardwood flooring, also has a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room and 2 1⁄2 bathrooms. There’s a full basement and a two-car garage on the 0.42-acre corner property.

The taxes are $17,780. Joyce Roe, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 631-363-5469
