North Haven, 168 Ferry Rd., $550,000

The artist’s studio on the grounds of this cottage has been divided in two, says listing agent Mary Ann Cinelli of Brown Harris Stevens, giving both of the owners space to work on their individual projects. Cinelli says the studio was built years after the homeowners purchased the property as a summer escape.

The pitched roof studio features exposed beams and decorative windows, and includes a workbench and a sitting area. The home itself is a 600-square-foot cottage, Cinelli says, offering two bedrooms and one full bath. The 1980 home is “artistically styled,” she says, making the most of the compact space, including a light-filled living room with a vaulted ceiling and a bright kitchen with a door that opens to the backyard.

Cinelli says the home and studio are set back on the 0.22-acre property, which includes open lawns, trees and a path between the buildings. The home’s location is a plus, Cinelli says, down the road from the Shelter Island Ferry, walking distance to bay beaches and close to the shops and restaurants of Sag Harbor Village.

Taxes are $5,700. Mary Ann Cinelli, Brown Harris Stevens, 516-551-5923.

Greenport, 755 Moores Lane, $699,000

One of the owners of this Greenport home is an accomplished artist, says listing agent Marie Beninati of Beninati Associates, so she built a studio where she can create and showcase her work. Beninati says the studio, which spans the second floor of the home, was designed as a place where the owner could paint, display and store large pieces of art. It includes skylights and a sitting area.

The 1966 home offers three bedrooms, two updated marble bathrooms and two additional half-baths. Beninati says the renovated kitchen, which has banks of windows, features high-end appliances and granite counters. There’s a formal dining room, library and living room with a fireplace.

The home has a main-floor master suite, hardwood floors and a full basement. The 0.37-acre property features a breezeway porch and patio, a floating deck and in-ground sprinklers and comes with rights to a private beach nearby.

Taxes are $7,000. Marie and Lee Beninati, Beninati Associates, 631-765-5333.

Locust Valley, 58 Kaintuck Lane, $999,999

“Peaceful, serene and magical,” is how listing agent Regina Rogers describes the artist’s studio at this Locust Valley home. Set apart from the main house with its own entrance, kitchen and bath, the studio is nestled in 2.01-acre property, giving artists a private space for their “creativity to flow,” Rogers says.

The four-bedroom home also feels like an escape surrounded by “wooded landscaping” with views “through oversized windows of a babbling brook across the street,” she adds.

The 1972 home has four full, renovated marble baths and an updated eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a mosaic tile backsplash and a center island. There’s a combination living room and dining room with sliding glass doors to a multilevel deck.

Amenities include an elevator, a fireplace, skylights and hardwood floors. There’s a rooftop deck, stone patio and two-car garage. The property comes with beach rights.

Taxes are $22,564. Regina Rogers, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 516-314-0953.
