There’s more than one way to enjoy the view of the dock and canal at this waterfront Postmodern, says listing agent Barbara Leogrande of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Standing on the mahogany deck or manicured lawn or strolling on the paver path along the 75-foot bulkhead, you can cast your eyes on the Great South Bay and the bridge along the Robert Moses Causeway, Leogrande says.
The owners enjoy those views year-round, she says, from the heated, indoor pool that’s encased in a window-filled room at the rear of the house. The 1990 home has four bedrooms and three full baths, including a master suite that runs the full length of the residence and features a marble spa bath and a lounging balcony overlooking the water.
There’s a formal dining room, a formal living room with a fireplace and a new eat-in kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel Wolf and Thermador appliances. The house is brightened by eight skylights, Leogrande says. There is hardwood and porcelain tile flooring and a combination mudroom/laundry room.
The 0.27-acre property features a built-in barbecue, inground sprinklers, an elaborate paver driveway and a 2.5-car garage.
The taxes are $21,747. Barbara Leogrande, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 631-553-8599.
438 Roosevelt Ave., $499,999
The backyard of this Freeport Colonial is a boater’s bliss, says listing agent Sheilah Hassenbein of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. The 4,800-square-foot home has a large Trex deck with a retractable awning, a new bulkhead and a dock with three boat slips on the deep water of Randall Bay. When those boat slips aren’t occupied by the vessels of the owners and their guests, Hassenbein says, they can be legally rented.
There are bay views from inside the home, where the master suite overlooks the water and features its own updated bathroom, walk-in closet and laundry facilities. The 1997 home offers four generously sized bedrooms and 2 1⁄2 baths, Hassenbein says. There are hardwood floors, a formal dining room and a great room with a wood-burning stove.
The oversized eat-in kitchen has been updated to include dark wood cabinets with a built-in wine rack, granite counters and stainless steel appliances.
The taxes are $11,370. Sheilah Hassenbein, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, 516-603-3099.
1075 Cedar Point Dr. West, $726,000
This chalet-style cape is perched on a secluded cove that’s great for active recreation or passive relaxation, says listing agent Nicole LaBella of The Corcoran Group. The 0.32-acre property features a deck that steps down to a rolling lawn leading to a stone border at the water’s edge. There’s a private dock with electrical service where you can take advantage of the direct bay access and moor your boat or JetSki, LaBella says.
For those who would rather watch the water than play on it, there’s a loft with a balcony where you can sit and enjoy the views of the cove and the Peconic Bay beyond. Built in 1980, the three-bedroom house has two full bathrooms, including one in the master suite. There’s an eat-in kitchen, a dining area and a great room with a wood-burning fireplace.
Rustic woodwork can be found throughout the home — in the railings, exposed beams and wood-paneled ceilings. There’s a shed, outdoor shower and sprinkler system on the property, which comes with beach rights.
The taxes are $6,400. Nicole LaBella, The Corcoran Group, 516-652-8888.
