Built in 2004, this home at 4 Bay View Ave. in East Hampton is built on 1.37 acres and has four bedrooms in addition to the master suite and three and a half bathrooms. As of January 2013, the home was listed for $1,395,000 by Luci Gherardi and Justin Agnello of Douglas Elliman Real Estate in Smithtown.
Soothing is one way to describe the East Hampton home's first-floor master suite, which has views of the landscape designed with an in-ground heated pool and a pond with a cascading waterfall. The bedroom -- painted in sage with white trim -- features six oversized windows with transoms, a tray ceiling and a wood floor, and the bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub.
The nine-room house, on the market with a $1,395,000 asking price, has a living room with a cathedral ceiling and a fireplace, a den and a formal dining room.
Located at 4 Bay View Ave., it also features an eat-in kitchen with granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances. Amenities include central air-conditioning, five-zone heat, a full basement with a 10-foot ceiling, a mahogany deck and a two-car garage.
The 10-room Colonial, at 15 Church St. in Roslyn Harbor, has three bedrooms in addition to its master suite and three and a half bathrooms. Listed in Janaury 2013 for $1,059,000 by Maria Babaev of Laffey Fine Homes in Greenvale, the home has central air-conditioning, a finished basement and a detached two-car garage on a 100-foot-by-100-foot elevated parcel.
The second floor master suite in the Roslyn Harbor home has seven windows. Another three bedrooms and a second bathroom are also on this level of the home.
Other features of the master include a wood floor and recessed lighting, while the master bath -- one of 3 1/2 baths in the house -- has a dual vanity.
The rooms in the domed-ceilinged turret are among several in the Church Street home that have water views. The first floor of the home has a two-story entrance foyer flanked by the formal living room and formal dining room. The open layout includes a den with a fireplace and eat-in kitchen outfitted with high-end appliances, including a Wolf range.
Though the nine-room house, at 553 Woodbury Rd. in Cold Spring Harbor, is referred to as a Colonial, the floor plan has different levels and some rooms with interesting angles. It was listed for $699,000 by Peggy Moriarty of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty of Cold Spring Harbor as of January 2013.
The 0.38-acre Cold Spring Harbor parcel offers a lush landscape with vignettes of garden spaces.
Call the bi-level master bedroom in the Woodbury Road home a sanctuary of sorts. It accesses a private deck, has a fireplace and a spiral staircase that ascends to a spacious loft.
The Cold Spring Harbor home's master bath has a large soaking tub set against a window the length of the wall.
In addition to the master suite, pictured above, the Cold Spring Harbor home's interesting angles include a kitchen that has a separate eating area a few steps up. The space has a vaulted ceiling with skylights, windows, wainscoting and built-in shelves. Other details in the home include wood floors, moldings, picture windows, French doors and three fireplaces.
