This four-bedroom Victorian gives new meaning to the term “wet bar,” with a 125-gallon fish tank built into the wall behind the bar. In the basement of the home, the bar features color-changing lights beneath its ledge. The area also features surround sound and a custom, antique bronze ceiling with overhead lighting on dimmers, says listing agent Lori Slattery of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. The bar overlooks a den area that features a custom copper tiled ceiling, and is next to a sitting area. The 2002 home, in The Woodlands development, offers 2 1⁄2 bathrooms. The granite kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a center island and a butler’s pantry. The main level also includes a living room with a fireplace and cathedral ceilings, an adjacent den and a dining room. The master suite boasts two walk-in closets and a full bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. Sliding glass doors lead from the kitchen to the backyard of the 0.34-acre property, where an in-ground heated pool with a waterfall is surrounded by a paver patio. The home also has a front porch and an attached two-car garage. The taxes are $15,042. Lori Slattery, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, 631-521-0347

The bar in this four-bedroom split-level is somewhat reminiscent of a place where everybody knows your name. The straight wooden bar, nearly the full-width of the room, is similar in style to that of the bar in the television show “Cheers.” “It sits about eight people comfortably,” says listing agent Michael Stanco of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “The current owners mainly utilize it as a phenomenal entertaining area.” Behind the bar, the wall is adorned with shelving to store bottles, a mirrored wall and a window. The bar area, which includes tiled flooring and an outside entrance, opens to a den with a spiral staircase that connects to a guest bedroom with a bathroom. That room initially served as the master bedroom, Stanco says, until an extension added a new master with tray ceilings and a full bathroom. The 1954 home, with 3 1⁄2 updated bathrooms, includes a living room with a gas fireplace set in floor-to-ceiling stone, and an adjoining dining room. Off the kitchen, which has granite counters and stainless steel appliances, is a sunroom with sliding glass doors that open to one of two decks in the backyard. The 0.48-acre property, a half-mile from Morgan Park, boasts an in-ground pool and a detached two-car garage. The taxes are $14,712. Michael Stanco, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 917-293-0915

The wet bar in the basement of this three-bedroom ranch is one of three bars in the home, says listing agent Amy Ciappetta of Re/Max Eastern Properties. The red and black bar, with a curved bar top, is situated in the corner of the basement and offers a “retro look,” Ciappetta says. Homeowners and guests can grab a drink there, or at the free-standing bar in the home theater area, or at the bar at the outdoor kitchen, which is alongside an in-ground pool. With amenities as such, the home “reminds me of going to an aunt and uncle’s house out of state and then when it’s time to leave, you don’t want to go,” Ciappetta says. The original attached garage was converted into a soundproof home theater with a screen built into the wall, Ciappetta says. Pocket doors lead from the theater into the 2,200-square-foot house, which has a wood-burning fireplace that warms the living room. The eat-in kitchen, which includes a bay window, leads to a dining room with parquet flooring. The master bedroom boasts a full bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and sliding glass doors that open to the back of the 0.34-acre property. The outdoor kitchen, with a sink, barbecue and brick bar, overlooks a patio that surrounds a kidney-shaped pool. The taxes are $11,353. Amy Ciappetta, Re/Max Eastern Properties, 631-780-2249
