Even if owners want to use the garage strictly as a workshop, parking still won’t be an issue thanks to a seven-car driveway, says listing agent Tom Hug of Hug Real Estate. The workshop, inside the 1.5-car garage attached to the one-level California ranch, features a work bench with shelving. Three windows on the wall just above the bench provide additional lighting.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home, which Hug says could be a mother/daughter house, includes a living room with a gas fireplace, a sauna and a den with skylights and hardwood flooring. There is both an eat-in kitchen and a formal dining room. The 105-by-60-foot property, which includes a back patio, has beach rights and is within walking distance of the ocean.
Taxes are $17,927. Tom Hug, Hug Real Estate, 516-431-8000.

The main house includes two bedrooms, one of which is a loft, one bathroom, and a kitchen with a pantry. The 1.1-acre property is a five-minute drive to Ponquague Beach.
