The main entry of the house, which has hardwood floors throughout, opens to a foyer flanked by a living room on one side and a formal dining room on the other. The extended eat-in kitchen, which includes stainless steel appliances, features a breakfast area with sliding glass doors. A fireplace and French doors that open to a back patio adorn the family room. The master bedroom on the second floor features a full bathroom and walk-in closet.
The home also has a finished basement. A circular driveway leads to an attached two-car garage. The 0.4-acre property, on a cul-de-sac, also includes a built-in barbecue and a garden area with an electric firepit.

An oak and etched-glass door opens to a wood-paneled elevator in this four-bedroom Colonial. “Manhattan brownstone-type of attention was brought to this house,” says Jonathan Winter of Coach Realtors. Situated off the entry foyer on the main level, the elevator services three floors, from the basement to the upper foyer on the balconied second level.
The house — built in 1942 and renovated about 15 years ago, Winter says — has three full bathrooms, all of which have solid granite on the floor, ceiling and walls and featured etched-glass shower doors. The granite kitchen has antique French cabinetry, Viking appliances and a center island. It leads to an “executive” dining room.
A marble fireplace warms the living room of the home, which has wide-plank oak floors throughout. The home’s owner is an antique dealer, and Winter says the decorative wood paneling in the den came from the Frick Collection museum in Manhattan and was retrofitted into the house. The banister on the stairway in the house, he adds, is from an antique carousel in Europe. Next to the stairs are double wooden doors that are surrounded by bronze trim from the Metropolitan Opera House, Winter says.
The master bedroom he says features a 35-foot-long walk-in closet. All ceilings on the upper level are vaulted. Described as a French country château, the mostly brick house features a slate roof. The home sits on a 0.26-acre property with a circular driveway and side driveways on each end. The house includes a full finished basement and an elevated brick patio.
The taxes are $27,615. Jonathan Winter, Coach Realtors, 516-480-7563.

Situated in the corner of the upstairs master bedroom of this Colonial is an elevator, technically a one-person lift. It leads downstairs to the kitchen, which has an entryway to a two-car garage that includes a handicap-accessible ramp.
The house, built in 2000, offers four bedrooms and 2 1⁄2 bathrooms. A paver walkway leads to the front porch. Beyond the two-story entry foyer is an open floor plan that includes a living room with French doors, a formal dining room with sliders, a den with a gas fireplace, and the kitchen, which in addition to the elevator, has maple cabinetry and Silestone countertops.
In addition to the master bedroom, which includes a full bathroom with a tiled walk-in shower, the second level has three additional bedrooms. The house, which includes a generator, also has an unfinished basement with eight-foot ceilings, but there is no elevator access to it. There is a laundry chute from the master bedroom to the basement where the washer and dryer are situated. The 110-by-95-foot property includes a back patio, shed and PVC fencing.
